Leverett Family History
Leverett Name Meaning
English:: from the Middle English personal name Levered Leveret Lovered (Old English Lēofrǣd from lēof ‘dear beloved’ + rǣd ‘counsel advice’). Levered and Leveret were sometimes altered to Leverod(e) and Leverote perhaps through false association with personal names ending in the interchangeable hypocoristic suffixes -et(e) and -ot(e). nickname from Middle English: Anglo-Norman French leveret ‘young hare’ is possible though no certain examples are on record.
