Badley Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Badley family name include Baddely, Baddeley, Baddiley, Badley, Badly, Badely, Badgely, Badlely and many more.
