Origins of the Name Paisley

The name Paisley is probably derived from the Latin word basilica, meaning a major church, place of worship, or major religious center. According to Wikipedia, “In Ancient Roman architecture, a basilica was a large public building with multiple functions, typically built alongside the town’s forum…The building gave its name to the architectural form of the basilica. Originally, a basilica was an ancient Roman public building, where courts were held, as well as serving other official and public functions. Basilicas are typically rectangular buildings with a central nave flanked by two or more longitudinal aisles, with the roof at two levels.”

Churches were patterned after this architectural style, and slowly churches alone began to be called, “basilicas.” Irish monks are believed to have adopted the term basilicas and shortened it to the Irish word “baslec” which over time became “Paisley.”

Origins of the Name Paisley

The name Paisley is also of Scottish origin and comes from the Scottish town of Glasgow. The name Paisley was used as a surname here, but it would be quite some time before it became used as a first name.

In the 18th or 19th century, patterned fabric with teardrop shapes and floral-like patterns surfaced in India. Though it’s believed to have originated in Persia, it was India that exported paisley shawls to Europe where it became popular. This is where the word paisley began to be associated with a pattern.

According to the social security administration, Paisley didn’t begin to show up until 2006 making it a modern name. Paisley is usually a popular girl’s name but is known in Scotland to be a unisex or gender-neutral name. In 2013, Paisley was a very popular baby name making it to the top 100. It made its peak of most popular names in 2015 and slowly has declined since. It also makes the list of popular middle names.
