Leopard Geckos generally dont like being handeld, but with brief but regular handling they should become more used to it as they get older. I know someone who did'nt regularly handle their Leo and it now bites every single time you try to handle him.

I got two new leo's two weeks ago, one is fine to be handled and seems unbothered being out of the viv, the other is so skittish and really hard to keep track of.

I hold her on the bed and make an enclosed space with my legs and let her run around there, this way she has to climb my legs if she wants to run away and it gives me more time to grab her!

Most of ours are in the very handleable catagory the males get grumpy when we take them out of the female colonies for a rest (can't blame them) and a couple even appear to respond to their names.
