Personal Impression
My name is Hadleigh and I love it. Honestly, I don't think that it's terrible in any way. I know about three other kids named Hadley and they seem to love it too. It is a very strong and meaningful name, not foolish and childish in my point of view. There are a lot of nicknames for the name such as Hadi. Not ever have I met anyone who didn't say," Wow, your name is beautiful."

My daughter's name is Hadley. It is a beautiful and strong name just like she is. Her middle name is Jane after her grandmother and aunt. I think Hadley Jane is a strong southern name. My name is Haley so I guess me and Hadley will just always sound like little girls to other people, going off the previous comment.

There is a town in Massachusetts called Hadley. I kinda like Hadley for a girl. If you want it to look more feminine then maybe spell it "Hadleigh" or "Hadlea" but they kind of look ugly.

Hadley is my last name and I really never saw it as a first name until recently when a lot of close family friends started naming their kids Hadley and I love it. I also like being called Hadley by coaches and teachers and it’s very hard to misspell or pronounce.

Again, this is just another infantile, made up name.

I think this is a very pretty name. Unique and not over used.

Not sure why all the hate in using Hadley for a girl. I don't think it sounds rude or trashy at all! We named our daughter Hadlee and everyone we know seems to love it! It was the only name my husband and I could agree on. Not to mention she won't be just another Sophia or Olivia.

This is the most beautiful girl's name ever. For a boy it would be equal to naming him Elizabeth. It is definitely a girls name, plus the bonus of naming her after Hadley Richardson. On a girl beautiful, on a boy blech.

I don't like it. It sounds kind of like the name of a girl who's very rude and trashy. I actually think it sounds worse on a boy.

Boy name boy name boy name. It sounds stupid and manly on a girl. Might as well name your next daughter William.

I didn't know this was a masculine and a feminine name. I think it would fit more boys then girls, but for the right girl it would be perfect. :)

Going against the general opinion, I absolutely adore this name for a boy. I think it's so handsome and would work perfectly on a grown man, but I can't for the life of me see it working well on a grown woman.

I love this name! The first time I ever saw the name Hadley was on my way to California, there is a Hadley Farmer Market. I had no clue what it meant and to find out it means "field of heather" which is my first name I knew that if I ever have a daughter that will be her name!

It's not the worst name out there, but like Ashley and Hayley, it sounds very youthful and rather makes me think of little girls than women. The name sounds more feminine than masculine to me. It may rhyme with Bradley, but it has a much softer and more feminine sound by all means. You certainly can't get *decent* nicknames out of Hadley, so it's Hadley or nothing for me.

Love, love, love this name. It's got a strong, yet feminine sound. Can't really beat the meaning either - "field of Heather". The fact that Earnest Hemmingway's first wife was named Hadley and that his work - The Sun Also Rises - is dedicated to her won't lose any points either.

I think it's a very pleasant, bubbly name for a young girl.

I think this would make a better name for a boy. It's sort of feminine, I guess, in an Ashley sort of way, but it seems strongly, and more surnamey.

I really like this name for a girl. However, I prefer the spelling Hadleigh.

I only know one girl called Hadley. Had never heard of the name before, but when I asked my American relatives said "oh yes, it's a very New England middle class kind of name". Not sure if that image of the name is shared with the rest of the country.

Because Hadley means "a field of heather," it's a very nice name for the daughter of a Heather. I think it's an adorable yet strong name for a girl.

This just sounds like a surname. And I'd hate to be a girl named Hadley.
