When I tell people my grandaughter's name is Harley I find that young people love it but old people just don't get it.
- Personal experiences with the name Harley: | Edit
I named my daughter Harley Quinn. Most people associate it with the motor cycle. When I mention her middle name they associate it with the books. But a handful of people get where we got it from. Harley Quinn is in DC comics Batman series as Joker's sidekick and GF.
I have had the name Harley for 15 years now, and I can't imagine life not named it! Yes everyone at first makes the Harley-Davidson remarks, but they get past it. Some people even argue it's a boy's name, but I love it! It's an uncommon name for my age group. Sometimes I'll hear people say Carly, and I'll mistake my own name. I've only met 1 other person named Harley, but I've met several dogs and a snake.
My name is Harley Davis. When I was younger kids would tease me about the motorcycle. And yes, the motorcycle is why my parents named me that. However, I think it is a very cool and unique name. When I tell people my name, they sometimes think I said "Carley," or some people mistake it for "Haley." When I ever get married, I want to keep my last name "Davis" because that being my last name is why I was named Harley.
