Ailey Meaning and Origin

Ailey is a girl’s name meaning “light” and is of Irish origin. Ailey is derived from the Scottish Gaelic name Eilidh, which is a diminutive form of the name Eilionoir (Eleanor) or Ealasaid (Elizabeth). It shares the same origins as the name Ailie, which is also a variant spelling. The name Ailey is not as widely used as some other names but has gained moderate popularity in recent years. A great alternative to the much more popular Hailey, names that end in “ley” have been super popular for a while, but this more uncommon one is a name many of us haven’t heard before. With a name like Ailey, it’s possible to follow that trend while still letting your little girl be unique.
