Comments for HALEY:

This name can also mean 'hero' from Scandinavian origins.

No, that is very incorrect information. Haley/Hayley's correct meaning is "hay-clearing" from the English surname. I don't know what Scandinavian name you are referring to.

Yes, Haley does mean heroine in the female usage, and hero in the male usage. My name is Haley and I love my name.

A famous bearer of this name is male actor Haley Joel Osment.

Just look 'Haley' up on Google. It says it means 'hero'.

Haley can be a boys' name, but I don't think it sounds good for a boy. My sister's name is Hali (pronounced like Haley). I've found it in the Bible - Joshua 19:25. I've seen many different meanings for this name in various name books and websites: "meadow of hay", "sea", "hero(ine)", "victorious woman" and "ingenious".

My name is Haley and I did research on my name and it said it meant 'hero'.
-- happyhaley05  11/1/2005
Hayley means "Meadow of hay," Haley means "Hero," as does Hailey. Hali means "sea", Hallie means "clearing of hay". It all depends on the spelling.

Though in modern times Haley would almost always be a variation of Hayley, it was occasionally used as a pet form of Mahala back in the 19th century USA.

I just love this name but prefer the spelling Hailey.

I don't understand how anyone can like one name over the other because Hayley, Haley, Hailey and Hallie are all DIFFERENT names. Some may be pronounced similarly but seriously, you can't ignore the "Y" in the "original." It adds a different sound, completely. I wish people would get that. You don't like one spelling over the other. You like a totally different name, altogether. Without the "hay," there is no "hay" field from the original so any name without the "Y" can't truly be of the same origin. Every other variation should stick to the "hero" thing because it makes more sense.

Can also be pronounced: HA-lee.

This is my little sister's name. It's also probably one of the most popular last names in the town I live in, and yes, all the Haley's are related. Well, my sister's not, but the ones with the surname Haley are. Seeing as it's my sister's name and she's a pain in the behind I hate this name. But, on the other hand, it's the last name of one of my best friends, so while I could never use it, it does have some good connotations for me.

Somebody I know pronounces it like Holly.
-- libbygirl  9/25/2006
I like it better spelled Hayli. My friend spells it that way and I think it totally fits her.
-- gym4god  2/5/2007
My impression of this name is that it is the most awesome name on earth.
-- scottsbiggestfan  5/26/2007
There's this wonderful singer from New Zealand, Haley Westenra (I'm not sure if I spelt it right)

I named my daughter Haley Alyse. I think Haley is a beautiful name. It writes beautifully, it is soft and feminine and when I think of my daughter as an adult I see a classy, sweet woman that is also witty and charming - a joy to be in her presence. Haley means hero and I think that should make anyone with the name Haley proud. I do not like this name for a boy at all. I have a few nicknames for my daughter associated with her name - My little Halo (because we wanted her for so long and she is a gift from Heaven) and Haley-Bug (because she is petite and small) are the ones I use most often. I think this name is lovely. I also love that it begins with an H like my name (Heather). My husband and son chose this name for my daughter and because it is a name I have loved all my life, I instantly agreed. Blessings!

My name is Haley and I'm glad my name meaning means 'hero.'
-- aquaspirit96  9/26/2007
This is my name, but I don't particularly like it. I never got made fun of or anything, but it was just so unusual in my year. It's fine for a middle name, maybe in something like Elizabeth Haley or Kaitlyn Haley, but not so great as a first name.
-- Anonymous User  12/1/2007
This is my name, and I really like it. It sounds soft and pretty, but not too feminine. I hate when people spell it wrong, however. There are five Haleys in my grade, two Haileys, two Haleys, and one Hayley.
-- Wilted  12/8/2007
This is my name. People ALWAYS pronounce it HA-lee, like you should with the name Hale, or Hail-ee, but the way I pronounce it is HAY-lee. Because of all the problems with mispronunciation, I really am not a fan of my name.
-- mistyluv4ever  12/22/2007
My name is spelled Haley but so many people misspell and say it wrong. I love my name but I don't understand why so many people get it wrong and why they can't say it right.
-- Anonymous User  3/4/2008
My best friend's name is Haley. She has a bunch of nicknames: Hay, HayHay, Haleybug (which her mom shortens to just Bug). And more. Her name fits her because she is kind of preppy, but I wouldn't stereotype another Haley because of her name. It could fit anyone. Overall a great name, and I prefer this spelling. It's the simplest.
-- SummerSerenades  12/30/2009
I personally love this name, mostly cause it's my name. I like this spelling compared to most ways of spelling it mostly cause it's simple. People used to always mistake it for Ha-lee and people always spell it wrong but I have learned to put that aside. Some nicknames I get are Hay-Hay and Haley-Bailey. I love my name!
-- Anonymous User  8/14/2010
I really hate this name, it is used way too often, plus I know a Haley (actually I know 4, all spelled differently) and she is the only person in the world I can't get along with.

I think the name is cool. But, other spellings are:
Hayley
Hailee
Haylee
Hailey
Halee
Halie
Haylie
Hailie I have seen most of these variations!
-- SEC908  10/6/2012
I don't like this name at all. It's better spelled Haylee, but I still don't like the name.
-- Cassidy_  3/5/2014
This is my name. I really actually do like it. I can't say I adore it but I definitely don't hate it. The only thing I dislike about it is it's spelling. I don't really like any spellings of Haley for some reason, but my parents wanted to give me what they thought was the easiest spelling and this was also the most popular spelling for the year I was born so I guess that's okay.
