I really like the name Hadley but when I looked it up all the baby name sites say its a girls name (we are having a boy). I thought it was a boys name....anyone heard it used for a boy before? And what do people think of the name in general...yay or nay?
Raymond John or John Raymond (can't decide which way round to have them yet) will be the middle names (my dads and my grandpa who is 100 this year). Our last name is Mann

Is this a boy or girl name?

I only know of a male Hadley, so I vote boy's name. I quite like it.

I think it could be either.
I tend to think of it as a girl's name but that's only because it was a female character's name in a book series I read.

Personally I don't like it,sorry.
But don't let my opinion stop you
To me also it sounds more feminine then masculine.

I only think of it as a female name because it's the name of Sookie Stackhouses (female) cousin in TrueBlood.

My immediate reaction is it's a girls name.

Makes me think of Ray Hadley, I'm sorry! Having a blonde moment so I can't pinpoint that name right now, he's either a radio presenter or to do with footy.
ETA - I think Hadley itself is a masculine name, rather than feminine. But then Jessica Simpson called her little girl Maxwell! I myself wouldn't use it together with your preferred middle names because of the Ray Hadley parallels.
