Specialists agree that the name Lech comes from a Slavic element "lest'" - a cunning action. So "lestek" is a cunning man.

In addition to being the source of the name Lech, the Lendians have given rise to the names of Poland in many foreign languages (for example, in Iran, Poland is called Lahestan, which is derived from the Lendians). Lechia is an obsolete name for Poland derived from the Lendians.
