Another inventive name for the Palin family
Posted May 9th, 2017
Atlee, Attlee, and Atley are all spellings of the same English surname. It comes from the phrase “atte lee,” meaning someone who lived near a lee, a meadow, clearing, or a wood.
Atlee makes for a new entry in the category. Just 27 girls and 30 boys were named Atlee in 2015. That represents a new high. Could one high profile birth push Atlee into the mainstream? Other Palin family names, including Bristol, have risen in use since the family entered the spotlight in 2008.
Congratulations to the family!
