Name Meaning

English (West Midlands): habitational name of uncertain origin: probably from a lost settlement called Buddeley in Tabley Superior, Cheshire. Another possibility is Budleigh in Devon (Bodelie in Domesday Book), named with Old English budda ‘beetle’ (or the same word used as a byname) + lēah ‘woodland clearing’.
