The meaning of the name Haley has two common meanings. Firstly, most people believe that Haley (pronounced as Hay-lee) is of Scandinavian origin and means "brave” and "heroic”. Others believe that Haley is of Old English origin and means "hay meadow”. The Irish and Scottish (Gaelic) meanings are slightly different with "ingenious”.

The meaning of "hay meadow” is more commonly associated with the name Hayley and was originally derived from the name of an old English town. "Hay clearing" comes from the Old English heg meaning "hay" and leah " which means clearing. Name analysers also believe that the name Haley is associated with people who are graceful and pure of spirit.

Even though Haley is pronounced the same as Hayley or Halley (two variations of Haley), not many people know that it can be used as both a boy’s name and a girl’s. It also works rather well as a last name, although the use of Haley in this way is not very common. There are also many variations of the name Haley which have grown in use over the years: Hailie, Haylee, Haleigh and Halee are just a few of the more unusual variations.

Examples of people with Haley as a first name include the actor Haley Joel Osment, the Olympic diver Haley Ishimatsu and the Olympic athlete Haley Nicole Nemra. People who use Haley as a surname include novelist Alex Haley, football player Dennis Haley and Jacki Earle Haley the actor.

If you are someone who likes to research possible names for their children then there are dozens of great books out there that will give you all the information you need such as the popularity of names over the years, origins and meanings. There are also many websites out there that you can use such as BabyNameFacts.com which will tell you all the famous people that share that name and all possible meanings of the name in different countries.
