The Hawadle or Hawaadle (Somali: Xawaadle, Arabic: حوادله‎) is a Somali clan. Members of the clan traditionally inhabit southern Somalia, especially in the Hiiraan region where they predominantly live. The Hawadle along with many other Somali clans trace themselves to a forefather named Mayle, who was one of the sons of Samaale.[1][2]
