    I, too, recall the Whitley character from 'A Different World'. It's a little princess-y, especially w/the -leigh spelling. That might be the appeal for your husband. I don't hate it...it just frightens me a little.

    I knew a Whitley as a child, and my dad secretly nicknamed her Witless, so that's all I think of at any Whit-names.

    It feels dated to me, I would expect a Whitley/leigh to be mid-20s at the youngest
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    I think I like the name Whitley itself, which seems to me to be a slightly more modern and surname-y twist on Whitney, but I really do not like the -leigh spelling at all. It just seems unnecessarily complicated and looks like it's trying too hard.

    I don't care for Whitleigh, the name or the spelling. I think it's a name you'll get mixed reviews on in real life. For me, it's almost hard to say. Like it doesn't roll off the tongue very easily.
