Marleigh: baby girl name meaning and popularity

Marleigh

Likely from the Old English meaning "pleasant wood" - either that or from the word "mearth" meaning "marten," which is a type of animal resembling a ferret. Of the two possible meanings, the wood one is nicer but the marten one will definitely be a more apt description. At least during the toddler years.
