Meaning:meadow land
Leland is an unusual gender-neutral name that sings of lulling quiet and serene stillness. Perhaps most suited to a tranquil youth, the British Leland derives its unique sound from the Middle English lay or ley, which means "an open field." Seen as a "meadowland" ill-served for heavy toil, Leland welcomes the cultivation of the mind. It's a sweet name for a deep thinker who is happiest when nourishing their soul with peaceful contemplation.
