Comments for HARLEY:

It's a good name! My father, born in 1917, in southeast Ohio was named Harley. His father's name was Albert and was mostly English or Scots-Irish descent.

Sort of a famous bearer, though I guess you wouldn't say "famous". Harley was the name of The Joker's assistant in one of the recent Batman cartoons (not the very new ones, but not the original, either, I don't know if she's around in all the versions or not).

As mentioned previously, Harley Quinn, the Joker's assistant in the Batman franchise. Harley originally appeared in the animated series, but she became so popular that DC gave her a place in the comics. Harley's "real name" was (Dr.) Harleen Quinzel.

She isn't really famous, but on Extreme Makeover Home Edition one family's little girl was named Harley and she was one of the cutest little kids I've ever seen.

Harley is a good name, but I would never use it for a person, as my turtle's name was Harley.

Not a particularly attractive name, male or female.

I like the name. I actually know a Harley, whose name really does not suit him at first impression, but as you get to know him it makes sense. I do think I prefer it as a name for a girl though.

When you say Harley, it sounds like you're saying holly with an American accent.

I can't get over the Harley Davidson association, and I doubt most people can. This name sounds trashy, and I can't imagine it on any self-respecting woman, or man, for that matter.

Sounds like a good name for a large dog.

First and foremost, I think this name will be forever linked to the motorcycle chain, Harley Davidson. Also, since I have only known dogs with this name, I can not imagine a person with it.
Just the other day, I was at a recital, and a guitarist on the program was named Harley. I was expecting a man, but a woman got up to play. I was shocked! I would never, ever name a child this, boy or girl.

Ugh, this name is so boggy. I know a boy with the name Harley and his parents are pretty rough 'round the edges (say no more).

I really like this name for a girl. I have chosen this name for my bunny and I spell it Harlea. To me it means "bunny sanctuary". The name fits her.

Mr. Harley Quin is Agatha Christie's favourite character, a mysterious, brilliant young man, connected with lovers or death. He is almost magical, dark, tall, and slender. I love this character (Arlecchino, as I dubbed him).

Harley the harlot. That's all I have to say. (Kids, if you don't know what that means, search it.)

I once met a girl named this, but she spelt it Harleigh. I believe this is a good feminine way to spell it, since I doubt you'll see a guy name spelt with -leigh at the end.

I like the name. At first, it makes me think of the motorcycle, which really makes little to no sense, in the meaning of the name, but I also know somebody (male) named Harley, and he's pretty much a rabbit. In terms of shyness/affectionate. Ness?

Harley is a fictional coordinator in the Pokémon anime series. He is quite flamboyant and effeminate, but also extremely arrogant and bad-tempered.
-- Wilted  2/3/2009
I hate this name. It's trashy, juvenile, and unfeminine.
-- bananarama  2/15/2009
A (kind of) famous bearer would be Harley Goldman from the webcomic Boy Meets Boy. He uses Harley as a nickname for his full name, Harlequinn. This name shall always be associated with Harley and Mik in my mind. And that isn't a necessarily bad thing.

Harley Davidson Cooper is a character on 'Guiding Light,' named after her father's favorite motorcycle.

In some ways I love this, in others I hate it. I really don't know. Better on a female anyway.
-- Anonymous User  11/24/2009
I've always found it to be a very masculine name, and I have trouble picturing it on a female (unless she's butch). It's always made me think of one of those super he-man type guys. I almost literally see a wrestler or a biker when I think about this name.
-- Black_X  2/22/2011
Nice name. For a character. I can't imagine any real person taken seriously with this name, boy or girl. It could possibly work as a middle name, if it's a family name or something, but this is one of those names to me that's reserved for fictional characters and pets only.

Harley Cross (born 1978 in New York City) is an American actor. He has a brother and sister, named Eli and Flora, who are also actors.

Harley is not a name that I would use for a person. It sounds really trendy and annoying. It looks really cute on a pet- a male pet.

I knew a friend growing up and his mum's name was Harley. It suited her well! She was the first person I ever met with this name and I like it. She is an artist (VERY good, too) and freestyle painter. The only thing about HER, NOT her name, was that she wanted me and her son, Sebastian, to get married. LOL. (We never married. Haha.)

Like many, I just can't get past the Harley-Davidson association. This is what I imagine biker dudes/chicks would name their kid.
