English:1. (of Norman origin) nickname from Anglo-Norman French leuet ‘wolf cub’ ( see Low 3). 2. habitational name from any of the various places in Normandy called Livet. All are of obscure, presumably Gaulish, etymology. 3. from the Middle English personal name Lefget, Old English Lēofgēat, composed of the elements lēof ‘dear’, ‘beloved’ + the tribal name Gēat ( see Jocelyn ). 4. possibly from an unrecorded Middle English survival of the Old English female personal name Lēofgȳð, composed of the elements lēof ‘dear’, ‘beloved’ + gȳð ‘battle’.
