    History and meaning of the name Levi

    The name Levi is of Hebrew origin and means “In Association with the Lord” and also means “united and joined in harmony.” In the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament, Levi was the third of 12 sons of Jacob and Leah, and he was important enough to have an entire tribe of Hebrew priests name after him, the Levites. The Levites are also one of the 12 tribes of the Israelites, and led to the name Levi being a name that signifies the association and unification of man with the Lord.
