Gender: F Meaning of Hadley: "heather field" Origin of Hadley: English Hadley's Popularity in 2016: #108

Hadley, most famous as the name of Ernest Hemingway's first wife, is more sophisticated, professional, and modern than cousins Harley, Haley, or Hayden. After debuting on the Top 1000 list in 1998, Hadley has climbed up the popularity list almost every year, now just outside the Top 100 at Number 108. The hit book The Paris Wife, a novel told from the point of view of Hadley Hemingway (born Elizabeth Hadley Richardson), has helped popularize the name, which also appears on the vampire show True Blood. Hadley could become this generation's Hailey.
