Just when I thought we were set on a name dh throws a curve ball!

Apparently he was signing Xavier into preschool and noticed that 2 girls in his class were named Peyton. So now he thinks we should make Peyton her middle name (he loves the name just isn't sure he wants it as a first name). Now he's throwing things up in the air like Gabriell - problem I have is this could get mistaken as the boys name.

I guess it's back to the drawing board for me...

I love the name Peyton! However there is nothing wrong with a "unisex" name. (My name is Shawn )

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!

I like the name Peyten.

Good Luck with your names. I know it is hard to come up with one you both like.

We're going through the same thing - can't agree on anything, but a popular name - Lily. We'll get there though. I suggested to my DH Gabriella and we could call her Ella for short. Not sure if he's into it or not though...

I love the name Payton. I think that if you really love you should go for it. Besides the kids in your son's preschool class will be in grade school by the time your dd will be in preschool. Good luck deciding.

There will always be someone who has the same name. If they're not close friends, etc I would name her that anyway.

Olivia is a very popular name but we have yet to meet one in real person in our circle of friends and acquaintances.

I like the idea of Gabriella

I also would think twice about using a name that was really popular in my area

I like the name Peyton! Who cares if a couple other kids have it? Someone is ALWAYS going to have the same name...unless you do something stupid and name your kid xyz. LOL

We're naming our little one Peyton.

It's not too popular around here, but popular enough that I'm sure that she will be a "Peyton C." in one of her classes. I'm a Sarah from the 80's and I always swore that I would never, ever, name my child something that was overly popular. My daughter is named Charly, lol!

But we like the name so much that we decided that we will just name her Peyton, and then suck up the fact that it is popular. It's not as popular as Emma, but it's still pretty popular.

So I think you should decide. Do you like it enough for your daughter to have a popular name, are you willing to have "another" Peyton? Or would it bother you a lot that her name isn't unique, and it really is back to the drawing board?
A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the
present, and the hope and promise of the future.

I agree that Peyton is also a boy's name......my son's name is Peyton. I am sure that he will go to school with girls and boys with his name.

If you like the name and it feels right, I say go with it and don't worry about the popularity of it.
