Smiley Genealogy & History

Smiley is a Scottish surname, likely brought there by an Englishman, as a close variant appears as the name of a village in Derbyshire. It comes from the Old English smael, meaning narrow, and leah, for a meadow or forest clearing. It may also originate in a medieval nickname from the Middle English smile, meaning just what it does in modern English. Smiley family history begins in 1612, when Thomas Smelie was noted as a witness in Glasgow. Some noteworthy members of Smiley genealogy are journalist Tavis Smiley, map thief Forbes Smiley, and Pirates and Reds pitcher John Smiley.
