My name is Leonardo im 39. As a kid it was misspelled and mispronounced. Everyone thought it was Leonard and the last "o" was a mistake. However, I thought it was unique and i was always the only one, so this is how i saw myself. Even with the Ninja Turtle craze and the rise of Dicaprio; it is still rare.. One other thing, people always ask how did i get my name and why. I think this is cool.
