Bentley comes from an old Anglo-Saxon surname which refers to a particular place. In OlOldnglish, “bayonet” meant bent grass or reeds, and “lëah” meant “wood clearing or meadow”. Therefore, Bentley comes from a place that has bent grass. We can think of a few cities in England which have such characteristics, these towns include Essex, Suffolk, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, and Staffordshire. The oldest written spelling of this name can be traced back to the 12th century. This spelling in that document was “de Benetlega”.
Of course, nowadays this name is mostly associated with the luxurious Bentley cars that can be seen in Bond movies.
