Question The name Lleyton...

Does anybody know what it means or comes from? I realized it's a bit odd and I've never heard of anyone else with that name. Is it a family name?

Re: The name Lleyton...

I remember reading that the conventional spelling is Leyton or Leighton, but his mum wanted something a bit different and put the extra 'L' in. No idea what it means tho

edit: did a quick search - is derived from Layton - From a surname which was originally derived from a place name meaning "leek garden" in Old English or 'from the meadow farm'

Re: The name Lleyton...

hey

i just looked it up. "Leighton" means "Herb garden. From the meadow farm". "Layton" is a variant too,but i can't find "Lleyton" anywhere. I guess he's unique

Re: The name Lleyton...

Speaking of names, what is Lleyton's ethnic heritage? Hewitt is usually considered an English or Irish name. Anybody know?



C'mon, Lleyton!

Re: The name Lleyton...

I remember during the Masters in Houston, Bud Collins said it's a Welsh name.

Re: The name Lleyton...

Last Name: Hewitt


1. English, Welsh, and Scottish: from the medieval personal name Huet, a diminutive of Hugh. See also Hew. The surname has also long been established in Ireland.
2. English: topographic name for someone who lived in a newly made clearing in a wood, Middle English hewett (Old English hīewet, a derivative of hēawan ‘to chop’,‘to hew’).



Last Name: Hugh


1. English: from the Old French personal name Hu(gh)e, introduced to Britain by the Normans. This is in origin a short form of any of the various Germanic compound names with the first element hug ‘heart’, ‘mind’, ‘spirit’. Compare, for example, Howard 1, Hubble, and Hubert. It was a popular personal name among the Normans in England, partly due to the fame of St. Hugh of Lincoln (1140–1200), who was born in Burgundy and who established the first Carthusian monastery in England.
2. In Ireland and Scotland this name has been widely used as an equivalent of Celtic Aodh‘fire’, the source of many Irish surnames (see for example McCoy).

Re: The name Lleyton...

I know someone else called Lleyton. Like a lot of names with double letters, it's the Welsh spelling, I think I'm pretty sure that Glynn is also a Welsh name, so I'm guessing that some way back, they're Welsh! I have no idea about Cherilyn - I don't even know her maiden name. Most Aussies are a big mix of all sorts of backgrounds. It's really quite fun when you get talking to people about all their different ancestors.

Re: The name Lleyton...

A google search suggests Cherilyn's birth name was Rumball. Maybe someone could look that up

Rumball? Isn't that some kind of weird alcohol-based candy?

Re: The name Lleyton...

Here is an analyzation of the name "lleyton" from the Kalabrian center

Description of Your First Name of: Lleyton

The following brief summary describes only a few qualities of your first name. There are many additional factors (legal name, nicknames, family surname, combined names, previous names, business signature, and, very importantly, your inner potential or birthpath as determined from your date of birth) that create and mold your entire personality - and your entire life.

The name Lleyton creates the urge to be friendly and diplomatic, but we point out that it limits your versatility and vision, tuning you to technical details. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the fluid and elimination system.

The name of Lleyton incorporates a potential aptitude for concentration and patient, logical thought along mechanical or scientific lines. You tend to prefer to follow normal routine rather than cope with the disruption and uncertainty entailed in trying something new. You gravitate to situations where you have stability and the opportunity to make slow step-by-step progress, preferably in a technical field. Procrastination and lack of self-confidence may restrict your success.
