huntly M

old english (anglo-saxon)
HUNTA LēAH > HUNTELEI

This name is a medieval locational name of English and Scottish (Gaelic) origin. The name is composed of two Old English (Anglo-Saxon) elements: “hunta” (hunt-er) plus “lēah” (woodland, a clearing “especially one used for farming”, a meadow). The second element of the name could be derived from the Latin "vallis" which means (valley, the earth, the world). The place in Gloucestershire was first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Huntelei", and means the hunter's wood.
