Does the name Leslie have an Irish form?

This site http://www.irishidentity.com/names/l.htm lists it as “Leaslaoi” (pronounced similarly to Leslie, assuming you are saying a hard ‘s’ and not ‘z’, as is the pronunciation for most girls who use the name).  I am not sure how authentic this is.  Doing a Google search for it, I see a bunch of women using it (despite it being listed under the “boys” name section of that site).  So it looks like it is in use and is probably the best you’re going to get, but someone else may chime in with a contribution to correct or amend my answer.
