Radley is a British boy’s name that finds its roots in the pastoral landscape of Ancient Britain. The name derives from the Old English word redleah, meaning “red meadow” or “woodland clearing.” It was a habitational name given to people who lived near a “meadow of reeds” or a “reed stream.” This image evokes images of rolling English fields ablaze with scarlet heather, and raises questions about the lives of the people who inhabited this magical landscape. Baby Radley may not be from the red field, but baby will carry on this place name and imbue it with their own, unique legacy throughout their life.
