Berkley is a masculine name of Scottish and English origin.

From the translation of “birch” combined with “woodland” or “clearing,” Berkley means “birch tree meadow.” Birch trees are stunning sights known for their thin roots and pale bark and also symbolize growth, renewal, and stability in Celtic mythology. This makes the name Berkley a wonderful way to surround baby with a feeling of safety and resilience throughout their life. If you want your bundle of joy to celebrate the beauty of nature or to find new ways to grow, naming them Berkley will make for a great start.
