Re: Liffmann, Leiffmann #names

it is not clear if you refer to some other thread, of if your query is standing alone. You don't mention any specific location. The last name Liffmann/Leiffmann can often be based on the first name Liebmann/Lipmann/Lifmann, which is a German version like Leizer of the Hebrew Eliezer/Elazar and sometimes other Hebrew names (Yedidya etc.)
In this case the name has nothing to do with the status of Levy.
