    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of several places, probably so named from Old English denu ‘valley’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. It may well be an altered form of Delly End in Oxfordshire (recorded as Denleghe in 1316) or from Denly Hill in Kent. Alternatively, the name may be derived from Dunley House in Devon, from the Old English personal name Dunna or Dūna + lēah.
