LEKA.  Pet form of Albanian Aleksandër (q.v.), meaning "defender of men." 

... The Mirdites are noted for fealty to their Catholic faith and loyalty to the Sultan... This tribe represents the best elements of the Albanian nation and of the Catholics.  The Mirdites claim descent from the early Dukajin tribe, whose chief, Leka, gave the famous code that regulates the blood-feud, or vendetta, which is still adhered to by Christian and Mohammedan alike.
