  • A site on the internet specializing in the meaning of males baby names gives us some insite into the meaning of "THURLEY". "Your name of Thurley gives you the desire for success and financial accumulation and the confidence and drive to go after your ambitions, regardless of obstacles. Your thinking revolves around business and ways of making money, rather than on music, art, drama, or philosophy. You start new endeavours and incorporate new ideas, but seldom if ever receive the full benefits and financial accumulation for your efforts. You tend to feel very frustrated in being unable to realize your ambitions fully. An extremely independent and self-sufficient person, you dislike taking orders or advice from anyone. You believe in speaking directly and to the point, so you are candid and abrupt. Many friendships are lost because of your directness. Those in close association complain that you are not inclined to observe and return acts of kindness, compassion, or affection. You would be a firm parent and your children would be well-disciplined, but you would find it difficult to get close to them and to show compassion and affection. Weaknesses in your health affect the senses of the head, causing eye, ear or sinus trouble and the generative organs.
