    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of the three places called Hurley (Somerset, Warwickshire, Berkshire). The Warwickshire and Berkshire placenames derive from Old English hyrne ‘angle, corner’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. The Somerset placename, for a minor place near Crowcombe, may have the same origin but this cannot be certain due to a lack of medieval forms.

    Irish (Munster): Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hUrthuile ‘descendant of Urthuile’, a personal name possibly meaning ‘great flood’.

    Irish: variant of Herlihy .
