    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 I love the south and southern names, but is this one a little too outdated?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.

    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    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.
