    1853

    Tras un prolongado período de guerras civiles, entre 1853 y 1860 se formó una república federal con el nombre de República Argentina. Mediante guerras contra los pueblos mapuche, tehuelche, ranquel, wichi y kom, conocidas como Conquista del Desierto y Conquista del Chaco, la República Argentina tomó posesión de las llanuras chaqueña y pampeana y de la Patagonia oriental, conformando su territorio actual, el octavo más extenso del mundo. En 1853 se dicta la Constitución Nacional Argentina. Entre 1862 y 1930 transcurrió un largo período de estabilidad constitucional, en el que debido a una gran ola migratoria proveniente sobre todo de Italia y España, la población creció cinco veces más rápido que el mundo.

    Spanish (León): habitational name from León, a city in northwestern Spain, named with Latin legio, genitive legionis ‘legion’, a division of the Roman army. In Roman times the city was the garrison of the 7th Legion, known as the Legio Gemina. The city's name became shortened from Legion(em) to Leon(em), and in this form developed an unetymological association with the word for ‘lion’ (Spanish león).

    French (Léon) and Spanish (León): from the personal name Léon, León, from Latin leo ‘lion’, or the cognate Greek leōn. The name Leo(n) was borne by numerous early Christian martyrs and thirteen popes.
