  1. i have to admit- the first time i read this i thought “You’ve GOT to be kidding me… how awful is this…” But i haven’t stopped thinking about the name since. It has been intriguing me that i actually have started to like it– probably not to the point that i would use it for my own child, but more to the point where if i met a boy named Radley i would not think “OMG” but would think “Hmmm” if that makes any sense at all.

  2. I’m not a fan, either, but I actually know a ~27-year-old Radley. I have no idea of the provenance of his name, but he is from North Carolina or Tennessee. Just had to add that bit of data!

  3. I agree with Sara A.

    I’m not a fan, but I’m also not a fan of a lot of names people are liking these days. So it gets a yae from me. It definitely fits in with the Haydens, Jaydens and Emerys.
