Expecting a girl in January 2016 and we're calling her Hadley Megan. My fianc? and I are huge Ernest Hemingway fans so his first wife's name'seemed a natural and meaningful fit. The Megan part is after his (my fianc?'s) grandmother. Being from the UK, there Isn't really many people with Hadley as a first name. It's more common as a surname. But I love it! It's strong and when'teamed with a girly middle name it becomes really feminine. We've had so many compliments already and she's not even here yet!

My name is heather Nichole(meaning "a flower")so when I got pregnant and found out I was having a girl I decided I wanted to name her after me. I was searching and searching for the perfect name and picked out 3 or 4 names that'started with an H that I liked(one of them being hadleigh). So then I looked at their meanings and when I saw that hadleigh meant "a field of heather" I knew that was the perfect name. So her name is hadleigh Nichole I am so proud of her name and it means a lot to me.

We had a baby girl last week and decided upon this name as I am half French and wanted to pass on some French heritage to our child. It is also my French grandmother's name. I know that'she will experience some problems with people not being able to spell or pronounce her name properly, but I have also been down that route with a French name and have never had a problem. It's good to use some of these less obvious names!

I am pregnant with our fourth child, third girl in a row. The other girls are named Lillian Fae and Emma Louise. We are seriously considering naming this baby Hadley Christine. We LOVE it, but we are running into a bit of a glitch. My maiden name is Hadley and we are worried that our family or friends who knew me prior to our marriage will think It's too much of a stretch since they are already familiar with it as a surname. We would love to name her Hadley, but I feel slightly self-conscious about it, like the family won't ever be ab;e to separate it from LONG historical family surname to our daughter's name. Any input would be cher'shed!!!

My name is Hadley. I was born in 1991, and I was named aftr a town in England. My parents lived in England for a year in 1989 or 1990(I can't remember which year it was. It was one of the two), and they passed through a town called "Hadleigh", and my mother decided that if she ever had a little girl, she would give it that name. My parents did have a daughter(me!), and my mother changed the'spelling from "Hadleigh" to "Hadley". When I was younger, I used to not like my name, because it is so unusual. I was tthe only "Hadley" in all of my classes, until high school Algebra II, when'there was another girl in the class named, "Hadley". That is the only time that I ever had to be referred to as "Hadley" and then'th first initail of my last name. I have heard of a few other "Hadleys" in my life, but not that many, maybe three or four, including myself. I like my name now, because ?I get lots of compliments on it. People say, "Oh, is that your name, I love it"! People often ask me if it is a family name, to which I explain to them how I got my name. I hope that the name "Hadley" desn't become popular like that name "Emily". There are oodles and oodles of girls named, Emily, and I would not want lots and lots of girls named "Hadley", because is IS such a unique name, and you don't hear it very often, at least, I don't. :)

My name is Hadley Elizabeth, I'm 40, and named after Ernest Hemmingway's first wife. It's sometimes confused for a male name'so I often include my middle name. When I was a kid I wished I could find things with my name on it but obviously not an issue once I grew up. It's easy to pronounce when It's read, but people don't often listen and hear all sorts if other names when I speak. Doesn't bother me, I like the uniqueness and that It'sounds strong. Hadleigh seems like a more feminine way of spelling it, but loses the unisex nature.

I named my daughter Hadley 28 years ago. I still adore this name and she does too. Mostly everyone tells her what a beautiful name it is. When she was little, people would ask her name and after'she replied, they'd say Cathy? Natalee? At three she would spell her name for them and say she was named after Hemingway's first wife's first name. Pretty funny at the time.

I knew that would be my daughters name. However I had a boy and not gonna lie was pretty diapointed. I waited over 4 years to even considering for a girl. Then we randomly got pregnant. I instantly knew it was a girl....told everyone. We never found out but I would talk to her and call her Hadleigh. We named her Hadleigh Tayla.I think its gorgeous!!!

I love this name! We named our daughter Hadlee Elyse. She is now 6 months old and we love it more and more. We get a lot of mixed responses... Most people say they love it and some just say, "that's different" which is fine because that's what we were going for. I see it being very feminine, not masculine at all. I love it!

I named my daughter Hadlie Kate. I think is a little more feminine way to spell it. Either way is cute. Sometimes I'm a little self conscious about telling people her name, though, because people seem to love it or REALLY hate it.

My daughter's name is Hadley-(pronounced Had-lee). Many people have not heard of it before, but they find it very easy to spell and pronounce once It's explained once. I have heard of only two other girls in our city with the name. I haven't heard of any boys with the name.

My daughter's name is Hadley Caroline. We love it because It's original. It is a family name for us, so it has significance. Some negatives if your're considering it: kids often call my daughter Had-a-lee and that bothe's her and older people tend to call her Hailey. My daughter also just told me she has an issue w/ it because It's not on "anything" because It's "rare". I know as she ages, she will appreciate it. As for now, we'll just have to order'stuff personalized and apologize when she can't buy a pencil w/ her name preprinted on it or a license plate off one of those turning displays at a store.

My name is Hadley and when introducing myself I almost always get the response, "excuse me?" or "what is your name again?" it can get annoying sometimes, but other times It's rather funny. When leaving my name for reservations at restaurants I usually just go by Judy to make things easier. Occasionally, however, I will use my actual name and i've gotten some inter'sting alternatives. Once, at Chins, I told them my name and on the receipt they wrote down Addly. Another time, at the'same restaurant, they put down Kathy. On a trophy I got from a soccer tournament I once got Hudley. I actually pronounce my name just Had-Lee (I simply can't understand why people find It'so hard to say, but then again i've been living with it all my life and some people have never even heard it) i've never met anyone with my name although i've heard of several people who share my name. My parents got the idea for my name from Ernest Hemingway's first wife. I used to really hate my name, but now I think I appreciate it more. It doesn't come with the best nicknames (examples: Haddles-which I hate and Hads-not so bad) but It's unusual and it fits.

My husband and I picked this name for a girl if that's what we end up having. We both love Key West and since Ernest Hemingway has a home there and his first wife's name was Hadley it is very be-fitting. We have a tradition in the family of girls names beginning with the letter "H" and this was different and we love it. It's a name that has to grow on people but I haven't heard anyone say that they don't like it. I highly recommend this name! Especially if there is also a brother in the mix with the name of Hayden.

With respect to the'struggles of me and my brethren, I LOVE the name Hadley. I have grown up spending my summers in the Adirondacks, at our family property on the'sacandaga lake. Needless to say, it is so remote there Isn't even cell phone service - but it is incredibly beautiful and my favorite place in the world.
