    For my sister-in-law it was very important to her that her kids' names were common enough to find on plastic novelties and classic enough to not become "Grandma names". She used the SSA list to find...

    I've some "oh, that's.... nice?" reactions to friends and family's choices but nothing like Mykynleigh. I'm not sure I'd be able to stay polite if I was caught off guard with that. On the other hand,...

    I've only known one male Ashley. He's about 30 and loves his name. If you were super concerned about it you could use Asher Lee and call him Ashley as a nickname.
