I saw a kid on TV with this name and had to put closed captioning on to see what the name actually was because it sounded like everybody was saying "act-in". I assume it sounds better with clear enunciation.

I thought that Afton was a Swedish masculine name meaning 'afternoon' or 'evening'. It sounds awful on a girl IMO.
