Levander Name Meaning
Swedish (also common in Finland): ornamental name of various origins. One 19th century bearer of the name, a priest, took it from the name of his home farm, Hjärtungen, translating Swedish hjärta ‘heart’ into Hebrew lev and adding the suffix -ander, a derivative Greek andr- ‘man’. In another example, the surname was taken from Levene, a place in Västergötland province.
