Love this name but not sure how it should be spelt. What are your thoughts?

Disenchanted3 Tue 09-Jun-09 09:49:05

Pronounced how?

Hallie I would say ' hall-y'

people might pronounce Halle, as Hale (as in stone?)

Disenchanted3 Tue 09-Jun-09 09:49:24

no not hall -

hal - lee

can't even tell whether this is for a boy or girl - are you thinking Halle[can't do acute accent on my laptop keyboard] orchestra here? Sounds made-up to me.

I know a Hally. Her full name is Valhalla though...

LoveFalafel Tue 09-Jun-09 09:51:57

Yes it would be pronounced Hal-lee

Disenchanted3 Tue 09-Jun-09 09:54:06

Love it too, I know a little girl called this, pronounced how Disenchanted said (2nd time)

Sorry should have given more information. It's for a girl. I don't think that it is made up since there is the actress Halle Berry but it is good to have that feedback.

I like it!
I'm not sure which way I'd spell it though - I like Halle but wonder if Hallie would make it easier for people to know how to pronounce it. Can it be spelt Hally?

Madmentalbint Tue 09-Jun-09 10:03:15

Ooo yes....weren't the girls in Parent Trap called Hallie and Annie?

Def not a made up name.

Halle like in Halle Barry (catwoman)

ramonaquimby Tue 09-Jun-09 11:51:59

no - the actress playing the twin sisters was called Hayley Mills.

not keen on Halle (as in Halle Berry)

really like Hayley

Madmentalbint Tue 09-Jun-09 16:26:32

I'm talking about the twins in Parent Trap played by Lindsay Lohan

I don't know the one with Hayley Mills in

lizzy77 Tue 09-Jun-09 17:17:51

Halle is better i think

ramonaquimby Tue 09-Jun-09 17:20:36

you must watch the original, much better!!

MamaMimi Tue 09-Jun-09 18:18:33

I know someone called Hayley who had a dd last month and called her Halle!

GreatGooglyMoogly Tue 09-Jun-09 18:23:19

Halle Berry was named after a Department Store so it is made up but having said that there is a Halle at DS2's nursery school so it seems to have caught on already

Madmentalbint Wed 10-Jun-09 14:49:18

I'll do that ramonaquimby

I loved Hayley Mills films when I was little. I think Cast Away was my fave!

I know a turkish girl called Hale - pronounced more Hallay- so I think it is a real name as well.
