Hanley is a beautiful boy’s name of English origin. Taken from the Old English term haer lea, Hanley means “high meadow.” While Hanley is mainly recognized as the name of a town in Staffordshire, England, it’s also said to hail from the Irish family name O’Hanley, coming from the Irish expression ainle for “beauty” or “grace.” Your little darling might be doted on for their adorable looks, but their “H”-sounding name will have everyone falling head over heels in love.
