Hurlee is an Irish name for a baby boy. Traditionally used as a last name, it can be used as a first name for a fresh, contemporary twist. Hurlee stems from the Gaelic Ó hUirthile and can mean "sea tides," "long ridge," "descendant of a long-time warrior," and possibly "great flood." An alternative spelling is Hurley, the name of the wooden stick used in one of Ireland's national sports, hurling. If you have Irish roots, Hurlee could be a thoughtful and fitting way to tighten your ancestral connections all the way across the Atlantic Ocean. This Emerald Isle-inspired title won't get washed out with the tides of popularity, for its timeless appeal makes it a universally appealing choice for baby. If your homeland is the other island across the pond, you will be happy to know that Hurlee also has Old English connections. It can come from the word hyrtle, meaning "hill," or combining hyrne, meaning "corner," and lēah, meaning "clearing."
