Laybourn Name Meaning
English: habitational name from Leyburn in North Yorkshire, so named from an uncertain first element (possibly Old English hleg ‘shelter’) + Old English burna ‘stream’. Leybourne in Kent, which is named from an Old English personal name Lytta + burna, may also have contributed to the surname to some extent, although it is a predominantly northern name.
