Oakley sounds truly gender neutral to me, and i like this equally on both boy and girl, as I said also in the boy comment section. I enjoy the association with nature and oak trees for this name, as well as the pioneer woman outlaw badass image from Annie Oakley. Spelling-wise though, it does look slightly awkward to me written down on paper.

I knew a woman who named their little girl Oakley, I have always liked the name and think it's such a great overlooked name, and I would love to meet more Oakley's.

Zelliew Says:


You could only use it as a middle name unless you wanted to be reminded of Annie Oakley forever
