WDYT of Peyton for a girl? Has been growing on me lately.

MeantToStopAtTwo Mon 23-May-11 13:39:26

Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan. Peyton Place is the first thing that springs to mind.

flopsy1974 Mon 23-May-11 13:45:20

Not keen at all. Sorry

iskra Mon 23-May-11 14:27:06

Peyton & Byrne.

BatFlattery Mon 23-May-11 14:28:54

Awful, sorry.

Makes me think of Oliver Peyton, and there also is an American football star named Peyton Manning. So it doesn't strike me as a girl's name, or even as a neutral name.

I like it & think of it more as a girls name than a boys name.

It would be on my list for a girl although my dh isn't keen on it.

daisybear Mon 23-May-11 14:41:44

personally think its awful....sorry!

pinkhebe Mon 23-May-11 14:42:28

wasn't she a character in 'one tree hill'?

EricNorthmansMistress Mon 23-May-11 16:17:34

Like in One Tree Hill? Ugh. It's a surname. Surnames as first names are bad enough for boys but awful for girls.

I know a boy Peyton. Not my cup of tea personally, but it's your child. If you like it enough go for it.

TBH, I didn't like the name we used for DD that much to start with and it grew on me. Once she was born, there was no better name for her.

It's a ghastly name.

DELHI Mon 23-May-11 17:30:12

Have to agree with the general consensus. Reminds me of Paige - another awful name IMO

Pancakeflipper Mon 23-May-11 17:35:07

No. I love the novel Peyton Place but it sounds a little chav to my ears as a name.

virginiasmonalogue Mon 23-May-11 17:36:58

I really like it, but thought it was Payton?

NettoSuperstar Mon 23-May-11 17:38:19

Horrid, reminds me of the nanny in 'The hand that rocks the cradle'.

mathanxiety Mon 23-May-11 17:38:35

Yuck. And yes, it reminds me of Paige too.

mathanxiety Mon 23-May-11 17:39:34

Though I sort of like Presley for a girl. <irrational>

FessaEst Mon 23-May-11 17:43:12

Netto beat me to it, I immediately thought of that film - not a good association I'm afraid!

MeantToStopAtTwo Mon 23-May-11 21:17:35

Reminds me of Paige too. And of Courtney. It's one of 'those' names.

No no no

shoobidoo Tue 24-May-11 09:41:31

I've not heard it before. Sounds a little masculine perhaps.
