Bagley Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the places so called, mainly in Berkshire, Shropshire, Somerset, and West Yorkshire. These get their names either from the Old English personal name Bacga + Old English leah ‘woodland clearing’ or from an unattested Old English word, bagga, for a ‘bag-shaped’ animal (probably the badger) + leah.
