Name Meaning

English (West Midlands): habitational name from Moseley by Birmingham (Worcestershire) or, less probably, from Moseley near Worcester (Worcestershire) or Moseley in West Dean (Gloucestershire). Moseley by Birmingham probably takes its name from an Old English personal name Mūsa or Old English mūs ‘mouse’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. The other placenames derive from Old English mos ‘moss, bog’ + lēah.
