Alistar. Taric works too.

Edit: Alistar can basically reset Leonas initiation. If she E's onto your carry, you just punt theirs away with W, or knock Leona into your turret. If you engage, things can get messy for either side. Ali vs Leona is kind of forced to be a passive lane (not counting ganks).

Taric is just Taric. You can E their carry when Leona attaches to yours, and make them miss a sunlight proc or 2. Keep your W up while sunlight proc's are available and pop it when there aren't any. This lane gets messy.

Just remember, if you do pick Taric, never ever stun her.

Keeping the lane near to your own tower is another good strategy. Her initiate is essentially the inverse of a Blitzcrank initiate (except minion piercing and much cheaper), so the best thing to do is to give her a bad landing one way or the other. Picking Taric is another great idea.
Please don't go. The drones need you. They look up to you.

I can't think of any situation in which picking Taric is a bad idea. If they have an aggressive combo you can outsustain with your heal, pokers will be initiated on as will passive supports. He's the jack of all trades.

So Taric and Alistar make great work against Leona, Alistar doing a little better than Taric with multiple ways to peel.
