Meaning:High meadow
Henleigh is a mellow-sounding, masculine name of English origin. Coming from a combination of the Old English words heah and leah, meaning “high meadow,” Henleigh—medieval in sound and meaning—might make a real historian out of your little one. Henleigh is pretty prominent in literature, too, and is most popular for its appearance in George Eliot’s 1876 novel Daniel Deronda. Quiet but calculating, a character like Eliot’s Henleigh Mallinger Grandcourt could be your inner bookworm’s beacon of inspiration!
