    I didn't believe her at first, until she showed me the school yearbook.

    Why do people do this?!
    My sister goes to school with a pair of b/g twins named Lorick and Lorika.

    The first time I saw Ashleigh I liked it, because I was getting bored seeing Ashley everywhere. Now, guess what? We have Ashleigh and Everleigh and Brynleigh and Kaleigh...I guess it was a mistake to even begin.

    That's funny because in the UK Ashleigh is the most common spelling for girls, Ashley is usually used for boys. All the Ashleigh's I know are female and spelt this way (with the exception of an Ashlea) and any Ashley's I know of are male.

    Aha! I wish we had that distinction here. Maybe then Ashley would still be acceptable for boys in the U.S. I've been thrilled to meet three male Ashleys (one, admittedly, was South African and lived in England), but they were all over 30.

    Yiiikes, I definitely read it as "kayley" and "keeley," those poor girls will be correcting the pronunciation and spelling of those names for the rest of their lives.

    I went to school with identical twins named Eric and Derek and I thought that was way too similar.
