or Heili?

personally I wouldn't choose them.

It would depend on whether you thought those shoes with roller skaes in them are still going to be popular when she arrives at school...(If Healey is pronounced Heely)

Honest answer? The first thing I thought about was Heely shoes (with the heels in the wheels).

Sorry to be brutal, but I've always thought it was quite an ugly surname.

I thought 'Jeremy'
[shows age]

It sounds like you've got mixed up between Hayley and Keely.

shoes with wheels...

Only if she looks like this as thats who anyone of a certain age will think of when they hear the name I'm afraid

honestly? Rubbish

reethi96 Fri 11-Jul-08 10:05:08

Awful. Sorry.

I'd stick to Hayley, tbh, because that's what everyone will call her anyway.

Healey is forever associted with Dennis Healey and his bushy eyebrows!

one of the worst ideas


and if it was a name it wouldnt be a girlks name

just odd

DRAGON30 Fri 11-Jul-08 10:17:03

Dennis and eyebrows. Everyone will think you can't spell Hayley

TsarChasm Fri 11-Jul-08 10:18:33

Could have Keeley?

robinpud Fri 11-Jul-08 10:18:59

I think your homrones are getting the better of you tbh...

robinpud Fri 11-Jul-08 10:19:52

If u had a boy you could call it Weeli

these are all dreadful

Holly is a nice name

pedilia Fri 11-Jul-08 10:49:33

I think it is awful!

AbbeyA Fri 11-Jul-08 10:52:18

Dreadful! I think Dennis.
I misread the second one as Heidi. Why make up a name-use Heidi or Hayley.

I used to know a girl whose name was Helin, and was called Heli (rhymes with belly). It is an Estonian name.

It's the name of a fairly boring part of the fairly boring town I'm from so I don't like it.

Is it a family name? If so I might go with it but only as a middle name. If it's not, then I think there are much prettier names out there.
