Tinsley: baby girl name meaning and popularity


Perhaps a derivative of the surname Tinley, meaning "town clearing" - the "-ley" suffix indicated a clearing or meadow in Old English. If someone wanted to stick an S in there and change things up, who are we to judge? Maybe they just wanted to pluralize and mean ALL the towns instead of just one. Because your little Tinsley is gonna be sooo cosmopolitan.
