I knew a male [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] so I do prefer it on a boy. It’s an English gentleman kind of name. I think it’s handsome and distinguished. And I love the [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] spelling rather than [name_m]Layton[/name_m] or [name_m]Lleyton[/name_m]. [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] doesn’t have that “trendy feel” which I get more from [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] and [name_u]Addison[/name_u]. I’ve known far too many nasty Ashleys over the years to like that name anymore and [name_u]Addison[/name_u] only makes me think of the disease.

[name_u]Leighton[/name_u]. I want to use this, but in the states it’s gone to the girls…not sure where you are but I would definitely pick [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] of the three

All of them are very girly so I wouldn’t use any of them. I voted for [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] because it’s the least feminine sounding.

I prefer [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] because as pp said it’s the least feminine sounding.

[name_u]Ashley[/name_u] might be dated on ladies, but I would love to meet a boy [name_u]Ashley[/name_u]! It seems handsome and vintage.

If you like unisex, would you consider [name_u]Emerson[/name_u], [name_u]Elliot[/name_u], or [name_u]Mirren[/name_u]? For me, all your picks are girls’ names – especially [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] and [name_u]Addison[/name_u]. Also, I adore nns, and that leaves you with [name_f]Addy[/name_f] – which seems to me very girly girl indeed.

Have you considered [name_u]Ashton[/name_u]? It seems more boy than girl although it has that unisex charm…

Addisonnnnnn! My own name is [name_u]Ashley[/name_u], so while I would like to see it on a boy, at the same time it feels a little bit weird (although I would love to see boys take it over again, and [name_u]Ash[/name_u] and [name_u]Lee[/name_u] are great nns!). [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] has this dashing, southern-gentleman sort of feel to it. (Probably thanks to the Gone with the Wind association–although I’ve never actually read the book/watched the movie, and I don’t even know what the plot is about, so I have no clue if [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] [name_m]Wilkes[/name_m] was dashing and gentlemanly or not!) I love [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] for a boy–I think it’s preppy and great fun–but I just like [name_u]Addison[/name_u] more. [name_f]LOVE[/name_f] [name_u]Addison[/name_u] for a boy. So, so, so much.

[name_u]ASHLEY[/name_u]! I had to yell it :stuck_out_tongue: I love it on a boy so much. It’s so tired on girls. I’m so sick of seeing [name_u]Ashley[/name_u]/[name_f]Ashlee[/name_f]/[name_f]Ashleigh[/name_f]/[name_f]Ashlie[/name_f] etc (no offense [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] right above me).

And I think you might like to know that I know a male [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] (I know a good many men with women names or very old male names like this). I don’t know his middle name, but his older brother is [name_m]Darius[/name_m] and his younger sister is [name_f]Isidora[/name_f]. No nicknames for [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] or [name_f]Isidora[/name_f] and [name_m]Darius[/name_m] goes by Dare.
