  • "We called our son Oakley, he was born in 2012 and I've never had any bad feedback about it. It really suits him as he's a boys boy and I think it's a boyish name. It's also really cool just like my boy and everyone loves it. We are from England and it can be a little annoying when people misheard and call him "Alfie"." Oct. 7, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter is called Oakley Grace, she's only 3 weeks old but no one had heard of the name and I liked that. I think it defo suits a girl more than a boy. I couldn't imagine an 18 year old lad being called Oakley..seems too girly." Jan. 11, 2017: Report as inappropriate

Everyone he meets tell me all the time, I just love his name and it suits him. No one has made fun of him, and the lil girls just adore him lol. I don't regret nameing our third son this at all!"

We fell in love with this name, and so have our friends. Our parents on the other hand, and the older people in our life have a different opinion. I'm sure they'll grow into it."

  • "My daughter is named Oakley. she was named after the homestead of my mothers family. Most people have never known anyone called Oakley so she gets some exclusity at the same time its easy to pronounce. Now that shes a teenager her name has maybe helped her stand out in the crowd a lttle more. We never thought about the sun glasses (thought the brand most likly a passing trend) when we named her, but sharing your name with a brand, means that you can always find something cool to wear with your name on it. Much better girls name than boys (too feminin) Oak?lee. I think she really likes her name." Oct. 28, 2013: Report as inappropriate
