My nick combines the names of two leading characters from the Japanese anime based on the Osamu Tezuka manga; Leo is Kimba the white lion and Laia is his wife, Kitty grown up.
I used to watch Kimba and Astroboy on TV when I was little, with a good dose of Godzilla and Mothra movies.
If anyone watches Japanese TV, I was a big fan of the Japanese dorama Ienakiko (the one with Yumi Adachi which aried with the title Angry Innocence where I lived) and I have been dying for yeeeeears to see it again. If anyone knows if it is on DVD or VCD in Japan or Singapore or wherever, I'd love to know. Just saying. :)
