It may also have been a metonymic occupational name for a hunter of hares.English: topographic name for someone who lived in a place thickly grown with rushes, from Old English lǣfer ‘rush, reed, iris’. Compare Laver . Great and Little Lever in Greater Manchester are named with this word (in a collective sense), so the surname may also be a habitational name from these places.
