Meaning of this name is unknown.

Matthias Cleef says: Dear Sir, the origin of the name is Dutch or stemming from a german dialect spoken in the lower rhine area. It is connected to the english word "cliff" both phonetically and in meaning. The meaning is "hill", "steep slope". E. g. the city of Kleve (dutch spelling: Kleef; ancient spelling: Cleef) in Germany is situated on a ridge. The habit of naming people after geographical sites is Celtic in origin.
O van cleef says: Originaly from Kleve
