Meaning & History

This is the name of several settlements, mainly in the United States, as well as a geographical region in Yorkshire, England; in both cases, the name comes from the combination of the Middle English words cleve ("cliff") and land.

American settlements with this name were named so after people bearing the surname Cleveland, such as pioneer Benjamin Cleveland or US President Grover Cleveland. The city in Ohio was named after Moses Cleaveland; the modern spelling, influenced by The Cleveland Advertiser, first appeared in 1831.
