Meaning:Black, dark; Pale
Names that end in “ley” denote an extra dose of cuteness and whimsy. Blakeley—although a bit mysterious too—is no exception. This gender-neutral choice is of Old English origin from the word blæc, and means "black," or "dark." It might, however, instead stem from the word blāc, meaning "pale." Perhaps this theme of opposites will instill within baby an open mind! A natural empath and full of compassion, your Blakeley won't see the world in black and white, but instead as a vibrant kaleidoscope to discover. Blakeley's root name is, of course, Blake, as in actress Blake Lively.
