English: habitational name from Huntley in Gloucestershire, from Old English hunta ‘hunter, huntsman’ (see Hunt ) + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. Occasionally the name may arise from Huntley in Staffordshire, of the same etymology, but there is no medieval evidence that this gave rise to a surname.
Scottish: habitational name from a lost place called Huntlie in Berwickshire (Borders), with the same etymology as in 1 above. Huntly in Aberdeenshire was named for a medieval Earl of Huntly who took his title from the Borders placename, and is not the source of the surname.
English: occasionally perhaps a habitational name from Huntley in Preston on Wye (Herefordshire), first recorded in 1290 as a surname, (de) Huntelaw. The placename derives from Old English hunta ‘hunter, huntsman’ + hlāw ‘mound, hill’.
