Levings Name Meaning

North German: variant of the habitational name Lewing, from a place near Stade in Lower Saxony. North German: patronymic from a personal name (Lehwing or Lewien), formed with Middle Low German lev ‘dear’ + win ‘friend’. English: perhaps a habitational name from Levens in Cumbria, probably so named from the Old English personal name Leofa (+ genitive n) + næss ‘promontory’, ‘headland’. Possibly a hypercorrected spelling of Irish Levens, a County Louth name, which Woulfe interprets as an Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Dhuinnshlébhín, a variant of Dunleavy.
