"We named our newborn son Layton (born in March 2010). We love that it is unique but not too "out there." We've received many compliments on his name but are always asked how it is spelled since there are a number of variations (e.g. Lleyton, Leighton, Leyton...)" May. 24, 2010:
"We have a Layton. Saw it because I am a huge tennis fan. Went with the "a" rather than the "e", but like the "e", too! We love it." Jun. 13, 2009:

"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:

"We spell it Leyton (similar to pro tennis player Lleyton Hewitt)" Apr. 29, 2009:
"I named my son this after seeing it on MTV, I was having a hard time coming up with a boy name. I loved it and thought it was unique, but never heard it before. 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!!!
