I have always wondered why the name Harleen was among the Top 100 names in Canada for 2004. Now, I fathom that this was the feminine variation of Harlan.

Love it! I hope it continues to be unpopular, because I am gong to name my future son this, and I want him to be the only Harlan we know.

Even though I like it I think of the song "You'll never leave Harlan alive" whenever I hear this name. I like the song though. I recently watched a commentary about Harlan in Kentucky, it's beautiful there but not a great place to live with the crime and poverty. But then again Brooklyn isn't exactly the greatest place in the world and it's a super common name. I don't know if I'd name my child Harlan though, maybe I'd use it as a middle name. But definitely a great name.

This name will always have a special place in my heart because it was my great-great-grandfather's surname. Through him, I am a distant cousin of Supreme Court Justice John Marshall Harlan.
