Name Meaning

English (Lancashire): habitational name chiefly from Smalley in Balderston near Blackburn (Lancashire), but occasionally from Smalley (Derbyshire) and perhaps also from Smalley in Stanley (Yorkshire). The placenames derive from Old English smæl ‘narrow, thin’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. In Scots pronunciation the surname developed to Smellie , Smillie , and Smiley .
