  • "My name is Ashley Elizabeth. I like my name! I was born in '94. I get called "Ashie" or "Ash" or "Ashes" by my friends and family. My name also has meaning. The night before I was born the neighbor's house caught on fire with flames shooting 10-12 feet up in the air. My Mom was so worried about the family that it sent her into labor 3 weeks early the next morning. On my 1st Birthday we had a party and the neighbors (whose house burnt) had a "rebuilding" party after their house was re-done after the fire. One of the people at the neighbor's party asked my name and when Mom said "Ashley" they asked if that had anything to do with the fire? Ashes/Ashley.

  • "To the person who said about mistaking "actually" for Ashley, you are so right! My name is Ashley and I constantly think people are saying my name. Ashley was the second most popular name when I was named it, so I grew up with two other Ashley's, and one was always in my class. Usually we knew when one of us were being addressed, so it didn't bother me. Not saying I'd rather be named Taylor or Morgan rather than Ashley, but it's an alright name."

  • "It's an alright name, I really like the name Ashley for a middle name! But for a first name it is way overused! Almost everybody knows atleast 2 or 3 Ashleys! I know 7 Ashleys, but I've probably met like 20 of them in my lifetime! But i absolutely hate when people spell Ashley like " Ashleigh", it's such an ugly way to spell it! But again the name is too overused!" Apr. 29, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Ashley while we lived in the mid-west. The only other Ashley was a young boy. I like the name and thought it would go as well for a girl. When we moved to the northwest to my dismay every other girl was named Ashley. It was too late to go back and change it. She hates it, I regret it being so popular. Could have at least spelled it Ashliegh. She changed it to Eadrashalee. We call her Ash, Ashley-Smash, Smashly-Ashley, Miss A, some of her friends call her MS or Midget Satan.... She is not blonde, rich, or spoiled but she thinks so." Apr. 26, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Ashley... I was born in '88, right around when the name Ashley was at its peak. Generally I like my name... I just really used to hate when I was in primary school and there were like three or four other Ashley's in the class. Sometimes we wouldn't know which one of us the teacher was referring to... I like the fact that my name is easy to pronounce. I also like the different renditions, such as: Ash, Ashes, Ashers, Ashey, Rashley (my dad's rendition, lol), or my mom's favorite Ash-A-Lee. And a way of spelling of my name other than the traditional way that I like is Ashlei (I had a friend who spelled her name that way)." Mar. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "When I first started public school, from kindergarden to the 2nd grade another girl in the same class as myself beared my name. Such as: "Ashley Green" and "Ashley Nguyen" even my best friend has an older sister named "Ashley". Also in the media, most Ashley characters found in movies and the like are rather poor in personality, usally rich, white and blonde. Whitch is a pity, since all the Ashley's I've ever met in reality have been asian, white or black ect. I myself am Biracial. I like to think that the meaning of my name means that life can grow after distruction has came and went. Ash is fertil, and grows big lush greenry; trees. And life is beautiful as they say."

Also i had at least two other ashley's in my classes in high school. Ashley is a very very popular name. I have always been known as Ashley K. I would've loved to have a unique name.

  • "I have a daughter named Ashley who loves her name. She has just turned 11 years old. I fell in love with this beautiful name when I was a little girl, long before it was popular as a girl's name. Anyone who's read my late cousin Margaret Mitchell's novel "Gone With the Wind" (or have seen the movie) are familiar with the character of Ashley Wilkes and remember that long ago this was a "boy's name." But I knew of one girl when I was growing up with this name and thought it would be beautiful for a girl. So many, many years later after getting married and having a little boy named Shane, I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl that was named "Ashley Nicole". I thought the name was wonderful all those years ago and still do." Feb. 25, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have grown to dislike this name. It is so common and I know of at least thirty other Ashley's. My name is Ashley, so it gets very, very annoying. I always had to use my initial so teachers could distinguish between me and the other Ashley's. Whenever I walked down the hallways of school, there was always a Ashley being called, and I always ignored it. My mother could of named be Rhea, a uncommon name compared to Ashley, but of course she had to pick the most common name during the 80's. I also hate how people stereotype this name! Not every Ashley is blonde and a cheerleader or stuck up! People, a recommendation. Wait at least another twenty years and probably named your kid Ashley!" Feb. 8, 2007: Report as inappropriate
