Presley Name Meaning

Presley is the transferred use of an Anglo-Saxon surname originating as a topographical name for someone who lived near Wood or cleared a priest. Elements of the surname come from the Olde English words 'preost', meaning 'priest' and 'Leah', meaning 'wood, clearing'. In other words, this surname would have been developed to signify a person who resided near property belonging to the Church. As a given name, Presley has been mostly restricted to the United States in modern times, and usually for girls.

yeah, i'm having a girl and we've decided on Presley, so I'm glad to see others on here see it more as a girl's name than that of a boy.

I love this name for my little girl. Her name is Preslee Elizabeth. I changed it to Preslee because I didn't want to have the people asking me if I was a big Elvis fan. I also wanted her name to be a lil different since my name is oh so common.

I live in dallas and we named our baby girl Presley! It sounds more like a girl name to me I couldn't imagine a lil boy named presley.

09/04/2022 16:23:50

I love this name! I met someone who named thier son Presely and LOVE it. My husband likes it for a girl though, not a boy. So if I get blessed with a lil girl she will be Presley Paige

I live in Australia and my daughter Presslea is 15 years old, we love the name and so does she. Children with unique names have more luck in life they say. The only problem is people spell it Presley and most teachers don't think first they say Pricilla (a mind thing I think). Go for it, it is not as popular here in Australia but it is a great name. My son's name is Jace and everyone says Jason.

My husband and I are naming our little girl Prestley (notice the T) as a female version of Preston.
