Hi My mother's name was Leita. This name was unheard of, and family members were never quite sure where my grandparents got the name from. I was surprised and delighted to see the word on an Icelandic site. Was this word ever used anywhere in Iceland, (or Scandinavia) as a girl's name??? We now have a niece called Leita (named after Mum), and the name is still unique. Nobody seems to know its origin, but my family members are eager for me to find out if the name is somehow linked to Iceland. Thank you.
