Aliff Family History

Aliff Name Meaning
English: variant of Ayliff(e), which is from a Middle English personal name. In most cases, this is Old Norse Eilífr ‘eternal life’, but it could also have absorbed the female name Ayleve (Old English Æ{dh}elgifu ‘noble gift’). It could also have absorbed a truncated form of Irish McAuliffe.
