I LOVE this name for a boy.

Very strongly dislike this name, but I prefer it on a boy than on a girl. Waaay to masculine for a girl (imo)!

Oakley - boy || Oakleigh - girl :)

I think Oakley fits right in with current modern day, what with the nature name and surname-name trends. The image of a strong oak tree and the breezy -ley sound makes me think of leaves rustling in the wind and sitting beneath an oak tree for shade on a lovely summer's day, cloudgazing and savoring life. Oakley sounds truly gender neutral to me, and I like it equally on both boy and girl (on a girl, the Annie Oakley association gives it more of a trailblazer adventurous feel).
