In Roman times the city was the garrison of the 7th Legion, known as the Legio Gemina. The city's name became reduced from Legion(em) to Leon(em), and in this form developed an unetymological association with the word for ‘lion’, Spanish león.2 Spanish: from the personal name León, from Greek leōn ‘lion’ ( see Lyon 2). Leon is also found as a Greek family name.3 Spanish: nickname for a fierce or brave warrior, from león ‘lion’.
