Name Meaning

1 English: habitational name from any of various places in England so named, especially the one in Northumberland, which, like that in Cheshire, is derived from Old English geryd ‘channel’ + lēah ‘wood’, ‘clearing’. Those in Essex and Kent appear in Domesday Book as Retleia and Redlege respectively, and get their names from Old English hrēod ‘reed’ + lēah.2 Possibly also an altered spelling of German Riedel or Riedler ( see Ridler ).
