About the name
Leigh: (lee) A surname. At least this is what is usually given.
But I think it is not only a surname, but that surname is derived via
an earlier corruption of the Scandanavian
name "Leif" (lafe). The "gh" can represent the "f" sound (just like "ph" can)
in words like "enough". So "Leif" might have been spelled "Leigh" early on and
then the pronunciation evolved into "Lee". Just a theory, but certainly
more interesting than "A surname".
Leigh Norman Brasington
Norman: (nor-mun) A Norseman. Or perhaps a person from Normandy, which
is where William the Conqueror came from. Of course, Normandy got its name from Norse settlers.
Brasington: (braise-zing-ton) From the town of
in Derbyshire, England. Click here for more info on the Brasington family in the USA.
