  • I guess it's all up to the person naming the child. My son's nickname is Coty...but most people spell it Cody. :-)

  • I know a guy who's last name is Payton. I think it started out as a surname and someone liked it so much, they used it as a first name. I think it is acceptable either way. There are so many names that sound absolutely ridiculous and I think this one is far from that. I do think it sounds more masculine, but so does Reagen, and apparently, parents are naming their daughters that . . . . so, many names have become unisex. Either way, this name is far from outlandish, and it will grow with your child without all the "talk" and snickers!

  • Many names are being spelled different ways nowadays. The name Peyton reminds me of a show or book called "Peyton Place" that my friend liked many years ago. Never saw or read it myself, though.

  • Peyton Place was like an adult saop...a show of who was screwing that is what I think of when I hear the name. To each their own though...names these days take on all kinds of meaning and either gender depending on mom. I am sure our G-ma's would think what we are named was weird compared to back in their day.
