What is your guy's opinion on the name Oakley for a girl?

I don't really like Oakley for a girl, although it does remind me of Annie Oakley which is awesome. But this is one of those names that seems too "last name-ish" to be a girl's or a boy's name.

I don't like it for a girl at all. I'm not even sure I like it for a boy. It's very last nameish to me.

Its alright to me, acceptable for a first name. I knew a man named Oakleigh and thought it should have been a girls name

It's a surname that I can't really see liking as a first name.

I like it, but it seems a bit more masculine to me.

NMS! Only Oakley I heard was on a boy and I wasn't even a fan of that.

Sorry but I don't like it at all. I adopted a dog once who came with the name Oakley & I immediately changed it.

I can't imagine it on a child because that is what I named my sisters dog. They are very athletic and she (the dog) is named after the Oakley brand.

I don't like it for a girl.
1) It's too masculine sounding.
2) It's too surname-ish.
3) It's a famous brand.

I don't care for it. It doesn't seem like a first name to me.

Late to the game but I think it sounds boyish. A friend from high school named her son Oakley Ryan

I love it!

I think Oakley is more for a boy and Oakleigh is more for a girl.

I like it! Granted, I tend to lean toward very masculine names for girls, my first daughter's name is Emerson... Oakley is actually on my short list for our little girl due 1/1/12!

I love Oakley, and see as a tree name, in the order of ASH ley and Bay lee.
