Something makes me want to say that leisel, losel, etc. is a term of
affection in German. It seems like I remember something along those
lines but I searched for forms of that term in Google and couldn't find
what I was looking for. My German-Elnglish dictionary has the following.
liese -- soft, quiet, gentle.
So that makes a certain amount of sense, but it's not proof by any means.
