Meaning

This very pretty name is a variation of Ainslie, the last name of a powerful Scottish clan. The Olde English interpretation of Ainsley means “isolated glade”, bringing to mind little girls with neat hairdos and collars on their gingham dresses. It might’ve started life as a unisex first name, but Ainsley has become more popular for baby girls in recent years.
