Vigdis, thanks for the better site you now offer but I already knew it and thought the question was inappropiate there because Olney and Olla are both names, not surnames. (Couldn't post where it was appropiate because something has gone wrong with the thread)
Previously I had posted:
I thought the name "Olney" meant "old"-"ney" where "ney" sounded to me like some affix I had seen before but who's meaning I could not remember, however I'm searching and finding it may mean "lone/solitary/single clearing/glade" or "Olla's island" in Old English... But I need to know the meaning of the name "Olla" which I guessed could be a variant of Olaf or mean "wool" according to some source... But which I dont trully know what it means... Anyone has an answer?
Searching the database many names end in "ney" and the closest "ney" has got to a meaning of its own is "new" or "island"... "Old new" is really meaningless... "Old island" is more meaningful...
