Can you name a boy "Ashley"?

I once knew a guy name "Seymour Ashley" but he wasn't from here not here in the states.

  • I wouldn't. Here in the US, the name is most exclusively female.

  • i knew a guy names ashley. Everyone called him Ash. I don't really like the name for a girl or guy though, but that is just my opinion.

  • Sure, but they might get picked on. I have heard of a few men named Ashley.

  • yes, and you can also name a boy courtney or allison. my daughter is named alison after my dad's middle name. he was named allison after a guy my grandpa fought in the war with. i don't see the sense in naming a boy a name usually thought of as a 'girl name'. seems like you're sentencing him to a childhood of getting beat up or picked on lol. well maybe the middle name would be better than the first name though lol

  • Its a very southern name... I'm from Savannah. Went to school with boys named Ashley, Leslie, Shelly.
    Ashley was one Scarlett O'Hare's beaux in Gone with the Wind, remember? Think "southern sophisticate"
    Of course, you might want to dress him in seersucker all the time too, to keep up the image.
