    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Leyburn in North Yorkshire, High Leybourne in Godalming in Surrey, or Leybourne in Kent. The North Yorkshire name may derive from Old English hlēg ‘shelter’ + burna ‘spring, stream’. The Surrey placename may derive from an Old English personal name Lealla + Old English burna. The Kent placename probably derives from a lost stream name Lille (of uncertain origin) + Old English burna.
