We used this name as a middle name for our daughter, Wren. It was my Granny Lucy's middle name as well. We string them together as Wrenly to get her attention.

My grandfather's name was Lee and he was such a HUGE influence in my life. I really love the idea of using this name but sometimes I am afraid it's a *little* too plain.

sounds incomplete, I suggest you add it to something else as a first name. You could do : Haylee, Kaylee, Arlee, hadlee, Jaylee, Marlee, tinslee, Baylee, ainslee, kinslee, kinzee,

I like this name a lot. It’s very energetic but chill at the same time. I like the middle name Parker with it too. Lee Parker.

FantasticOctopus Says:


I love this name. A lot of people seem to consider it a middle name and nothing else, but I love it as a first too. It could work either way, really. It can work on a girl or adult woman, and can fit many personalities (it isn't too flowery or long, but has a wonderful meaning).

I'm sorry. I just love this name way too much.
