This one is easy - It's Old English (or Anglo-Saxon), leof
meaning "dear, agreeable, beloved" (as seen in Leofwine
) and stan
meaning "stone" (as seen in Athelstan
You could have found that out yourself quite easily, by doing searches for "leof*" and "*stan" on the main page (www.behindthename.com
). I don't mind helping you out with these queries, but it would be better if you learned to research the easy ones yourself, and only posted the ones that aren't so easy.
