Comments for ASHLEIGH:

I like this spelling on a female. Ashley was originally a man's name until people decided they liked Ashley on a girl too. It feels refreshing to meet females that spell their name Ashleigh and/or Ashlee.

I love this name. It was the name of one of my best friends who had lukemia. It will always make me think of a very strong, brave, happy girl.

I personally like this spelling of the name better than any of the others. It sounds more feminine. Also, it looks cool.

Now really, how overdone can one name get?
-- Anonymous User  7/27/2006
I prefer this variation over the original Ashley. It looks more feminine, and also looks cool.

I abominate this name, it is way overused. It's a nice name but it's been ruined by over use. Sad lol.

I've seen this used on males many times. I don't know what makes it anymore female than the original.

This is my first name, and it drives me crazy. It's better than the Ashley spelling, which to me sounds outright ditzy, but it's obnoxious having every single person you know spell your name wrong, even your relatives. It's also awful when everyone makes a big fuss about it. "A-S-H-L-E-Y" Actually, that's A-S-H-L-E-I-G-H. "A-S-L-E whata?" ASHLEIGH. "Whoah. How do you pronounce that? Isn't that like Ashligg or something? What country are you from? Why would your parents name you something like that? Dadadadada."
Ayayay.

OMG this post is the story of my life as an Ashleigh. So true. I like my name and much prefer it over Ashley but people are super quick to write it out the most common way that I end up always having a "y" marked out, then an "ie" marked out to finally bring forth what I'm actually saying "eigh." I have had a handful of "Ashlegg?" from alleged English speaking people and honestly can't hold my laughter in. Leigh is clearly and consistently pronounced as "Lee" throughout the history of the English language. So in that case, I let them call me whatever they want. My grandpa never spelled my name right and my grandmother initially told everyone I was "Ash Leigh Anne," Leigh Anne being my mother's name :) In conclusion, I like my name and people are funny.

Hate this spelling with a passion. My name is Ashley and I kind of like the original spelling more than this made up long version. The only reason it was probably created was just to make Ashley a feminine name. People, leave names like they are originally, it just looks idiotic like this.

I don't see why everyone hates this name, or at least the spelling. It's my favorite way to spell Ashley. I've had bad experiences with Ashley's and Ashlee's. No offense.
-- melinda1  3/29/2007
I prefer the spelling Ashlee as the girl version of the name while the spelling Ashley as the version of the name for boys.
-- Luangi  4/8/2007
I don't think this spelling makes Ashley more feminine. All surnames sound better on boys, IMO.

Never really was a fan of this name until I saw this spelling, now I think it's a beautiful name. I want to name my daughter Ashleigh Rae.
-- gracielou16  5/24/2007
I love the spelling of Ashleigh better than Ashley, or Ashlee.
-- french88diamond  7/19/2007
I MUCH prefer the spelling Ashley. If a name ends in the "lee" sound, I prefer "ley". I'm not a fan of any spelling of any name that ends in "leigh".
-- Brianna Angela  7/20/2007
Beautiful name, my only princess its called Ashleigh and everyone comments on what a lovely choice of name and spelling! ASHLEIGH I love it!
-- AFCgirly  8/1/2007
Once upon a time, a baby's mother asked the father what her name should be. Suddenly, he threw up his intestines and died, his last word being "Ashleighghfgdhsbutueuea". In honor of her late husband, she named her child Ashleighghfgdhsbutueuea, which was shortened to Ashleigh.
Why others used this ridiculous name, I DON'T KNOW. SOMEONE TELL ME WHY.
-- Anonymous User  8/12/2007
I love this name! I like it a lot better than the other version of the name, like Ashley or Ashlee. I don't care about "leaving the name how it was in the first place," I just like this way.
-- an0nymous  11/8/2007
It looks more sophisticated than Ashley, but it's pronounced just the same. Leigh is an old-fashioned, but classier way to spell Lee, but I doubt the -ley in Ashley has anything to do with the name Lee/Leigh. With this spelling, the pronunciation should actually be ''ASH-lee'' instead of the usual ''ASH-li'', that is, with a long ''ee'' sound at the end, but that would sound weird. So, the spelling is a bit pretentious, and it's not really true to the pronunciation, so why bother? This is still just another variant.
-- slight night shiver  5/15/2008
I'm not quite sure what slight_night_shiver is talking about, but Ashleigh, Ashlee, and Ashley have always been pronounced as Ash-lee (with a long 'e' sound), not Ash-li.
-- wichita_falconer  8/15/2008
Ok my name is ASHLEIGH! Sometimes I would rather be dead than have the name, just kidding. A name is a name dude, you pop out of your mummy and well they give you a name, so why would you make fun of someone's name, they didn't choose to have it. A lot of people don't understand. If you don't like someone's name make fun of the parents for being stupid enough to give their kids a stupid name.

I think Ashleigh is an awesome name and it is the best way to spell it. I wouldn't want it any other way!

Ashleigh Griffen is the name of the original main character in the series "Thoroughbred". She falls in love with a horse called Wonder, and ends up owning the horse, getting married to her high-school sweetheart Mike, and having a daughter named Christina. In the later books, the focus switches from adult Ashleigh to her teenage daughter Christina and her friends.

I love this name! It's a lot nicer than Ashley, and it seems more girlie. Ashleigh is really pretty!
-- LilSingstarEeyore  1/14/2009
Never liked having Leigh stuck on to the end of a perfectly normally spelled name. Though I dislike Ashley, due to the sound, I can't stand Ashleigh at all. It looks too long and unnecessary, and for some reason the Leigh at the end makes me feel like it should be pronounced Ash-LEEEE.
-- emmiix3  2/28/2009
I think this spelling of Ashley is one of the best. It happens to be my sister's name and she hates it because people never seem to spell it right. But I always say it's a beautiful name and looks much more elegant than Ashley. I feel as though Ashley is a name preppy annoying girls get and the new variation changes that interpretation. Beautiful.

What a stupid and trashy spelling. Don't these people realize that their daughter might want to be something other than a cheerleader or pop singer?
-- bananarama  8/29/2009
Looks like it should be pronounced ASH-lay. I don't like Ashley or any Ashley variants, but I think Ashlea is the best.
-- Anonymous User  7/30/2010
To the person who said my middle name is trashy, that is very hurtful! I love the spelling, and always get compliments. I was never a cheerleader or a pop singer. Maybe you should think of other people before making such a rude, disheartening comment.
-- Oceaneyes22  2/28/2011
My name is Ashley, spelled the proper way. This name is way overused, especially when I was born, and all these tacky spellings just cheapen it further. It looks like the parents wanted to make Ashley less childish and spelled it like this to make it seem more "mature". Kids, be forewarned: Misspelling names doesn't make them unique, only more likely to be confused in the future.
-- sunshinechild67  2/13/2012
I absolutely love the name Ashleigh. It is a great spelling and it's not too common.
-- Liv07  11/26/2012
The name Ashleigh was given to 173 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
-- Oohvintage  7/17/2013
A nice alternative to Ashley, and more mature than Ashlee.
