Hale can refer to:

People

Surname

From the Old English h(e)alh - nook, hollow or recess.

There was no single family which first took the name; it emerged independently across many parts of the United Kingdom - they took their name from where they lived. People who lived in a halh, - which was a specialised term for the slightest hollow which could afford shelter to a settlement, as opposed to the larger cumb or valley - could be found all over the country.
