Winkley Name Meaning

English: habitational name, perhaps from Winkleigh in Devon, named with an unattested Old English personal name Wineca + leah ‘woodland clearing’. However, the modern surname occurs chiefly in South Yorkshire and Lancashire, which suggests that another, unidentified source may be involved. Americanized form of German Winkele.
