I consider Behindthename.com my most trusted name site for factual meaings and etymology. They say:
Halle -- Male -- Norse -- From the Old Norse name Halli, a diminutive of names containing the element hallr meaning "rock".
And from their site it says Halle Barry (spelled wrong there) was named for a department store.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^

Halle is originally a Norse boys name meaning 'rock'. I like it but had to give it up because I struggle to pronounce it the correct way.

Since in English Halle is mostly a form of Hallie, which is a nickname, I guess the meaning would depend of what the original full name was.
For example, Hallie is usually a a diminutive of Harriet — ultimately from the Germanic name Heinrich, "home+ruler". If you see it as short of Halldora ("Thor's rock") or Halcyon ("kingfisher bird") or Haroldine ("army leader"), the meaning would vary accordingly.Florence Maud- Mary Valentine - Ada Imogen - Clementine Everly - Esmée Alexandra | Benedict Henry - Lucan Frederick - Augustine Louis - Emory Patrick - Theodore John
