History of Levan, Utah
Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)


Levan (Juab) is on I-15 and U-28 eleven miles south of Nephi. There are several French, Latin, or Piute interpretations of the name, suggesting it means East of the Sunshine, Land of the Sunrise, Rear Rank of a Moving Army, Frontier Settlement, or Little Water. The tongue-in-cheekers say the name is a reverse spelling of Navel because *it is located in the center of the state. Several different spellings have been recorded.
