The modern constellation Leo Minor lies across one of the quadrants symbolized by the Vermilion Bird of the South (南方朱雀, Nán Fāng Zhū Què), and Three Enclosures (三垣, Sān Yuán), that divide the sky in traditional Chinese uranography.

The name of the western constellation in modern Chinese is 小獅座 (xiǎo shī zuò), meaning "the small lion constellation".
