Gender: F Meaning of Dale: "valley" Origin of Dale: English

An early unisex nature name that has been surpassed by others, Dale is still a simple, sylvan and serene option.

Most of Dale's recent best known bearers--father and son race drivers Dale Earnhart, glass sculptor Dale Chihuly--but if you look further back to her heyday as a girls' name (she was Number 237 in 1952), you'll find singing cowgirl Dale Evans (born France Octavia) and Flash Gordon's gal, Dale Arden.
