My American friend had a little girl yesterday named Atley.

Anyone heard this name before?

No I haven't heard of Atley before.

I haven't heard Atley before either.

Closest I've heard is Adlai (as in Adlai Stevenson).

No. I haven't. But I am positive that there are many, many, probably many millions of names that I have not heard of.

I think I've seen Atlee on an older man, and Atleigh on a girl. Pretty unusual though.

Never heard of it, but don't mind it for a name (not that I'd use it)

I know of a man called Atley/Atlee. Makes me think of Clement Atlee. I"m pretty sure your friend didn't name her little girl after a long dead British PM though. Or maybe she's a 20th Century history geek?

English surname.  New to me as a given name but not unuseable..

I've seen lots and lots of assorted -ley surnames as given names, and that sort of "bit like Ashley, bit like Ainsley" thing is right in style.

I like it. Different without being outlandish.
It's a name I would definitely consider using if I were baby making all over again.

Never heard it before, but I really like it. Very close to the name Atlas for a boy which is awesome.

I havent heard it before but cant see any probelms with it, seems a reasonable name to me.

In some of the southern US states, it's quite common for a girl to be given her mothers maiden name as her first name. It's a bit of a tradition in "old money" families.
