Hi Alan,

In my 15 or so years of researching and collating information on the Eby family, I have never run into the name spelled Alvey. Also the Abbey spelling tends to not be from the Aebi root. The spellings found by Groff and Newman when they did their extensive research were: Abey, Abee, Abi, Abie, Aby, Abye, Aebi, Aebich, Aeby, Eabi, Eaby, Eavy, Ebbe, Ebby, Ebe, Ebee, Eben, Eber, Ebey, Ebi, Ebich, Ebie, Ebig, Eby, Evi, Evie, Evy, Ewi, Ewie, Ewig, Ewy, and Uebi

You will note that none have a letter "L" included.

Cheers,
Dawn
