    Ainsley?

    I was wondering if the name Ainsley sounds pretty for a girl. I love the south and southern names, but is this one a little too outdated?

    I think of the male chef, Ainsley Harriott. I can't see it on a girl. I don't even like it on a boy. It's too surnamey for me.

    All the Ainsleys I've met have been girls so it definitely sounds girly to me. I don't think it sounds dated either. It seems to fit in well with popular names while still being different. I like it!

    This sounds more like a girls name to me, but I don't have any prior associations with the name. I think it's beautiful!!

    To me Ainsley is a boys name. However, sound wise it wouldn't feel odd on a girl.
