  • "My name is Hayley, named after Hayley Mills and before it got popular. I love my name, but I think that it just sounds weird in my mouth when I say it because I never have to say it myself! It is also confusing when there's a Bailey of Kaley in my class because sometimes I never know who someone is talking to! The misspellings don't really bother me though, but you have to be careful what middle name you give if you're thinking about naming your daughter Hayley. Like my middle name is Jean and I think that Hayley Jean just sounds too rustic! And also there are almost no nicknames, but I love it anyway!
