Insley Name Meaning
English (Midlands): habitational name from an unidentified place, most probably in Staffordshire. It may be from a lost place named in Old English as Inesleah, the first element being the Old English personal name Ine + Old English leah ‘woodland clearing’. Alternatively, it could be a variant of the Devon name Endsley, although the distribution makes this unlikely.
