    Name Meaning

    English: perhaps a variant of Laythorpe, a habitational name from Laythorpe, the former name of a settlement in Lincolnshire which is recorded as Ledulftorp in 1086 and Leilthorp in the 12th century. The placename derives from the Old Norse personal name Leithulfr + Old Norse thorp ‘secondary settlement, outlying farmstead’.
