I see no reason to assume there is a connection just because there is
the word "North" in both phrases.

It most certainly is not.  Holly leaves are smooth, shiny, and fringed

Emma was born and grew up in Torrance, CA.  I am not sure if there is
any way to derive Leatherleaf from Torrance (which appears to be a
person's name).
