  14. I went to school with a girl called Lesley Gedge and worked with a guy called Leslie Ough. I was just musing over the name Beverley and google has this: In English the meaning of the name Beverley is: Beaver stream, from the beaver meadow. Derived from a surname and place name. First used as a boy's first name in the late 19th century, it gradually came to be used also as a girl's name, although Beverly is the more common feminine form.
