LENNOX : (Gaelic.) Local. From the County of Lennox; Scotland. The original name was Leven-ach, the field on the Leven, from the river Leven, which flows through the county, called in Latin Levinia. The river was so called from Llyfn, in the Welsh, which signifies a smooth, placid stream. Leven-achs, for a while spelt and written Levenax, and finally Lennox.
