    Name Meaning

    English (mainly West Midlands): habitational name from either of three places called Hadley, in Worcestershire and Shropshire, or from either of two places called Hadleigh, in Essex and Suffolk, or Monken Hadley in Middlesex. The first is named from the Old English personal name Hadda + lēah ‘wood, (woodland) clearing’; the others are from Old English hǣth ‘heathland, heather’ + lēah.

    In some cases also Native American (Navajo): variant of Hatathlie ‘singer (i.e. medicine man)’. Compare Singer 5.
