Subject: Leoba/Lioba and Teilo.

According to http://www.avitree.com/onomastics/names.jsp?al=lnames.html Lioba is a Gothic name meaning "that which presents a barrier", but according to http://www.babynamescountry.com/meanings/Lioba.html it means "beloved". Which is more accurate?

Do Leoba and Lioba have different roots, or are they variations on the same?

Also, does anyone have any information on the name of St. Teilo?

Thanks in advance.
