Means either (i) "person particularly associated with a 'loveday'" (a day when, by custom, old differences were settled and reconciliations were made); or (ii) from the medieval female personal name Loveday, a descendant of Old English Lēofdæg, literally "beloved day". 'Mr Loveday's Little Outing' (1936) is a short story by Evelyn Waugh that culminates in the brief but calamitous release of a homicidal maniac from his asylum.
