  • "Solely a boys name where I am from and have seen it quite a bit. Many sports fans and see all ages from Little boys to grown men with the name. People would cringe to see it on a female and I am considering this name for my son I really love it. I think it's strong and ages well" May. 28, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "Love this name! Could only see it on a boy but nowadays parents want to give their little girls boy's names - not sure why - if they aren't super pretty it will be a rough road having such a boy name like this. It carries well and everyone will associate it's masculine form and meaning, sounding, and a form of Patrick, and with Peyton Manning and the other famous Peyton's who are all boys. It will stay a strong male name that will sound odd on anyone other than a male." May. 22, 2019: Report as inappropriate
