I am 18 years of age and as a small child I did not like my name. As I became older I came to apperciate my name and how unique it was. Also i get a lot of comments like did your mom name you after the car "aston martin".
My precious little girl!

I just thought of Ashton one day. We were trying to choose a name that was closest to my husband's name, who is Ashley. Ashton sounds very distinctive and unique. She is a sweet, little red-headed girl and she knows she is very special. I absolutely love this name for a little girl!

Ashton is my daughter's name..I was a gone with the wind fan and loved Ashley but it was a boys name so I came up with the name Ashton Paige, then North & South came out & the girl was Ashton. She has been the only Ashton I have ever known until Ashton Kutcher came along. My daughter will be 20 in May, She is absolutely beautiful, She has many Ashley friends an enjoys being Different.

My little sister's name is Ashton and she didnt like it when she was young but now she loves it. She's 21 now and has never gone to school with another Ashton so she never had to add her last name she was always just Ashton. Even in her college she is the only Ashton!

Hello Katie,

My name is April Mae. My cousin's name is Ashton.
She is very beautiful, and I think Ashton is the
most beautiful name for a girl. I actually think
Ashton is a terrible boys name, no offense boys.

I Love My Cousin Very Dearly, so Katie, it can be a girls name.

I have always loved the name ashton for a boy. infact thats exactly what i named my first son. that was the only name me and his father could agree on. after picking the name i have heard of so many girls with that name althogh i don't like that my son has a so called unisex name i wouldn't change it for anything.
love this name

i named my son this last year, i love it soo much, when i was pregnant i went over sooo many names but this is the only one that sounded right and stuck! and i feel it suits my boy so well as he has lots of curly hair and just adds to his fantastic character!
This is one of my best friends names, and he is a boy
