Well my top 3 support are:
Alistar he is the cc king
Tresh He is just great overal
Leona she got a great ult with a great inaithoor (dunno how to spell it)

If you're looking for a single champion, I'd reccomend Zyra. She doesn't have the kill potential of Leona, the protection of Lulu or the poke of Sona however she is in a sense a jack of all trades. She gets to save money by buying less wards due to her plants, she has decent poke with q-e, she has really high burst for a support, she has the most AoE CC on a support (Leona has more single target CC). Not to mention her late game is monstrous... She's got a pretty high skill cap but she's definitely one to consider.

Imo i like Karma,Thresh,Nami and Alistar.
They all have nice CC and great utility they bring to team.

I'd say Thresh for an aggresive lane, Blitz for teamfight initiator (landing a wrong pull in lane = dead adc), Janna for a sustain + poke lane (Lulu is great aswell, but janna shield = OP), Soraka for a passive lane.

Meta plays:
Ashe support (CC)
Sejuani support
Shen support

I would say Leona would be a good pick, always great at pinning targets down and neautralising them as well as good damage. However she is not great against characters with a long range E.g. Caitlyn.

However against Leona and similar (good initiates) pick Janna, her Q practically negates successful leaps or hooks. Plus a great shield, global movement speed boost and ultimate that disrupts positioning and heals.

Grab champs are great as well if played with good positioning E.g. Thresh/Blitz. Pick your target, bring them toward you + knock ups and ultis that either slow or silence.

All good picks, but can counter each other when played well. All situational in the end.

I would recommend you Leona.
She is a a solid pick, who doesnt get banned in ranked games like Blitz or Tresh.
I dont know what your gamestyle is?

Aggresive?
Poke?
Defence?

I prefer a aggresive playstyle. I like to kill early levels: 1 / 7.

The most populair supports nowadays are: Tresh - Leona - Taric and Lulu.

Leone fits perfect in the current META-game, what is health.
With the right runes and masteries, you are unkillable with Leona compared to a Janna, soraka w/e.

Im a ADC, and i LOVE a leone by my side, cause of Leona's passive.

Nami is my favourite.
She has a very long stun on her q (hard to land but rewarding), nice heal + damage on w, great buff for your adc for an e and a knockup plus a slow on her ult (hard to land but whatever, its good).
