Leveson-Gower (also: Sutherland-Leveson-Gower) is the name of a powerful Scottish noble family. It is a well-known example of an English surname with counterintuitive pronunciation. The generally-accepted pronunciation is /ˈluːsən ˈɡɔər/, loosen-gore.

The name Leveson is a patronymic from Louis or Lewis. In early modern times it was often rendered Luson: for example, in 1588, Elizabeth I received a letter from the King of Denmark concerning the depradations of Walter Leveson of Lilleshall Abbey, in which he is consistently referred to as Sir Walter Luson.
