  • "I'm a girl Ainsley and I love my name. People almost always mispell and mispronounce it, but it's unique and always such a great conversation starter. People have asked me before : "Did your parents name you after a video game character?" "Is Ainsley a character from Shakespeare?" Funniest thing was when I went for a job interview and the boss exclaimed "Ains-what? Thats too hard for me to pronounce, can I call you Einstein instead?!"" Jun. 21, 2021: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Ainsley and I'm in my 50's. Until very recently I'd only met two other female Ainsleys in my life. It was mostly a boy's name when I was kid, and I know of many more male Ainsleys over a certain age than female ones. It gets mispronounced and misspelled a lot, but mostly people tell me how much they love it or of their niece/granddaughter who shares the name. I am very grateful for it and so happy that I wasn't given a more common name." Aug. 27, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "Our 10 year old daughter is named Ainsley. We changed her name a month or so before she was born. We had thought we would name her Annalise, until we were watching West Wing. The character Ainsley was mentioned, and my husband told me he thought that was the most beautiful name he had ever heard. He doesn't usually have such a strong reaction to names, so I thought we should change her name to Ainsley. She loves it, and it fits her personality. We used Corinne as her middle name." Jan. 4, 2016: Report as inappropriate
