If the hills have Dales, then who is the Villain?

Ville (French pronunciation: ?[vil]) is the modern French word of Latin
origin now meaning "city" or "town", but the first meaning in the
middle-ages was "farm" (from Gallo-Romance VILLA < Latin villa rustica) and
then "village". The derivative suffix -ville is commonly used in English in
names of cities, towns and villages.

Derived words
Hooverville - an area where homeless people generally lived during the
Great Depression.
Village - another loanword from French used for a settlement that was
larger than a hamlet but smaller than a town.
villain - feudal serf, peasant cultivator in subjection to a lord.
villein - the same word used by modern historians.

Dale Early Origins

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system
of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found
in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name
Dale were recorded, including Dale, Daile, Dales, Dayle, Daele and others.

First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient
times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke
William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
