Etymology

Levent is also name for men in Turkey that derive from Levend, type of soldier of the Ottoman Navy. Levend itself is derived from Levantino, which means Person from Levant in Italian. This was how Italians used to call Ottoman sailors, name which was also adopted by Ottoman Turks. The use of the word Levend for describing seamen first appeared in the Ottoman Turkish language during the 16 century. These marine soldiers had a reputation for possessing strong, muscular physiques and daring, fearless characters; which is the reason why the Turkish word Levent, its Greek cognate leventi and its Bulgarian cognate Levent are still popularly used for defining athletic, gallant, brave men. The name Levent come to apply to the neighbourhood because in 1780 Ottoman Fleet Admiral Cezayirli Gazi Hasan Pasha was awarded farmland here by Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid I; and in the early 19th century, a military compound was built in the area of this farm. Nearby Istinye neighbourhood on the European shoreline of Bosphorus also features an important shipyard and dock for maintaining and repairing military vessels of the Ottoman Navy. However, Imperial Arsenal and Naval Ministry of Ottoman Navy were located on the shores of the Golden Horn.
