The 'long wood' or 'clearing' is the meaning of Langly. It is a version of the Old British name 'Langley.' Although the original version is gender neutral and the most widely used, this exceptional name is traditionally given to boys. It is believed that it shares its namesake with a lakeside village. Thus anyone bearing it may have an innate respect for nature. This Anglo-Saxon name is British famous as a last name; the most famous use is of one Thomas Langley, an English prelate who held offices like Dean of York, Bishop of Durham, and twice Lord Chancellor of England under the reign of three kings.
