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.

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.

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"!!
my youngest girl

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.
for a boy or a girl

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.
