Name: dale Origin: English,, Meaning (no case): valley



Dale was a surname that, starting in the mid-19th century, is often used as a first name. [1]

Also from the Old English dæl, or dalan "valley," possibly preserved in the north of England by a Norse inflection similar to the word used as a verb for "bow" – such as a bend in the ground. [1]
