Blakely Name Meaning

English people loved to use someone's job, place of birth, or physical features to name him. Blakely is another example of names that refer to a place. Specifically, a few villages in Lancashire and Yorkshire (Blackley and Blakeley). These places get their name from the Old English words “blæc” (dark, burnt) and “lēah” (open field, meadow). People's homeland would become part of their identity, especially if they moved into a new place. The first recorded version of this name was 'de Blakeleye'.
