I think Radley is a cool and unique name. Of course Rad isn't good by itself, but it's a cute nickname, especially for a Radley. I've never heard it before. Aweome name!

Tuesdayelizabeth Says:


My sons name is Radley and I was a little uneasy about calling him Rad at first. I thought it was a little silly. Now that he is one, I call him Rad all of the time. I also thinks it's fitting. Would I solely use Rad as a first name? Probably not. I do think it makes for a cute nickname though.

CocoWhite Says:
