I love the name Oakley but both me & DF cant decide which gender it belongs to.
Theres a poll above.


Also I was wondering if you could tell me on how to prn. Aiko?
Me & my DF love the meaning of it & quite like the look but cant decide on how it should be prn.

I think Oakley would work well for both genders! It's masculine but would be adorable on a little girl.

eta: I believe Aiko is pronounced something like, "ah-ee-ko", but said quickly, kinda sluring the sounds together-ish, since vowels don't get blended together. It can also be pronounced eye-ko, which has become a more standard pronunciation.

I know it's probably unisex, but Oakley sounds like a girl's name to me. And I'm not sure how to pronounce Aiko! The suggestion above sounds right, but I would have probably guessed AY'-ko

I consider Oakley a girls name, because the only time I heard it was someone on JM with a little girl named Oakley. I like it.

I'd pronounce Aiko eye-ko.

I can't decide.. it seems too feminine to be a boys name but too masculine to be a girls name ...

I'd say ay (like the letter A) - coe

I think Oakley sounds like a boy name, like Oak is big and strong.

Oakley- either gender. I can't decide which it suits best.

Aiko- never heard of it, but from the loots of it I'd pronouce it eye-ko.

To me Oakley is a unisex name. I would pronounce Aiko like IKE-OH.
