Meaning:Priest's meadow
It’s hard to hear the name Presley without thinking of the one and only Elvis. But this gender-neutral name predates The King by quite a number of years. An English surname derived from a place name meaning someone who dwells near the “priest’s meadow,” it first emerged in 12th century records. Today it’s primarily a girls' name found only in the US and it is also a standout name for boys. In 1999, model Cindy Crawford named her son Presley Walker. Given its musical quality and timeless appeal, it's no wonder parents "Can't Help Falling in Love" with this special name!
