Meaning:Deer meadow
Hartley is a gender-neutral name of British origin. Broken down, the Old English word heorot means “stag” or “deer,” while leah means “woodland” or “clearing,” coming to the popular translation of “deer meadow.” When dreaming up images of a beautiful meadow with the calm nature of a deer thriving in its tranquil surroundings, it’s hard not to fall in love. Although deer can be mistaken for just timid, they have keen senses and have survived as the gatherers of the world for millennia. With a name like this, clever baby Hartley will no doubt also be a calming presence in your life with some surprising hidden talents. Others may also associate Hartley with the Irish name Ó hArtghaile, meaning “descendant of Artghal.”
