BAIL(L)

This name derives from the Middle English “baili”, meaning “bailiff, to deliver”. Firstly it can be an occupational name for a steward or official from the Old French "baillis" or "bailif", and middle English "bail(l)". The word survives in Scotland as "bailie", the title of a municipal magistrate, but in England has developed into "bailiff", an officer of the court. Bailey is the 65th-most common surname in the United Kingdom.
