My friends sister is Harley and it suits her but personally thinks its more for a boy. I really like this name

I know one boy called this - does get mistaken for Harvey though.

Personally, I like the name for a boy or a girl.

Only one I've known of was a girl.

I'd leave it for the motorbikes personally.

It's not a boy or girl name - just for motorbikes

More of a boy name: "From 1993 on, increasingly more girls than boys were named Harley. In 2006, the name Harley was given to 78% more girls than boys." Statistics and info from these pages:
boy name Harley
girl name Harley

I know a boy called Harley-Lee and I know a beautyful young woman called Harley...and the name really suits her so much!

Good if your surname is Gettinoverit.

I prefer it to be a boys name and i like it...
Never heard of a girl called Harley.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO Had a 'friend' a few years ago - a biker - who called her little girl Harley as in Davidson. It was awful!

Very chav for either sex

That's an interesting link about the name - it seems as though Harley is actually a traditional old english name.

Martin Kemp's daughter is called Harley Moon (obscure memory fact from MAS)
