Please don't post repeat requests for the same information - it clutters the board and doesn't yield better results.

Wyclef is a variant spelling of Wycliffe meaning 'white cliff' or 'white bank' from the Old English hwit ('white') + clif ('cliff, bank'). Wycliffe is a placename in Durham here in England. English placenames like Devon, Wycliffe, Kelvin, Stanford, etc. have enjoyed a traditional vogue in the Caribbean.
