Jewish (Ashkenazic): ornamental name, or perhaps an ornamental elaboration associated with the name Leyb; from Middle High German lēwe ‘lion’, translating the Yiddish male personal name Leyb ( see Low 3) + German stein ‘stone’, ‘rock’. There may have been some confusion between the first element and the personal name Levi ( see Levy ).
