Origin:British
Popularity:1110
Meaning:Hugh's meadow
Huxley is a boy's name of English origin, widely translated as "Hugh's meadow." Born a genteel surname with some pedigree attached, Huxley is habitual in nature, referring to the original family's estate in Cheshire. Likely the fusing of the name Hucc and the Old English word leah, meaning "clearing," this ancient title whispers of open spaces and possibilities. With untamed wilds and refinement wrapped up in two syllables, there is no better encouragement for baby to venture down the beaten track in pursuit of unclaimed riches.
