The Leitha ; Czech and Slovak: Litava) is a river in Austria and Hungary, a right tributary of the Danube.
The Lithaha River in the Carolingian Avar March was first mentioned in an 833 deed issued by Louis the German, son of the Carolingian emperor Louis the Pious and ruler over the stem duchy of Bavaria. The Old High German name lît probably referred to a Pannonian denotation for "mud", as maintained in the former Hungarian name Sár .
