I named my daughter Hailey. I liked this because I have heard of other Haileys but not this spelling too often.

I love the name Hailey. This is my favorite spelling of it. I know of one Hailey and she is spunky, funny and full of life.

Hailey is an awesome name for a girl, I wish it was my name.

Quite possibly the worst name ever. Mostly because I am constantly correcting people so they won't pronounce my name like this one or like Haley. It's gets tiring after 25 years.

On the O.C., Hailey is Kirsten's sister, played by Amanda Righetti.

This is a wonderful name. There are numerous alternative spellings as well.
Emma McHnery  12/3/2006
I love the name Hailey. Years ago when my husband and I were teenagers we said that if we ever had a liitle girl we would name her Hailey. May 2004 we welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world, yes we named her Hailey.

My name is Hailey and I like it. It's unique but yet common and people don't find it hard to pronounce.

Utterly stupid name, trendy, shallow and dumb. Stripper name.
johann14  9/25/2007
I never liked this name. No offense but it sounds like a pet's name. And its meaning is rather dumb.

Hailey is a beautiful name for a girl. It is elegant and pretty. And the Hailey's I know are just that; beautiful, spunky, and fun. A lot of the girls names today are so plain, this one still has life.
macgirl  11/8/2007
A beautiful girl's name, I picture a pretty girl with a lot of life.

This is my name. And here are some reflections for people thinking of naming their kids this.

1. Everyone spells it wrong!
2. A lot of people pronounce it badly 'hay UH lee' it sounds kind of phlegmy!
3. I spent years at highschool being greeted with "Hey Hai!"

Don't do it folks!
tradingnames  4/8/2008
This is my name, and I pretty much hate it. Everybody spells it wrong. If you're going to name your child Hailey, leave out the "i", because everyone else will when they attempt to spell it.
― Anonymous User  7/21/2008
This name is childish and overused. I don't like the "hay" sound. Why do people like this name so much? You can't go anywhere without running into at least five Haileys.
bananarama  9/20/2008
This name reminds me of a hail storm. Out of all the pretty names out there why name your daughter Hailey? It's so ugly, weird, silly and I find no femininity to it.
― Anonymous User  12/4/2008
My best friend has this name, and so does another close friend. Which is really cool because my name is Bailey, so it's Hailey and Bailey! I think this name is very pretty, but very plain. I've seen "Haley" but that's the name of our current (male) governor, so I personally think that "Haley" is more masculine and I prefer this spelling (Hailey).
baileymarissa  12/8/2008
I feel like I am in the minority here but I honestly think this is an ugly name. Hayley, Haley, Hailey, any spelling is unappealing to me, though I think Hailey is the worst. I don't like the sound, the long a and long e don't sound good together, in my opinion.
emmiix3  2/7/2009
I agree that this name is ugly! It's not really pretty, no good nicknames, sounds like it belongs to a horse rather than a human. Just pointing that out. It's my opinion, that's all.
― Anonymous User  6/7/2009
Hailey IS an ugly name! It's way too common and I think of chickens whenever anyone says it. I can't stand this name!
RikuLoverKH10  7/16/2009
Hailey's my name. I can't say I really like it. People always misspell it. I've met a handful of other people with my name too. If you want to name your kid Hailey, or a form of it, go with Haley because no one misspells that.
― Anonymous User  8/20/2009
My name is Hailey. Personally I don't care much for it, I don't like the hay part. But I can sort of understand why people would like it and I liked reading all your positive comments about it.
My mom said she picked the spelling Hailey because of hail, as in adore or worship. I always thought that was cool.
haileyrose  10/6/2010
I absolutely LOVE this name! I love the way it sounds and looks. I don't like the spellings Haley, Haylie, Hayley, etc., just Hailey. I think it's so pretty!
Joy12  4/17/2011
I really like this name, one of my best friends name as well. She spells it Haileigh. I like the speling Haylee the best but either way I think the name sounds great! If I didn't know her well I would always pronounce the "eigh" as "ay" like hailay.
rhysse  11/12/2011
@rhysse just to clarify, "eigh" and "ay" are the exact same phoneme. In other words, they sound exactly the same. Everyone on here talking about pronunciation is wildly incorrect. I quote from Billy Madison...

"what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
Jszhluz  9/21/2016
This is an okay name. WAAAAAAY too popular and overused, though. It isn't good enough to be as common as it is, I think. I like it spelled Haylea.
Justine_Adrian  12/7/2011
This is my name. However, I pronounce it HAIL-EY. I constantly correct people because they say HAY-LEY. And it really annoys me when they do that. Just think of saying hail (like the weather) and than Lee. It's not that hard, people. Also, the meaning of the name is wrong. The meaning is different for each spelling.
― Anonymous User  10/29/2014
I much prefer this spelling over any other with this name.
― Anonymous User  11/20/2014
My name is Hailey... the meaning of it could also be 'feild of hay' as well as other things, but that by far is my favorite.
― Anonymous User  2/4/2015
In Old English, Hailey meant "Hayfield", or "Haystack".
hailhero  3/14/2015
My name is Hailey and I used to hate it when I was younger. Im 13 now and it probably wasn't until last year that I actually learned to love my name and that's when I heard people I cared about saying it over and over again. I would love it if it could be spelled "Haylee" THAT would be cool, but I honestly love my name and couldn't imagine myself as anything else anymore.
haileeyy13  4/13/2015
Such a gross, disgusting name. Why would someone give their child a stripper name? It makes me think of chickens every time I hear it. More like a pet's name than a human's. How pathetic.
briannamaepohl  5/18/2015
I read a comment about someone saying it reminded them of a hail storm. Just wanted to say don't name your child Hailey Storms. They will have a life of being made fun of when it hails. Other than that, I love my name!
haileystorm96  6/29/2015
One of my best friend's name is Hailey. She said she gets annoyed when people pronounce it HAY-lee, because it's supposed to be HALE-ee, with the first syllable rhyming with "bail." It's a cool name.
actingfun  8/23/2015
How is this a stripper's name? Stripper names are like are like Anastasia or Persia. I think it is a beautiful and poetic name. The ratio of vowels to consonants is perfect. Love this name!
bananathong  9/26/2015
Why classify all Hailey's in a group calling them all strippers and ugly? Like seriously! My best friend's name is Hailey and she took this seriously and she got really sad and felt ugly. So just because you don't like this name or if it reminded you of someone bad just keep it to yourself!
― Anonymous User  10/23/2015
Hailey is my actual name and I love my name! It does get annoying when people misspell it but you can misspell about every name! It's also not a strippers name. I don't know why you would even think that! I believe that it's a very pretty name and some people only say that because they may know one Hailey that was a bad person or was a good person but just broke up with them so if your name is Hailey like mine, don't take it to heart, you're beautiful!
hailey.rhodes13  10/23/2015
This is my favorite spelling of this name. It's adorable! Fun fact: I went to kindergarten with two Haileys.
thenamer007  12/17/2015
I have a 7-year-old cousin with this name, and she's the most selfish spoiled brat I know. That's why I hate this name.
TyrannosaurusRegina  1/11/2016
I love this name so much. Everyone I know says it's unique so I don't care if people don't like it because they are so jealous they don't have such a pretty name. I am happy my parents named me this though I took it for granted a lot because I hated when people made fun of it. I found it was a pretty name to name your little girl (so parents please do name your kids this- they will thank you in the long run)!
― Anonymous User  2/7/2016
Hailey is a beautiful name that makes me think of an angel with a halo.
Maryrey  2/9/2016
I love this name. I find it very beautiful and unique. I enjoy this spelling of the name: Hailey, as I find it very elegant and classy.
― Anonymous User  3/30/2016
I have a best friend named Hailey and she is funny, but I can understand someone spelling it wrong or saying it wrong like HI-lee or HAI-lee.
LilyLol  5/6/2016
I don't like this name, it's so trashy and it's becoming popular recently. Please avoid this awful name!
― Anonymous User  6/29/2016
Such a childish name. Any name that has the 'e' sound at the end is childish in my opinion.
Luvbug86  8/7/2016
I like the name Hailey. I think it's beautiful. I also think it's kinda funny when people say Hey-Lee. I don't care that people spell it wrong, you could just tell them there is an I.
Hderbas  8/17/2016
This is my favorite spelling variation of this particular name. I doubt I would ever use it but if I did, I would, without a doubt, use this spelling.

Tons of names end in that "EE" sound, many of them excellent names.
― Anonymous User  9/29/2016
This spelling is originally an Irish surname. And nothing whatever to do with the hay field or meadow or the first name of mainland Britain.

It is from NW Ireland, county Sligo and was most likely from the ancient name ohealaighthe meaning ingenious or perhaps also oheilidhe meaning claimant.

Modern variations of this name are Haly, Haley, Hely, Healy, Healey, O'Healey, O'Haly... etc.

I am the original Hailey (unless you know any Haileys born pre- 1976) because I was named directly from this family name, for my first name.

So in short, Hailey means ingenious.
haileyb  8/24/2017
Also, we pronounce it hAl-i. Like no stressed syllables and barely the tiniest I sound at the end that I wouldn't even call a syllable at all just an exhalation. Please DON'T call me HaIy-Leayy [high; lie] Or HaI-leEE [HAY; Lee]
haileyb  8/24/2017
My name is Hailey and nobody ever knows how to spell it right. They always spell it Hayley or Haley. Any time I go somewhere and I want like a bracelet or necklace with my name on it, it is never spelled right. I know many people with that name at my school and they all spell it differently. No one spells it like me, which is cool so it's original. I know people that spell it these ways: Hayley, Haley, Haileigh, and Haylee. I think they are all pretty unique in their own way.
HaileyBreitenkamp  12/12/2017
I love the name Hailey. I have a niece named Hailey & we call her Hail often. It suits her. I didn’t think I would like the name Hailey because it’s so popular & I grew up with many Hailey’s I was not a fan of. But now I think the name is more sophisticated & is cute when she’s a baby but mature when she is an adult!
