UGH Harley vs. Rose!!!!!!!

Hi, everyone i’m Natalie and my husband Danny and I are expecting our first child together (a little girl.) We recently have been talking about what were going to name her sense she will be born in early June. After alot of suggesting and talking about names my husband come up with Harley Rose. Truthfully I hate the name it sounds terrible and I don’t want to name my baby after a motercycle! But, he tells me there is NO way anybody couldn’t love this name. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me the honest truth what do you think of Harley Rose?

The Top Baby Name is...

Name Votes
Ugh Harley 0% (0 votes)
Rose!!!!!!! 0% (0 votes)


Honestly, I think it sounds uneducated and tacky, sorry! I love Rose, but Harley is horrible, no offense! Hailey Rose would be better, but I’m not even too fond of Hailey. Hannah Rose would be beautiful!

no matter what, if you don’t like it don’t use it! What about something similar like Haley, Hartley, Carley, Bailey....

what do YOU like?

I knew a girl names harley rose and it suited her- but she was kind of a "tough girl" and her parents were bikers. she was super cute.

I agree with you I don’t like it either! Rose is nice but Harley is not a good name especially for a girl!

Oh thankyou!!!!!! Somebody agrees with me!!!

I have tried talking him into anyhing.....ANYTHING other then Harley I always though Harley was kind of a tomboy name so I thought it was unisex. I tried even unisex names even though im not too fond of them either. Haylie he dosn’t like and I took a chance and went with some feminine names including Hannah and got nowhere.

Harley makes me think Harlot! It isn’t a great name, sorry. I looked up baby named that start with HAR- and got the following list
(I filtered a bunch out, Har means something in Sanskrit so there were some very interesting names)
Best of luck. I really like Hara Rose and Harriet Rose or even Henrietta Rose

Best of luck!

Well, what I think doesn’t matter, but I personally think it sounds low-rent and not classy at all.

The way I see it, you have a couple extra votes when it comes to naming the baby. I mean, you’re the one carrying the baby and the one who has to go through labor & delivery. You have veto power, and I say veto his name!!! What names do you like? Maybe we can help suggest other names if we know what style you looking for! =)

Yikes. I think it’s terrible. Not only is Harley as tacky and trashy as they come, Rose is completely "blah" and typical. It’s also a word and color so I’m not impressed.

Try something like:


Also, don’t go with something equally as awful as Hailey (Halie, Hayley, Haylee, etc.), Hadley, Hartley, etc. (Even cut out Darby, Darcy, Malia, Peyton, Weslie, Bailey, Finley and all the other misspelled and terrible names)

I think Harmony is a great name. Much better than Harley. Harley just sounds so tough.

Harley is definitely a tomboy, unisex type name

I love Harmony Rose! Have a heart to heart and let him know how awful you think Harley is. Give him rose, it may be plain, but if he loves it that much, at least its not Harley!

Harmony Rose is a gorgeous name!!! I think that will be a great compromise!
