"Named our son Harley, his father has always wanted a Harley Davidson.. I gave him a Harley Andy?s son.. we love the name for our son and he also loves it. I think it has a calming, cool and chill out ring to it. We originally wanted him to be a Jake, he did not look like a Jake when he was born. Harley really suits him. 💙" Jun. 12, 2019:

"My name is Harley, and personally I don't think it's a good name to grow up with. It's always been very annoying due to the fact you are always compared to a motorcycle and asked about motorcycles, for some people this may not be an issue but I've always hated riding motorcycles. But seriously If I hear another motorcycle joke someone is going to get yeeted." Jul. 24, 2019:
