Meaning: Bright and Shining Light Torch Origin: German
The German name Leni (leh-nee) means ‘Bright and Shining Light’ or ‘Torch’. It is a diminutive of Elena – from Helen.
I love this name and the fresh lease of life it’s given to the dated Lenny. Its uniquely spelled variant form Lene (leh-NAY), is a treasure of its own.
