Thread Name: Origin: Sally Gardens
Subject: RE: Origin: Sally Gardens
Maybe older names from the 'Celtic' Britons who were conquered by the Romans and then by the Saxons and Normans but many of whose placenames live on.

Sally is much more likely to have come from the Latin for willow, salix. The botanical name for the Weeping Willow is IIRC Salix Salix.
