I'm due dc 3 in aug and my 3 year old daughter is convinced its going to be called Oakley. I didn't even think the name existed until I read another thread here about new born baby names! Is it a boy or girls name?

Tree, dog or sunglasses. Boy at a push, if I had to choose.

It's a sunglasses name, I'm afraid.

A tree on a cbeebies programme. Not a person name.

I agree with other posters - tree, glasses or dog.

Sunglasses, otherwise pretty gender neutral

Please don't.

Ski goggles. Definitely not a child.

I know a boy called Oakley. His brother is called Keanu. HTH

A rabbit. There is a collection of Oakley the rabbit books. He is male.

Dog. Then if I had to say boy/girl, well boy I suppose.

It's the name of a road on a new-build executive home estate. Veto!

Boy, but awful. I would put it in the same category as Riley etc.

When I was a kid, Oakley was this moose-thing. www.flickr.com/photos/61544061@N04/7395142572/

My sister had one. I thought it was creepy.

Sunglasses.

Sunglasses, but other than that a boys name. I don't hate it, but I wouldn't use it. I dont like it enough.
