Meaning:Oak meadow
Ackley is one of those names that just feels more suitable for period dramas. Very English and quite formal in its sound, none can deny the stately feel it has got. Its meaning, “oak meadow,” only adds to this mental picture! As a habitational name meant to refer to someone living in a clearing surrounded by oak trees, the chances of Ackley being related to the village of Acle in Norfolk and Akeley in Buckinghamshire are high. While you may not hail from either region, you can definitely go with this moniker if you’d like your little one to grow up to be an upstanding person, with an oak-like resilience and strength.
