Morley Safer (1931-2016) was one of the correspondents on CBS’ 60 Minutes. :)
My name is Morley, and it has never, ever, ever been pronounced 'MAWR'lee, always "MORE"lee. I have so far in my life met 7 individual "Morley's" spread across 4 Canadian provinces as well as one man from Scotland, all of whom pronounce it as I do. They were all male. A 'MAWR'lee is spelled "Marley" not 'Morley' and is used as a FEMININE (mostly) given name. I have met 4 that I can recall. They were female.
There was a (female) character with this in the movie 'Valentine's Day'. I actually really like this on a boy.

Whenever I see this name I think "cigarettes" and "The X-Files", since that's the brand of cigarettes, which "The Cigarette Smoking Man (C.S.M.)/Bad Guy" smokes all through the show.
Despite that connection and how much I hate that "C.S.M." on the show, I truly love that name. Bit of an oxymoron.
This name appears to have a feminine version, Morleigh, rather like Ashleigh to Ashley, although Morley too could be unisex, like Ashley. Morleigh Steinberg is an American dancer and choreographer.
There's also a modern Hebrew (Israeli) name Morli - it's not used that often but it's unisex (means "I have myrrh", like Limor backwards). Morli also seems to be a girl's name in India (check out Facebook!)
