My name is Beverley. I've always understood that the name means "beaver meadow" as in "beaver lea", "lea" being the Old English word for meadow.

A beaver meadow, apparently is the rich field that develops from an old beaver lodge that has silted up the river so much that that part becomes a meadow.

Though now it's pretty much always feminine, this name was originally masculine. A famous male bearer was Beverley Hemings, an illegitimate son of Thomas Jefferson by his slave Sally Hemings.
