When i was younger i was too happy about having that name since its so common and also you dont see many latinas with that name (no offense to anyone) but when my teachers used to say my name o the first day of school they were suprised to see i was hispanic. as i grew i learned to love my name it was special to me because my dad named me and passed away when i was 2 yrs of age. . when i got pregnant i decided to give my daughter a diff name something no so common! so i put my mother's first name and my name together and got a unique and special name my lil princess name is Anashley and i love it soooo much when people hear it they say wow its diff and pretty it fits her and shes three now and say i love my name!

3/4/2023 5:15:02 PM

I have a daughter named Ashley who loves her name. She has just turned 11 years old. I fell in love with this beautiful name when I was a little girl, long before it was popular as a girl's name. Anyone who's read my late cousin Margaret Mitchell's novel "Gone With the Wind" (or have seen'the movie) are familiar with the character of Ashley Wilkes and remember that long ago this was a "boy's name." But I knew of one girl when I was growing up with this name and thought it would be beautiful for a girl. So many, many years later after getting married and having a little boy named Shane, I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl that was named "Ashley Nicole". I thought the name was wonderful all those years ago and still do.

2/24/2023 10:20:14 PM

My baby girl is named Ashley and I always get lots of compliments. Don't know a lot of new Ashley's being born these days.

2/23/2023 5:14:32 PM

My daughter's middle name is Ashley (after my sister)... I love the name, although I think it is better as a middle name (sounds great with almost every first name)... Ashley is very common as a first name. Our daughter's first name is not common, so It'sounds really beautiful combined with Ashley for a middle name.

2/20/2023 3:46:12 PM

I don't dislike my name, but I absolutely hate how common it is. Including me, there are four Ashleys and one Ashlyn in my geometry class...

2/18/2023 11:12:48 PM

Ashley. Ugh!! Waaaaaay to common. My parents were so original since I was born in 2004 and that's when'the name was at It's height. There are 6 other ashleys in my pe class which is we all go by code names (Ashley blue, Ashley red, ashley orange...) ;]

2/17/2023 5:49:28 PM

My daughter's name is Ashley Elisabeth. The name Elisabeth is Ashley's Grandma's name. I think the name is a bubbly name and all the other Ashley's I know have a bubbly personality. Cool!

my name is Ashley Elizabeth, i was born in 2009. my middle name after my Grandmother. when people say actually or something that'sounds like Ashley, i always look up and say what?! it gets conusing. i never really liked my name. i always wished my name was Elizabeth Ashley. or at least a less common spelling, like, Ashliegh. i love that way of spelling it. but i've grown to like Ashley. (:

2/4/2023 12:22:30 AM

1/28/2023 11:46:54 PM

1/27/2023 2:49:00 AM

my name is ashlt and the reason i think that is special is b/c i have only ever met one other person who spells it that may, my grandma also told me that when ashley was a popular name for boys, that when a boy would be named ashly is was ashley and a girls would be ashly... im a girl haha for you with the e, plus, it makes more sense gramatically without the e..i love my name even'tho it is wayyyy too popular

My name is Ashley. I love my name, but yes its verry common. My mom was origionally going to name me Laken, which Isn't common at all! and My dad wanted Gwendolyn, which is also not common. But no, I get stuck with the name everyone has. But because it is so common, i think if you named your baby Ashley now, it wouldnt be so bad because people are naming the new generation some wild names!

I once had a chance to change my name, but i just thought of how many times i would probably misspell my name! So Ashley it was!!;)

I was born in 1997 and my mom had never heard anyone named ashley and thought it would be original! HA! she was wrong. She thought about naming me amber...kinda wish she had. Growing up there were always at least 3 other ashleys in my class. i wish people would stop using that name'so it might become original again one day! spelling it a different way doesn't make it different either!

12/5/2022 1:09:06 PM

I'm Ashley Ann. I love my name. It's pretty common. But I'm the only Ashley in my school, and I think the'spelling A-S-H-L-E-Y is best. I was born in '92, and my dad came up with it. I'm glad I was Ashley Ann instead of Ashley Marie. I hate the name Marie, and even'though my name is common, I know there's no other Ashley quite like me. (:

11/27/2022 3:15:00 AM

10/17/2022 4:46:46 AM

My name is Ashley and about 90% of the time I hate it, though I've never tried to change it. Ashley was the number one female name of my birth year and it was top five around it for the next several years. The worst part is sitting in class with multiple Ashley's who get in trouble frequently so when the teacher chastises the other Ashley's you feel you are the one in trouble. There's about a billion names out there...get a little more creative...oh and NEVER nickname them Ash. It really annoys me to be called Ash, mostly because I am not the main character from Pokemon. -Ashley Rose

10/16/2022 3:47:56 AM

10/1/2022 2:01:18 AM

Young is a last name and It's my last name. You can clearly tell by this chart no one should being using this name as a first or middle. Unless of course, you want to be the nut to call your kid a name that hasn't been used in over 100 years.

9/30/2022 3:08:52 PM

When my daughter was a little girl, she use to say, "I hate my name. There is no one older than me with the name of Ashley." Now, that she has finally become 21 years old, she has met many females older than herself and appreciate the name. My late husband and I picked the name Ashley 22 yrs ago (I was 18 yrs old and my husband was 25 yrs old at the time)fell in love with the name Ashley. If our child was a boy, his name was Ben Ashston, and of course the girl's name was Ashley. I agree with Afia Thompson's post the name Ashley is equal to a regal lady. An example of this was when my husband died, our daughter Ashley with tears in her eyes and a heavy heart was able to complete funeral arrangements as I broke down. I could not have continued without our daughter. At a young age, Ashley was and still is a female of noble strength courage and intelligence (she graduated from high school early {Ben was fortunate to see her graduate, and is now in medical school).

9/29/2022 5:41:38 PM

My name is Ashley Dawn, I was born in 2009. I absolutely, postively, 100%, LOATHE my name. i've always hated my name, for as long as I can remember. My dad wanted to name me Lilliana.

9/14/2022 3:02:06 PM

I have grown to dislike this name. It is so common and I know of at least thirty other Ashley's. My name is Ashley, so it gets very, very annoying. I always had to use my initial so teache's could distinguish between me and the other Ashley's. Whenever I walked down the hallways of school, there was always a Ashley being called, and I always ignored it. My mother could of named be Rhea, a uncommon name compared to Ashley, but of course she had to pick the most common name during the 80's. I also hate how people stereotype this name! Not every Ashley is blonde and a cheerleader or stuck up! People, a recommendation. Wait at least another twenty years and probably named your kid Ashley!

I'm an Ashley - I love my name. When I was 8, I'moved to England - here for some reason people thinks its a boys name - so I hated it. But now I know its actually a GIRLS name, I'm proud to be an Ashley! I was too was born in 85 (someone else said it above me - or below, dont know how this site works...) So yeah... I love my name!!

8/30/2022 1:08:42 PM

My name is Ashley Sara, and i've always loved my initials, A.S.H. I was born in 1987 and could NEVER find my name on anything. It was very uncommon at that time, at least where I was going to school. I like to think that when I'm old, at least my name will still sound young.

8/29/2022 3:17:24 AM

A plain and ordinary name that doesn't sound very good, either.

8/26/2022 2:05:24 AM

i love this name! you are all just super jealous! bet you rname is something weird like shaki!*jk!

8/22/2022 12:59:42 PM

Wazz up? My name is Maggie but I hate it when people think that my real name is Margaret. I also dont like it when people call me maggot. I also like the meaning of my name pearl;of great value because my daddy said im worth a lot of money. Maggie is unique and not very common so thats why i like it 1

Well ya.. everyone spells my name: Gabriela.. and I get mad because.. u know its GabrieLLa. i've never met someone with the name with double "L".. but yes with one "L". And u dont usually her my name in my country so I was surprised when I saw that the High School Musical's Gabriella Montez had the'same name.. it was really cool :P

7/22/2022 3:02:06 AM

It would be a nice name if every 99 out of 100 girls weren't named this name. I'm so fortunate I wasn't named Ashley. My name is much, much rarer.

7/15/2022 8:58:30 PM

There should and always will be one Jesus. Do not name your child Jesus. It is a nice name, but there should be only one.

7/14/2022 11:55:48 PM

7/6/2022 3:32:42 PM

7/3/2022 6:00:18 PM

6/27/2022 2:47:42 AM

My name is Ashley, just like EVERYONE else's name is Ashley. It's FAR too common. It confuses me when people say "Ashley!" and five or six girls turn around. I like the name, but I don't enjoy the popularity of the name.

6/25/2022 11:20:42 PM

most people say it correctly. my bffs name is ashley too. some peple spell it ashely or ashlee.

6/11/2022 5:14:24 AM

5/28/2022 10:00:36 AM

I think the name "Ashley" is classic and trendy, and why is popular and common bad, that just means alot of people like it, period.

5/5/2022 3:45:18 PM

My name is Ashley and I like it, even'though there is like 2 or 3 other girls with the name of Ashley in my school I still like it!!

4/23/2022 5:27:54 AM

My name is Ashley Marie. It can't get more common than that. I was born in 2008. i've actually learned to tune people out when'they say my name just to avoid the awkwardness of it not being me they meant since it happens so often. Stop being selfish parents and name your child something original instead of something you just think is pretty. It doesn't even have a pretty meaning. if I have a girl in

4/14/2022 5:25:12 PM

2/21/2022 1:42:00 PM

My name is pretty cool! You got to admit. It's probably the most popular name ever. It means "my fire"!

2/17/2022 8:08:06 AM

2/12/2022 2:40:30 PM

well im called kayleigh and i guess its pretty different, i cant find a meaning for it anywhere (anyone help?) plus i can never find personalised stationary haha but apart from that aye its not bad the pronunciation isnt too nice though, i wish it could be varied like laura (law - rah, lara, etc... =P )

There is a residental street in Stuart, Martin County, Florida named "Ila Street" in 1925 for a baby born to a family who lived in the neighorhood. The'street is still there.

2/6/2022 4:57:18 AM

I love the name ashley because of its origin, i think it is a populer name but everyone remebers it!

2/2/2022 5:41:24 PM


1/31/2022 9:46:12 PM

I absolutely love it! It is so pretty, and yea, its popular because of this. I ask, how can you not like this beautiful name?

1/28/2022 5:49:30 PM

When I was little, I used to hate my name, because it was so different from everyone else's... it wasn't Cris, or Nick, or Mike. Now, however, I wouldn't want a different name! I love how while there are other Nathans out there, we're still pretty few-and-far-between, and consequently, I am rarely confused with anybody else. Most people just call me Nate, which is pretty easy to remember, and hard to mess-up. One thing I hate, however, is how some people INSIST that my full name must really be Nathaniel... well, It's not! It's just Nathan. Anyway, the worst was when somebody asked me if "Nate" was short for: "Nath-ahh-neel." Classic.

1/23/2022 2:24:18 AM

yes my name is brian and i like it alot. ive never nad anyone mispronounce it. and i do know alot of people named brian. there are 6 brians on my street

12/29/2021 2:09:54 AM

Yeah my name is Ayla And it is soo cool. I have only met one other girl named Ayla my parents got my name off of the mobie Clan Of the Cave bears. Chea!!!

12/17/2021 9:15:36 AM

Although I agree that the "Ashley" is a very common name I still love it because my mom decided to make an original name'somewhat unique, she'spelled my name "Ashleigh" and I love it!

12/11/2021 7:46:30 AM

My name is Ashley...and I have not only looked at the popularity rating given here, but also in records that I work with most often...and you can bet if you come across the name Ashley...not all, but most of these females were probably born between '85 and '89. For some reason the late eighties tended to make this name a trend. Everyone wanted to name their babies Ashley. I was born in 86...I like the name, but as stated previously by othe's, its pretty common...having had three or four friends in my life named Ashley...

12/9/2021 12:52:30 AM


12/6/2021 1:24:00 PM

My Name is Ashley and thats the only reason im okay with it

12/6/2021 11:34:12 AM

I'm proud of my name. And for some odd reason, I love hearing Scarlett O'Hara say it in "Gone with the Wind." I love it as both a boy's and girl's name, and I think more boys should be named Ashley.

12/1/2021 9:52:30 AM

well, i love my name, because its spelt differently . im somewhat heartbroken, to see that there are so many other hailee's with the'same spelling. well i guess im original still.. just not by name. so to all you hailee's .. keep on rockin' the world .. one hailee at a time.

11/22/2021 7:11:24 AM

Don't name your child Ashley. And don't do any of those cutesy spellings that make it more "unique" because when it comes right down to it, Ashley (or Ashlee, Ashlea, Ashleigh or any other butchering you can think of) is the most bland and common name available. You may think it's pretty but there is nothing more annoying than sitting in a classroom with five other Ashleys of various spellings, wishing your name was in some way or another different from the majority. If you really MUST get this god awful name on your child's birth certificate at least make it hyphenated with something that sucks less or as a middle name. Trust me on this one. Almost all of my friends say that Ashley doesn't fit me in any way and is so common and boring that they just call me by my last name or "Ash" - which, by the way, has also been ruined by Pokemon. Do your kid a favor and just avoid it all together. Oh, Marie as a middle name is way over used. Stop it.

11/15/2021 11:18:00 PM

I was born in 1997, after a character in my mothe's favorite story 'gone with the wind' (the character is a guy but she loved It'so much) - I do not dislike the name, except when people say the word 'actually' - I respond to that a lot if people do not enunciate..

11/7/2021 1:11:24 AM

My name's Ashley Jane, just like someone up there ^^ haha But I guess I loveeed my name when I was little but now I kinda don't like it because there are like 4 Ashley's in every class. It's a bit over'sed but apparently people find it a beautiful name. (:

11/3/2021 4:46:30 AM

I'm Ashlee-Marie and I absolutely LOVE my name I'm the only Ashlee in my class but it does get confusing when someone says actually

9/6/2021 7:48:18 AM

My name's Ashley, and I absolutely hate it. I think of myself as a very original person, and my name pretty much takes away from my originality. I know 8 other ashleys, and it gets me so annoyed.

8/28/2021 6:57:00 AM

My names Ashley, i prefer Ashlee. I never think too much about my name, tho it is very common. im 18 and have always known at least 3 other ashleys in my class. my middle name is anne, which is even more common. (ashley anne).

7/15/2021 6:01:12 PM

My name is Ashley and every single one I have met is pretty. It'sounds very classy. No one has ever misspelled my name(you would think with so many people thinking it is popular they woud have it down by now, right????). This was definitely an 80's name. My mom chose well.

7/7/2021 9:38:06 AM

I like it even'though in 4th grade there was 3 other people named Ashley. it kind of got confusing. but we all hang out and our classmates would call us the ashley club
