Origin and popularity of the name MEDLEY

Origin

Medley : English: variant of Methley a habitational name from Methley (Yorkshire). The placename may derive from Old English middel ‘middle’ replaced by the Old Norse cognate methal + Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’ or ēg ‘island’ or from Old English mǣth ‘mowing the cutting of grass or corn’ + lēah. Topography suggests that Old English middel + ēg is the most likely origin.
