Quoting Jared

"Years ago, there was a rumor going around that I was dead because I was working in Ireland. Once I got back, people who seemed very upset would come up to me and say, "We thought you were dead!"

I'm always in need of scans, concert and fan pictures. Full credit will be given! Please donate to this e-mail

Info sent by Emanuela:
"...the surname is Italian: here it's quite widespread. It existed alredy in the XV century, so I'm sure it's Italian, not foreign. As for the meaning, often Italian surname don't have a clear meaning, but since many of them come from Latin, I looked up in the Latin dictionary. The word "leto" is the ablative form of "letum", which means "death, ruin". Hence the word "letale" (lethal). "Leto" is also the first person of the verb "to kill" (so "leto" means "I kill")... I don't think the surname it's Greek. Even though the word exists in this language, it's not a surname, but a mythological proper noun and usually these names are not used as surnames."
Info sent by Jackles:
"In Greek mythology: Le-to-' (Lato in Dorian Greek, the "hidden one") is a daughter of Coeus and Phoebe (both Titans), and in the Olympian scheme of things, Zeus is the father of her twins, Apollo and Artemis. Leto is hardly ever mentioned, apart from being pregnant and finding a suitable place to be delivered of Apollo, the second of her twins. This is her one active mythic role: once Apollo and Artemis are grown, Leto withdraws, to remain a dim, benevolent matronly figure upon Olympus, dark and mild, her part already played."
Info sent by Nina:
"The surname origin is latin, but NOT from the word "letum". It's from LAETUS (glad), like the XV's century humanist Julius Pomponius Laetus (Giulio Pomponio LETO)."
