LEAVY Family HistoryThis interesting name, with variant forms (Mac)Leavy and Levy, is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic Irish name Mac Con Sleibhe. The Gaelic prefix "mac" means "son of ", with "con", a hound and "sleibhe", mountain, hence "son of the mountain hound". This name was borne by an old county Longford sept who were akin to the O' Farrells. Longford was in fact, originally known as "Longphort Ui Fhearghail" (i.e. O' Farrell's fortress). Earlier Anglicized forms of Mac Con Sleibhe appear as MacEnlieve, MacEnleve etc..
