I know a girl named Paxton... but I don't think it's a very good name for a girl.

Paxton is a great name for a girl. My daughter's name is Paxton and it suits her so well.

Paxton is originally a boys name and is Latin for Peaceful Town.

Girl? How come when parent thinks they are being original half the others name their kid this. By 2010 I reckon it'll be top of the popularity charts in the US, and possibly the UK. American name trends tend to catch on here pretty quickly. Shame, the name no longer is unique and destroys the whole point of the trend, if you see what I mean. Paxton will no longer as be as unique. Jessica anyone?

Paxton is a unisex name but it really is a masculine name. Sadly it seems that whenever people think that a boy name looks good on a girl it automatically becomes unisex. It is rubbish in my opinion. There are so many girls names out there. Don't keep using boy names on girls. It is quite dumb in my opinion. It is not original or creative to do so. It really is equal to naming your little girl Thomas or Harold. You may not think so but the rest of us do. But the masculine name Paxton is very nice and I quite like it.

I actually love the name Paxton, but you have got to be kidding me about using it on a girl. Why must these "youkneek" parents keep using BOY names on girls? There's plenty of uncommon and interesting girl names to choose from, leave the boy names alone! If you're going to name your girl Paxton then you might as well name your son Elisabeth in my opinion.

It sounds more like a surname to me, but it's not atrocious as a first name. It sounds like the name of a rather fun young guy, but it's not some type of name of an obnoxious frat boy type like Baxter, Dexter, Corey, Skylar, and such. Not one of my favorites, but okay. It isn't totally infantile on older men either.

My son's name is Paxton and it fits him! His daddy named him after the supercharger engines. Definitely a name best suited for a boy!

I love this name for a boy. I don't think it would suit all boys like names for example Michael or James but Paxton is definitely a nice name. I think of a nice well mannered boy who is fun and just really sweet.

I would assume that this name is related to Pax, meaning "peace" in Latin, and the goddess of peace in Roman mythology. So an easy translation of the full name would be "peaceful town".

The main villain in the video game F.E.A.R is named Paxton Fettle.

Well, I won't kid you at all. I named my daughter back in 1996. I loved the name Paxton and she was going to be Paxton girl or boy. I got the name out of a Danielle steel book where the character was named Paxton Andrews. A female lead. They called her Paxi and Pax. I think it's a great name and we don't know any Paxton females where we live. There is one boy who is much younger named Paxton. I think it's def a cute name for a girl!

I also named my daughter after Paxton (the heroine) of the Danielle Steel novel Message from Nam. My wife and I had the name picked out in 1997 when we listened to the book on audio on a cross country trip. Paxton Andrews is a red headed and blue eyed strong willed lady. Our daughter matched her perfectly. Red haired, blue eyed and strong willed. We could not have picked a more beautiful name

This name could also mean 'from the peaceful town' because 'pax' is the Latin word for peace.

First of all, all of you people that say Paxton is not a girls name make me laugh! Why? Because baby center or some stupid book in the book store or online says Paxton is a boys name, means it's a boys name? Ignorant comments for you to make. My daughters' name is Paxton and we get compliments everywhere we go. This isn't 1920 where you have to name your son Michael and your daughter Jennifer. Get with the times sweetie!

The name Paxton does not inspire me. It seems flat and humdrum.
Francesca  6/19/2014
My 8 yr old daughter is named Paxton, whenever anyone hears her name, they always tell me how beautiful and unique it is, so really it's used as a unisex name.

Sarah Palin's son is named Paxton as well.

My name is Paxton and I'm a girl. My parents found my name from Danielle Steel's book Message from Nam, and that character was also a girl. (For all of you who think it's a boys name). I know I'm biased because it's my name but I think it sounds super feminine and sounds weird on a boy. Also, as for it becoming "common" I have yet to meet someone with the same name, boy or girl. :) Anyways, I love my name.

The girl named Paxton who her parents got the name out of the book "Message from Nam" my parents also got my name out of that book. They did change the spelling however to "Paxston" I have never met anyone with this spelling. I know 3 guys with the name Paxton though. I think this is a unisex name. Everyone I have met loves my name but no one can get the spelling correct.

I know a girl named Paxton and it's a very pretty name, I think!
al84  10/4/2015
Paxton is a cute alternative to similar sounding, more common names (Jackson, Jayden, Jordan, Cameron, etc.). I think it sounds best as a boy name, but could work for a girl, too. Another plus is that pax means peace in Latin.

I'm sorry but this name is really ugly in my opinion and it's horrible on girls. It's way more tolerable for a boy. Paxton is a type of name best left as a surname. For example, James Oliver Paxton or Sarah Jane Paxton. I can't take Paxton used as a first name very seriously at all. It just doesn't look professional or decent.

Actually Paxton is mostly used as a surname. I would know because my surname is Paxton.

Doesn't sound like a girl's name at all. Doesn't matter though because I dislike this name.
