Paley is a masculine name of English origin that’s traditionally used as a last name and can have a variety of meanings. One possibility is that it comes from Middle English words that mean “pale eye,” and can be a great choice if light-colored irises run in baby’s family. Another meaning is “from the fenced enclosure or palisade,” since the word pale used to refer to a stake or a fence. Paley can also be a variant of Pawley or Pauley, which comes from the Latin name Paul and means “small” and “humble.” For a name that celebrates baby’s small, adorable start to life or the traits they inherited, Paley can make for a lovely choice.
