St. Leobin was a bishop of Chartres in the 6th century (whence the name’s popularity in the Middle Ages), and several places were named Saint-Lubin after him, as for example in Eure, Eure-et-Loir, and Loir-et-Cher. Jewish (from Belarus): habitational name for someone from Lyubin and Lyubny, now in Belarus. Jewish (from Belarus): metronymic from the Yiddish personal name Lube, from eastern Slavic ‘love’.
