I like it. I'm naming my irst son Leslie. I don't know any girls named Leslie, but I know a guy. My husband's aunts think its girly and my son will be picked on, which I don't understand. They are all over 60 and I don't get how they don't know It's really a man's name. And they have very old-fashioned names- one actually has a guy's name. But either way, I like the name and beli've it is a more traditional name. Pronounced LES-LEE

My name is Leslie and so was my Fathe's. He named me Leslie Glenn and his name was Leslie Guy. He passed away when I was 10 months old in 1962. He named me Leslie Glenn so we would have the'same initials and I would not be called Jr. I did get picked on a bit in elementary school and I blooded a few noses. I now and have been going by Les since I was 18. I am now 65.

I'm a Leslie. Hmmmm I don't hate my name but I don't really love it either. And people are always mispelling my name the first time they hear it. Alot of people have taken'to calling me Lesie. It was cute when my boyfriend started it, now It's just kinda annoying. Oh! I'm a gilr Leslie!! Lol Is it just me or does my first line sound like I'm introducing myself to a support group???

Both my father and I are named Leslie. I didn't care for it as a kid, and was constantly explained to people why it wasn't a "girl's" name, but I love it now. I'm a 62 year old male. BTW, I think the pronunciation with the Z sound is BrIt'sh.

I am a girl Leslie and I am constantly telling people how it is pronounced with an s sound not a z sound. If I wanted to be Lezlie I would spell it that way. It just gets really annoying.

Leslie is originally a boy's name, so for girls it is originally spelled as Lesley. Just like Ashley (boys) and Ashleigh for girls.

I am a 57 year old male named Leslie. I realize the name is used more for females since the 50s, but I like it because it is unique. The only time I cringe is when someone calls me "LEZLIE". Where they get the "Z" I don't know.
