You finally found the perfect baby name for your perfect little angel... it works with your last name, it honors a relative, it nods to your heritage, it doesn't rhyme with a curse word, and neither you nor your significant other has a relative, ex-lover, or enemy with that name. But before you go inking it on a certificate, you might want to check out its meaning. Some of the most beautiful and popular names have some of the most bizarre and not-so-pleasing meanings!

Meaning:She who entangles men

Weary? Please! Everyone knows that Princess Leah is the real hero of Star Wars! (Ok, ok: Leia, Leah... she still rocks!) Plus Leah Remini and Lea Thompson are "anything but" as well!
