Editors Corner: Leonine

Leonine is Merriam-Websters word of the day.

Heres the definition:

of, relating to, suggestive of, or resembling a lion

Heres the origin:

Leonine derives from Latin leo, meaning "lion," which in turn comes from Greek len. Len gave us an interesting range of words: leopard (which derives from len combined with pardos, a Greek word for a panther-like animal); dandelion (which came by way of the Anglo-French phrase dent de lionliterally, "lion’s tooth"); and chameleon (which combines len with the Greek chamai, meaning "on the ground"); as well as the names Leo, Leon, and Leonard. But the dancer’s and gymnast’s leotard is not named for its wearer’s cat-like movements. Rather, it was simply named after its inventor, Jules Leotard, a 19th-century French aerial gymnast.

And this is my Leo. He doesnt like Mondays.
