A confident and talented man, quick feet. Has amazing hand-eye-foot coordination, and will most likely make a fool out of you in any sport not called basketball (especially soccer). Also a common name for a king, probably because it is associated with the name Leo often given to lions who as we all know are the kings of the jungle.
