Etymology[edit]

Generally considered as a derivative of the Hungarian verb lesz ‎(to be) hence its original meaning (see below); another theory is it might be derived from Slavic lovac (“hunter”). Its origin is unrelated to the Hungarian noun levente ‎(knight).

  • IPA(key): [ˈlɛvɛntɛ]
  • (file)
  • Hyphenation: Le‧ven‧te
