de Liath Leo: líon beag: Luimneach-Tiobraid Árann. Bhí siad lonnaithe in aice le Cromadh sa 16 céad - Angla-Normannaigh, is cosúil, mar deir Mac Giolla Iasachta go dtagann an sloinne ón bhFraincis de l'eau (uisce). Maireann an sloinne i Sasana, leis, agus seans gur as "leon" (Laidin: leo) annsan é. Ní mór a rá go bhfuil míniú eile ag de Bhulbh: de Leye .i. "ag an móinéar". Agus an ceann is simplí: gaelú ar Grey nó Gray. SI & SGG.
