The Clan MacLea, also known as the Highland Livingstones originate in Cowall and Lorn in Argyll. There are two schools of thought concerning the derivation of the name MacLea.
Niall Campbell, 10th Duke of Argyll wrote that MacLea derived from Dunshleibe son of Aedh Alain, giving rise to the MacDunsleves.
Another theory is that it comes from the name Mac Duinnshleibhe, which is closely connected with the Royal Family of Ulster.
