My last name is postier, and my initials are pkp or pp, so I was bullied, but I'm fine with it

01/14/2024 00:00:00

I'm naming my son Peyton, It's a very strong name :o)

01/14/2024 00:00:00

Everyone thinks that I have a boy, just because I named my daughter Peyton. If they would look closer and realize that her middle name is Gianna, they would clearly see that she is a girl! Now, I did name her after Peyton Mannning though.

01/10/2024 04:54:08

my daughters name is Peighton Alizabeth its just spelled a little different but I like different

01/08/2024 18:31:02

Named my son this and get compliments on it all the time. Only know boy peytons and would not even consider this for a girl so I hope It'stays for the boys. Itsa great name!

I am 6 months pregnant with my 2nd daughter! I picked out the name Peyton because I love the character on One Tree Hill and I've always loved the name Peyton! And I chose Laney for the middle name because I had it picked out for my 1st daughter's name but we ended up naming her Abbigail Lake "Abbi Lake"!!

Such a nice name for a guy. I think it ages well and will be associated with Peyton Manning which is awesome!

10/03/2023 12:27:06

Love this name! Could only see it on a boy but nowadays parents want to give their little girls boy's names - not sure why - if they aren't super pretty it will be a rough road having such a boy name like this. It carries well and everyone will associate It's masculine form and meaning, sounding, and a form of Patrick, and with Peyton Manning and the other famous Peyton's who are all boys. It will stay a strong male name that will sound odd on anyone other than a male.

My son was born in 2016 and we named him Peyton. Men seem to be reminded of the football player Peyton Manning. The name really seems to fit him well.

09/28/2023 02:50:48

Absolutely LOVE this name. It's perfect for our brand new boy on the way.

09/20/2023 04:42:02

I have a beautiful little girl, my husband & I named her "Peyton Ryleigh" It took some convincing on my husbands end, he thought it was just a boy's name, (i.e. Peyton Manning) I love it more as a girls name & not just cause of my daughter :) But it has a great deal of strength behind the name, it's bold & unforgettable...not common although I have notice it becoming more common in girls now a days.

We named our son Phoenix [b. 2016] because we liked the mythical meaning behind the phoenix, a bird who rises out from the ashes. We had a hard time conceiving and It'seemed fitting with our situation. It fits him well...he is one of a kind!!!

My son's name is Peyton. He ended up being teased by some kids on the bus about it, and he wanted to change his name. Then he found out that there's a football player and racecar driver with his name. he's fine with it now.

05/19/2023 15:21:42

Love the name, such a great name for a boy. It really is only suited for a boy could not imagine this on a girl but a nice solid name for a boy! Everyone thinks of Peyton Manning :)

04/12/2023 15:13:46

my youngest is Peytan spelled differently. Peytan is actually a boy and girl name you will find it in many baby name books located under both genders. PE is feminie and PA is masculine, sorry Peyton Manning, but you name is spelled the feminine way. I did an at the end because of the spelling of her sisters name is the only reason. She is Peytan Elyse. I wanted Elizabeth, but way too long with a last name like our. Her name suits her perfectly.

My husband and I saw the movie THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE when we were dating and fell in love with the name of the killer-Peyton. Luckily my daughter has not turned into a killer.

02/05/2023 17:31:10

Such a handsome name I love it! A great name for a boy but only a boy! I would cringe if I heard this on a girl.

12/16/2022 16:00:10

Solely a boys name where I am from and have seen it quite a bit. Many sports fans and see all ages from Little boys to grown men with the name. People would cringe to see it on a female and I am considering this name for my son I really love it. I think It's strong and ages well

07/19/2021 13:31:12

Our 17th month old son is named Peyton and we get tons of compliments. Most older people think of the'soap opera "Peyton's Place." Other's I'mediately ask my husband or I if we named him after Peyton Manning.
