Dear Bruryah,

The Leningrad Codex is called "Ktav Yad Leningrad" in Hebrew. 

Remember, that unlike the Aleppo Codex, the LC was not in Jewish hands, and
was not used by Jewish copyists or printers until modern times. There are no
Jewish traditions or legends associated with it. So its importance is more
"technical" than "religious".

Just curious if there is a Hebrew name for the Leningrad Codex. 

Because the Aleppo Codex has a Hebrew name (Keter Aram Tzova), I feel that
it would be befitting such important manuscript as the LC to have a Hebrew
name (a real name, not spelling out the words Leningrad Codex in Hebrew). Is
there one?
