Background: As with many Scottish families, there are several possibilities as to the origin of the name. It may be a diminutive of the Anglo-Saxon 'lisse', meaning 'happy'. In Norse it means 'a stirring fellow'. The late Professor Keith Leask of Aberdeen believed that Liscus, chief of the Haedui, a tribe of Gauls described by Julius Caesar in his Gallic Wars, was the ancestor of the Leasks.

Variations: Leask, Lask, Lisk, Liesk, Leisk, Laesk, Lesh, Lesk, Leysk, Laysk, Leisk, Laesk.
