Popularity: this week.

Peyton is a unisex surname that's not only survived but continues to grow in popularity because of its rich southern-accented softness combined with the pre-Desperate Housewives naughtiness of Peyton Place. In recent years, more boys have been named Peyton thanks to football star Peyton Manning, but the upcoming film of William Styron's Lie Down in Darkness which features heroine Peyton Loftis may further popularize Peyton as a girls' name. Peyton is now just outside the Top 50 for girls and Number 183 for boys, while the alternate Payton girls' version stands at Number 103.
