Meaning:Settlement, clearing, woodland; Burnt clearing
Tenley is a girl’s name of Old English origin. Taken from the Old English terms tun, meaning “settlement,” and leah, meaning “woodland” or “clearing,” Tenley might pique the interest of parents with a heart for history. The name Tenley is also said to refer to a “burnt clearing,” so if baby’s got a fire in their belly for something, a name like Tenley is one way to behold all their burning desires. Big fans of The Bachelor will also love Tenley for its connections to American dancer Tenley Molzahn Leopold, who appeared on the show’s 14th season.
