  • "Our youngest son's name is Layton. We wanted an uncommon name so from the website of names we choose that one. We were at the doctors office the other day and the nurse called Layton thinking it was our son's turn it happened to be an older male who had the same name. That is the only time we have ever heard of someone with the same name as him." Dec. 1, 2010: Report as inappropriate

Everyone loves it, all girls I meet think it's cute and guys think it's cool. I was thinking if I have a girl to name her Lacey so it could be Lacey and Layton :-) I highly recommend this name, everywhere I go people LOVE it!!! Connie" Dec. 30, 2006: Report as inappropriate
