Ridley is a gender-neutral name of English origin. This is a habitational name, referring to those who lived close to features like hills, fields, streams, or types of tree. In Ridley’s case, it told of those who made their home near a reed meadow. While most commonly recognized as a surname, Ridley has great potential as a given name, thanks to its natural flair and binary-breaking style.
