Meaning:from the red field, red meadow
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,” and was a habitational name given to people “from the red field.” 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 he will carry on this place name and imbue it with his own, unique legacy throughout his life.
