I named my daughter Halle, and I LOVE the name. I did not foresee the mispronunciation of Hailey though. And it's ALL the time: doctor's office, co-workers, even my adult friends pause before they say her name. My daughter (age 3) doesn't even notice. If someone calls her Hailey, she doesn't realize they are talking to her, and she just keeps on playing.
I am adding to this because I completely agree with the last person - I also didn't foresee the "Hailey" mispronunciation and it happens ALL THE TIME with my one year old. I still love the name though and it suits my little one perfectly!
