  1. My little guy is named Westley, inadvertently I ended up with 3 kiddos with names ending in -ly, -lie, -ley…my oldest is named Kimberly than my middle daughter was named Natalie so when trying to determine a name for this little guy I decided to end it in -ley because I’d feel awkward with one child with an odd out name if it didn’t end the same, so I tried long and hard of a boys name that ended the way I desired and still had some kind of meaning for me so I decided to name him after my uncle Westley?.

  2. All of our kids have unique names we got from books or a movie. Westley’s name came from Princess Bride. His is the least unique comparatively, but spell check still says his name is misspelled having the “t” in there. We wanted our kids to have different names, not generic ones that many others have.

  3. We selected this name after a character from one of our favorite movies, The Princess Bride. We wanted a unique name that was more than one syllable as our last name is only one. I also like the spelling as it sets it apart a little more.
