Afton?

I have only ever seen Afton on a little boy, and it feels very masculine to me. But looking at old name berry posts, it seems that it has consistently been a unisex name throughout the years.

Do you see Afton as more masculine, feminine, or unisex? If you had to use the name, would you use it for a son or daughter?

It also feels quite masculine to me. I can’t picture a girl with this name.

The only [name_f]Afton[/name_f] I’ve ever known as a girl, so I feel the opposite!

I’ve really only ever considered it as a feminine name. But I’ve never met one of any gender. The sounds are fairly neutral and tailored, so I don’t see why [name_f]Afton[/name_f] wouldn’t work for a boy.

Unisex for me - surname-y and cool, but with cute nickname [name_f]Affie[/name_f]

The only [name_f]Afton[/name_f] I know is a little boy! He’s about 6 or 7 and wears his name well!

All I can think is: [name_m]William[/name_m] [name_f]Afton[/name_f].

I’ve only known girls with the name, but as it’s a place-name where I live, it seems solidly unisex to me.

I know a woman named [name_f]Afton[/name_f], who I have known since childhood, so for this reason it has always seemed feminine in my mind. I know a lot of people who do not like this name, but I actually like it. It feels very natural and reminds me of skiing.

[name_f]Afton[/name_f] is one of my favorite girl names! I think it’s sweet for both boys & girls, but the only [name_f]Afton[/name_f] I have ever known was a girl!
