Levenstein Name Meaning
Jewish (Ashkenazic): ornamental name, or perhaps an ornamental elaboration associated with the name Leyb; from Middle High German lewe ‘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).
