Livermore Family History
Livermore Name Meaning
English: probably a habitational name from Livermere in Suffolk. This is first found in the form Leuuremer (c.1050), which suggests derivation from Old English l?fer ‘rush’, ‘reed’ + mere ‘lake’. However, later forms consistently show i in the first syllable, suggesting Old English lifer ‘liver’, referring either to the shape of the pond or to the coagulation of the water.
