Lesley is a name rooted in the green hills of Scotland and Ireland. It means “garden of holly,” which is associated in the Western world with Christmas but by ancient Celts as a symbol of truth. Together, these origins give Lesley a mystical, homey quality. As a unisex name, you can alter the spelling to make it more feminine or masculine.
