Name Meaning

1 English: habitational name from any of the various places called Morley (for example in Cheshire, Derbyshire, County Durham, Norfolk, and West Yorkshire), or Moreleigh in Devon, all of which are named from Old English mōr ‘marsh’, ‘fen’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’.2 Possibly an altered spelling of French Morlet, a nickname from a diminutive of Old French mor ‘brown’, ‘dark’ (from Latin Maurus ‘Moor’).
