I have a cousin named Oakley Jacob - it's actually who my Jake is named after.
I think Oakley is cute it's better then Oakland to me.

I slightly prefer Oakley and think it could work on a boy or a girl...I'd probably use it on a girl. I think Oakland is a boy...if you wanted to make it a girl maybe Oaklyn? I probably wouldn't use either.

There used to be someone who posted here a long time ago with a little girl named Oakley. I think its cute but not something I'd used personally.

I don't really care for Oakland. It makes me think of a sports team.

I'd see it more as a boys name..

I could never use it because it's verrrry close to my surname

I don't like non gender-specific names in general.
