Hailey: baby girl name meaning and popularity


A variation of Hayley, this name links back to the English surname Haley, which means “the clearing of hay from a meadow.” While she might not be clearing hay, let’s just hope she’ll clear her bedroom of all those toys on the floor some day.



Famous people named Hailey:

Halley’s Comet; The Parent Trap actress Hayley Mills; singer Hailee Steinfeld.

Fun fact:

The name became well known in the 1960s when twin girls played the ultimate prank on their parents in The Parent Trap. We also hear the name a lot every 75 years or so when a famous comet makes its way around.
