- Comments and insights on the name Wiley
Wiley was the name we looked for back in early 90's. It was unique and traditional. Our son is kind, brilliant and calm. We love him dearly.
- Personal experiences with the name Wiley
My great-grandpa's and my dad's middle name. Had I been a boy, it would have been my middle name (my mom spent a lot of time praying for a girl). I love it, especially for a MN, but my husband hates it as much as my mom does.
Wiley has been a name in my husband's family since the late 1800s. Even today, the name occasionally crops up as a boy's first or middle name. The boys all seem content and un-teased. Outside the family, though, we rarely hear it, which is too bad. It's one of those Anglo-Saxon names that's unique but not freakish or burdened with trendy spelling.
My maiden name is Wiley. I loved it and was sad to give it up when I got married so I kept it as my middle name--so did all of my sisters!
