Comments for HADLEY:

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

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.

My mother named me Hadley after reading Ernest Hemingway's biography. His first wife's name was Hadley Richardson.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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 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. :)

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