Langlíf written in Viking Age runes (Group A)
Group A runes were most common in Viking Age Denmark
Old Norse Langlíf (f.)
In Scandinavia, the female name Langlíf is first recorded from the middle of the twelfth century. It is suggested that it occurs in scattered (and often late-recorded) place-names in England, in North Yorkshire, in Cumberland, and in a minor name Leevingrey Furlong in Flintham, Bingham Wapentake, Nottinghamshire. The name means ‘long life’ and may originally have been a by-name.
