Lovelady Name Meaning
English: nickname from Middle English love(n), luve(n) ‘to love’ + lavedi ‘lady’. Reaney describes this as an obvious nickname for a philanderer; but perhaps it denoted a man who loved a woman above his social status, given the connotation of high status carried by the word lavedi.
