The name Leif comes from the Scandinavian Royal Line of Odin, the Norse God who himself goes by many names. Both heir and descendant the barer of the name has a great store of 'hamingja' (ON) meaning luck. The older generation of men bare this name and often courtesy is paid to them due to their social status as elders. A rise in popularity of the name during the 1970's is an indicator of another algorithmic surge during 2016-2020. The first letter of the name Leif in Runes is 'Laguz/Laukr" and this has special reference to water especially the sea, lakes and fords and has common links with the vegetable leek, a symbol of life, health and virility.
