How were Sheldon and Leonard named?

By the show's creators I mean.  I just noticed a similarity in their first names with that of late comedian Shelley Berman, full name Sheldon Leonard Berman.  Or would that just be a coincidence?

That would be a coincidence.  The two names were  taken from the name of Sheldon Leonard. He was an actor and  in the 1950s and 1960s, a  producer(Make Room for Daddy/The Danny Thomas Show,  The Andy Griffith Show, I Spy, and The Duck Van Dyke Show, among others).  The creators of The Big Bang Theory, Bill Prady  and Chuck Lorre, admired his work.
