Gender: M Meaning of Ashley: "dweller near the ash tree meadow" Origin of Ashley: English

Even if it started as a strictly male name, when a name has been on the girls' most-popular list for decades, it becomes somewhat more difficult for a boy to carry, despite the lingering memory of the sensitive Ashley Wilkes in Gone With the Wind. Some alternatives are Ash, Asher and Ashton.
