Boy Names related to Lion

Lion names for baby boys, with 59 entries. The lion, the majestic cat that symbolizes strength and supremacy, is also befittingly described as the king of the jungle.

It is specifically that quality of beauty that sets lion names apart from names that solely have lion-like meanings, such as courageous or brave. Boys names that mean lion have been popularized by western movies in their lion characters, such as with Simba in the animated movie The Lion King, and Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia.
