    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Mackley House in Sudbury (Derbyshire). The placename derives from an Old English personal name Macca + Old English lēah ‘wood, woodland clearing’.Probably also an Americanized form of Swiss German Mägli (see Magley ) or of some other similar (like-sounding) German surname (compare Mackler ).
