"I love my name it's unique and I never have really come across anyone who has the name besides Halle Berry. However as a kid I was always so annoyed by my name. People would never call me by the right name they would always pronounce it wrong and always say it like a question as if they weren't sure if they pronounced it wrong. When I was younger id play along with my teachers when they'd say is 'HAY LEE' here I'd respond yes not bothering to correct them for some reason i wasn't the most confident person and was extremely shy so I never really told my teachers the right pronunciation usually my friends and or class mates would should its Halle! That really got on my nerves and I felt very sad and annoyed about my name but overtime I grew to like it for it's uniqueness and am really happy I was named Halle" Aug. 1, 2014:

"I named my daughter (now almost 2) Halley and we LOVE it! She's spunky, yet beautiful, tough but still girly, unique on her own accord. She can be loveable or fiercely independent depending on her mood! This name wrapped ALL of this up for me, and I adore it! I want SO badly to find a similar name to give my next daughter (due in just 3 weeks!!!) And I still can't find one that "measures up" to Halley in my opinion." May. 29, 2011:
"Our daughter is now 5.5 years old, named Halle like Halle Berry. She does get mistaken as being a Hailey or Allie quite often, but has also learned to correct people. I love that her name is unique enough that we've never met anyone else with it...but also common enough that it's easy to spell and pronounce. She definatley suits her name as a firey yet considerate girl." Mar. 28, 2011:
"This is my 19 month old daughters' name and it's PERFECT for her! She is spunky, full of energy, absolutely adorable and affectionate. I LOVE it so much! We're expecting another girl now, and I have NO idea what to name her to follow this perfect girl's name." Feb. 23, 2011:
"this is my 7 month old daughters name 'halle' i actually didn't name her my 8 yr old daughter hannah did she didn't get the name from halle berry as being 8 she wouldn't know who that was, she got it from the film 'parent trap' in which lyndsey lohan plays both twins, i thought it was perfect as it is also a name which is not that common in the uk. the name suits her perfectly but yes i agree with u all when people ask her name they automatically think halle berry, i get to say no as it wasnt because of her." Jan. 1, 2011:

"My daughter is 3 years old. and yes, named after Halle Berry. That's what the kids call her at daycare, after everyone finally realized her name WASN'T Hailey, or Ally.

Hooray for Halles!!" Feb. 2, 2010:

"Our 8 yr-old daughter's name is Halle. It's a beautiful name, and she is a beautiful child. Her name really suits her, and we are complimented on her name all the time. She does get "Hayley-ed" or "Holly-ed" occasionally; she thinks this is "funny." We live in New York City and have run into a (growing) number of other "Halles" and "Hallies" at school and in afterschool classes. We chose to spell her name like "Halle Berry" because we preferred it, but "Halle" or "Hallie" -- you just can't go wrong with this name!!!" Jul. 28, 2009:
"My name is Halle and I loooove it. I've heard it means "ocean"[beautiful,calming] or rock[tough,down to earth]or truthful. I think my name is pretty cool!" Mar. 10, 2009:
"It's always Hailey. Or Holly. Why so confusing, people? It's a simple name, really. And a good name." Nov. 11, 2008:
"I'm named Halle! I love my name very much, it's unique, I've never personally come across another Halle in my life. However, everyone tends to call me "Haley" or "Holly," and it's often misspelled.
As for meaning, I've heard of several origins: greek (thinking of the sea), english (home rule), norwegian (rock) to name a few." Oct. 15, 2008:
"My daughters name is Halle, and I absolutly love it, and have yet to meet another Halle. Everyone trys to call her Hailey, she is over a year now and her one grandfather STILL calls her hailey. I picked the name from a movie, "how to deal" the girls characters name was Halle and I loved it, she was strong willed and beautiful. It fits, my girl is also strong willed and takes my breath away!" Sep. 19, 2008:
"I named my daughter daughter Hallee. I put two e's on the end because my name is Ashlee, so I thought that would be neat. Everyone pronouces it wrong though. How hard is it really. I guess I should of spelled it like this Hal-Lee. They constantly are calling her Haylie or Holly. I can understand Holly, buty Haylie. I love her name. The meaning of the name Halle really fits her too. She is in Kintergarden right now and no one has her name. I remember getting so aggravated when there was more than one person with my name in a class. I did not want her to be the same way." Mar. 4, 2008:
"Halle is my daughters name, it is pronouced Hal-lie just like Halle berry. I cant believe how many people mis pronounce it. Most people call her Hailey." Jan. 13, 2008:
"Yes. People spell and pronounce it wrong all the time!!!" Sep. 11, 2007:
"Always called Hailey. People want to spell it Hallie or Halley." Aug. 16, 2007:
"I didn't have a name picked out and went into labor 5.5 weeks early. I happened to see Halle Berry in a magazine right before I went into labor and feel-good hormones made me think it was perfect. My daughter's name is Halle. It's a beautiful name and with it's powerful meaning, suites my daughter but she's had to correct the pronunciation since she could speak. Too many close names exist: Hailey, Holly, Callie, Alley, Hadley, . . .It took family a year to get it straight. . .I wouldn't do it again." Jun. 22, 2007:

"My name is Hallie (like the others, pronounced as in "Halle Berry"), and also like the others, I have had many people call me anything from Haylee to Hadley to Hannah, and even Helen a few times. But over all, it's a beautiful name. I'm named for Hallie in "The Parent Trap"... Love my name and I am so blessed!!" Jun. 15, 2014:

"My name is halle too! I honestly didn't think that there were this many halles with the same pronuncation! Its irritating and funny at the same time whenever i hear people totally mess up my name or when they call someone with a similar name and we're both confused. In my experience, all the other Halles I've met have been some of the most interesting and energetic people i know. Watch out though, we Halles have quite a bit of spunk!" Oct. 21, 2011:

"We named our daugher Hailey but pronounce it like Halle (Halle Berry) We thought the ail sound like in tail, mail would make people pronounce it like Halle. My husband came up with the spelling. I wish we could change the spelling because peope keep calling her Hayley. I guess if we changed the spelling people might still mess it up anyway. What can ya do. We just people we pronounce it different." Jul. 23, 2009:
"My daughters name is Halli. My name is Allison, but I go by Alli, which is why my husband and I chose to spell it that way. We get a ton of compliments on how beautiful the name is.. Once people are told how to pronounce it! 99.99 percent of the time she is called "Hailey." It blows my mind. Common sense, hello..." Jul. 23, 2008:
"My name is Hally, and it is pronounced like "Sally" but with an "h" [obviously}. I have this name because my father's name also starts with an "H." My name is very rare, I think. I have never met anyone with the same name as I have. I even looked it up on the internet, but it's always usually "Hallie," "Halle," "Haley," "Halley," etc. I have no idea where it originated from, and can find no information on it. Many of the people I meet usually mispronounce it. They usually say "Hailey" or "holly." In fact, one of my closest friends calls me "Holly" instead of "Hally." And when people actually get it right the first time, I am very surprised. Sometimes, I have to tell people that it's "Hally" as in "Halle Berry," but after a few minutes, they forget and go back to pronouncing my name the wrong way. It usually takes them a few tries to finally get it right. Sometimes, it gets annoying, but usually I don't really care if they mispronounce it. All I have to do is recognize their voices and I'll know if they're calling me." Jun. 12, 2008:
"Everyone says my name wrong. When I correct them they say, "like Halle Berry!"" Oct. 2, 2007:
"My name is Hally, prounounced just like "Hallie" or "Sally." I get a lot of mispronuciations, including Holly (understandable - especially when handwritten, the a can look like an o) or, the one that really irritates me, "Haley." (Hay-lee) I think the thing that is the most upsetting is when people (usually males, interestingly), mispronounce my name, I'll let them know how it's correctly pronounced, and then they say, "Close enough" or something like that. No......"Haley" and "Holly" are some other girls, they're not me. I'm Hally. I'll even ask then how they would like it if I called them by the wrong name, say "Jane" instead of "James" or "Mark" instead of "Mike." Somehow, they usually just don't get it. It's like, if it's a unique name it's somehow OK not to learn to pronounce it right. I think the stupidest thing anyone ever said to me about my name is they said, "Your name is HALLY? Wow! Are you related to Halle Berry?"" Jul. 22, 2006:
