the meaning of the name akerley

i would love to learn the country of origin and meaning of the name "akerley" which so many of us share. i've been told that it's welsh, and i've been told that it's german. in both cases i was told that it has an agricultural meaning, specifically, "ley" meaning pasture, and "aker" perhaps relating to acre. (however, i consider both of these sources questionable). if anyone has reliable information, i sure would love to hear it!
