I remember asking my mother one time when I was a child, “Mom, was Haley the first name you wanted to name me?” She laughed and said, “Well, Hank was our first choice, but he decided to come second.” She told me that there was another name that she was wanting to give me, Mahaliah, but she and my dad decided that Haley was the best fit.

I agree.

This blog was created in the memory of my beautiful mother, and the given name that could have been. I pray that you enjoy it.
