Ansley Name Meaning
English: habitational name from such places as Ansley in Warwickshire or Annesley in Nottinghamshire. The former is named with Old English ansetl ‘hermitage’ + leah ‘woodland clearing’; the latter with an Old English personal name An (‘the solitary one’) + leah. In some cases the American surname may be a respelling of Scottish Ainslie.
