There seems to be a dearth of knowledge of African names among posters to this site. I usually direct enquirers to a site that is dedicated to African names, but
a) The message board there is not operational at the moment, and
b) Every time I try to post a reply containing the site's URL, the spam filter here rejects my message.
Legesse seems to be a surname and forename (male) of the Omoro people of Ethiopia. So it should be safe to assume that it was originally the given name of a male ancestor. The meaning has not come to light
