For babies who feel like a warm summer breeze and sail through life with their happy personalities, Sorley is a wonderful choice.

As well as having Irish and Gaelic roots, it also comes from the Old Norse word sumarliðr, meaning “summer-warrior,” referring to Vikings who raided during the summer rather than year-round.
