Meaning:Hare's meadow; The long field
Harley is a gender-neutral name of British origin, coming from the Old English words hara, meaning “hare,” and leah, meaning “meadow.” Harley is derived from Shropshire and West Yorkshire areas with this habitational name. Harley first hit the charts as a masculine personal name in 1880. It took over 100 years before the title became a trendy name for girls in 1991. In 1992, DC Comics birthed the chaotic villain, Harley Quinn, validating the name as an edgy, feminine title. Once associated with motorbikes, Harley is now retro-chic and gender-fluid and will be a stylish name for baby in this modern world.
