Levant Name Meaning
French (Brittany, Touraine): from French levant ‘east’, a topographic name for someone who lived in the eastern part of a town or settlement, or outside it to the east; or a regional name for someone who had migrated westward (and so was regarded as coming from the east). It may also denote someone from the Levant, the eastern Mediterranean (see Leventis).
