It’s hard to hear the name Presley without thinking of Elvis. But the 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 was first mentioned in records from the 12th century. Though today it’s primarily a girls' name found only in the US, it has boy namesakes too: In 1999, model Cindy Crawford named her son Presley Walker. If you want a different spelling, try Pressley or Presslee.
