Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the places called Bickley, in Worcestershire, Cheshire, and Kent, or Bickleigh in Devon, all of which are possibly named with an Old English personal name Bicca + Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’. The first element could alternatively be an Old English word, bic ‘pointed ridge’.
