The Town Of Livingston was named after Livingston Village, West Lothian (Now on the outskirts of the town). Livingston Village gets its name from the Saxon named Leving or Leuing & from Old English tun or toun meaning settlement put them both together and you get "Levings-Toun" and as time goes by the name was slowly changed to Livingston.

When Livingston was a farming village, roads used to have toll houses on them, where carriages would pay to use the roads. these toll houses also used to sell ales and spirits for the continuing journey! Livingston New Town was the fourth of Scotland's five "New-Towns" designated under the New Towns Act of 1946.

Now here we are now with Livingston bigger and better than ever before, with one of Britain's largest combined shopping complexes and one of the best Football clubs, Livingston really is a town with a growing future. With Stirling only just beating Livingston to become the Golden Jubilee city this shows just how much potential there is for Livingston, once a new town and now just a good old but modern town still with its far too many roundabouts with residents still referring to it as their "Roundabout City".
