    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Jewish Dror, Yakov, Hyman, Yitzchok, Zalmon.

    English (mainly Yorkshire): from a lost or unidentified place in Lancashire or Yorkshire, apparently named with Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’ as the final element. Compare Paley Green in Giggleswick (Yorkshire), where the surname is recorded in 1379, but this may have been named from the surname.

    English: perhaps from a presumed Middle English male personal name Palli (Old Danish Palli, from páll ‘pole’).
