Actually i am a history teacher in Michigan, and the name GAZLEY comes from the word GAZLE or GAZEL an Arabic word used in Turkey and IRan for a Poem about love and Beauty. It is a Turkish name before it ever came to France, must have been taken by someone who came to Europe
From Turkey and changed it to a French spelling , later an English one. Just wanted everyone to know. Vicki Lynn Gazley age 25
