"I am a Lesley and I love my name. I think it looks and sounds pretty, and although I prefer the unvoiced "s," it doesn't bother me when people use the "z" sound. I also don't get upset when people spell it Leslie (more common in the U.S.), but I prefer the "y"! I don't think "Lesley" or "Leslie" is very popular these days, but that's a shame. Maybe it will come back in a generation or two?" May. 26, 2017:

"It's a pretty spelling and Less-ley is a pretty name. But most people say Lezley, and spell it ?e', which is surprisingly annoying to me - especially as they're my inlaws! No one has bothered to notice the spelling or pronunciation." Jul. 16, 2017:
"I am LESLEY from UK so the British pronunciation is always that an "s" alone is pronounced as a "z" It takes a double "ss" to pronounce it Lessley
The "ey" is the feminine ending. "ie" is masculine. The name was originally a Scottish surname and meant "from the grey fort"" Oct. 17, 2016:
"I am 43 my grandpa was Leslie and I am Lesley. I truly hate when people say Lezley.I was so happy to see others with the same spelling. It also seems like all the Lesley's I know have the middle name Ann." Apr. 16, 2014:

"Yes my name is Lesley and I have a awful time getting people to spell it and I never find it on items in gift stores. Mine also gets pronounced wrong. It is with an "s" sound, not "z" sound." Jun. 1, 2005:
