Family name origins & meanings:
- English : habitational name from a place in Gloucestershire, so named from Old English hunta ‘hunter’ (perhaps a byname (see Hunt) + lēah ‘wood’, ‘clearing’).
- Scottish : habitational name from a lost place called Huntlie in Berwickshire (Borders), with the same etymology as in 1. Huntly in Aberdeenshire was named for a medieval Earl of Huntly (who took his title from the Borders place); it is not the source of the surname.
