    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place in Essex, so named from the Old English personal name Lissa (probably a pet form of Lēofsige, from lēof ‘dear, beloved’ + sige ‘victory’) + tūn ‘enclosure, settlement’.Scottish: habitational name from any of the places in West Lothian and Midlothian, which probably have the same origin as in 1 above. This surname is also found in Ireland.Irish: Anglo-Norman name which has been in Limerick since the 13th century, originally de Lexinton, so presumably a habitational name from Lexington in Essex.
