I am wanting to name my girl Sutton but to make my husband happy iv agreed to use his first name Ryan. So our girls name will be Ryan Sutton but she will go by Sutton. Not really wanting to change the spelling of Ryan but i think it might need so girlie touch I'm a big fan of boys names on girls but i dont want it to be to over the top boy. Any thoughs im not wanting to ditch Sutton but im open to ideas prefer a kinda boyish name ....

I definitely prefer Ryan on a boy... I think Sutton Ryan would be better, if you choose to keep both names.
Names similar to Ryan:
Rhian (A Welsh name meaning "maiden", so it's a legitimate name, not just a misspelling of Ryan)
Names similar to Sutton:
Saffron (love this one for you!)
Names with a similar feel to Sutton:
Some combo ideas:
Sunniva Ryan (this is my personal favorite)
Good luck!| Arabella Monet | Henrietta Plum | Isolde Noor | Agatha Ruby | Marian Primrose |
| Emma Berlin | Cressida Lilac | Jessamine Lark | Vivienne Snow | Ireland Eve |

Ryan, maybe convince him that she could have a similar name to Ryan, so that she has her own unique spin to the name? I like Rhiannon and Rhian from the suggestions above. You could also spell it Rian, Riann, Rianne, or Rienna. Hell you could even do Rain. I've never been a fan of men giving their names to sons or daughters; I mean chances are they're already getting his last name.
Sutton as a middle name is fine. I don't know how wearable it is for a girl as a first name, since it really has no nickname and its personality is pretty obscure. I like Sunniva, Sonnet, and Saffron from the above suggestions.
Overall I say that if you're going with Ryan as a first, you should maybe do a more feminine name as the middle. If you pick a spin off of Ryan as the first, Sutton would be just fine as a middle.

Ryan Sutton sounds all boy to me. I would be surprised to find out that she was a girl.
Though Sutton is becoming a little more popular with girls, it has male origins. And Ryan is undoubtedly boy. If using a unisex or opposite gender first name, I usually like to pair it with a gender-fitting middle name...if that makes sense.
For example, Cameron Michael and or my friend's name Ryan Elizabeth.
With that said, I'm a big advocate of using names that you love. But be prepared for the consequences. She will forever be called/get mail that says, "Mr. Ryan Sutton ______" and will more likely than not be assumed to be a boy.
