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 ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy

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.Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.
