"Better than Ashley, though it sounds the same. Very ordinary." Feb. 26, 2007:
"This is my name, and it ranks right up there with every other spelling of the base name, "Ashley". It's too popular. I love the spelling, but I hate that everyone else's name SOUNDS the same as mine. It makes me feel stereotyped and not at all unique. Also, it gets mispronounced a lot as "Aleigha" or "Ash-leg," and it can be hard to convince people that it's neither of those." Feb. 16, 2007:

Everyone around me pronounces it wrong. The call me AshLEY which irritates the hell out of me. My name is AshLEEEEEE (it's an accent thing - American's usually say my name correctly).
Other than that it is a cool name; and like someone else said it does make me feel special when I'm surrounded by "Ashley's"" Aug. 26, 2006:
