Well, it looks more as though Leon became Arieh, rather than the other way around, seeing as he was buried in Israel. :) Yes, Leon and Arieh both mean lion. As does Leib in Yiddish. A lion was the symbol of the tribe of Judah (Yehuda in Hebrew) so the names Arieh or Leib and Yehuda are often seen together.
All the best,
