Hallie originated as a nickname for Harriet, the English form of Henriette, the French diminutive of Henri, the French male form of Henry meaning “home ruler” composed from Germanic elements heim (home) and ric (power, ruler). Hallie is also a surname made up from Old English heall (hall; residence) and lēah (wood, meadow, clearing) essentially meaning “dweller at the hall by the meadow”, a locational name for someone who likely lived in a large estate near some woods. Though currently a female given name, Hallie has been used as a male name in the past.
