I recently have fallen in love with this name for either gender. What's your opinion on the name? What middle names would you put with them?

I think it is ok, but it sounds like a southerner saying "dating" and that's a little wierd. Lol. For Dayton, I'd say boy completely. I can't picture it on a girl.

 

I do like the name Daytona (prn day-toe-nah) for either gender, it reminds me of Dakota which I like a lot. :)

I don't neccesarily like it for either gender, but I see it on a boy, not a girl.

I'd say a boy but I live an hour south of a city named Dayton so that's all I can think of.

My American friend's brother has a son named Dayton, brother to Lennon. For me its ok, sounds like a surname. Not sure in Australia it would be a name used, and i think it's definitely more of a male name.

I'd think you had a son if you told me your child was named Dayton. It's not my favourite, but it's alright.

I agree on it being masculine, and I also agree it sounds like "dating". Dayton Michael, Dayton George, Dayton Bennett, Dayton Charles, Dayton Isaac, Dayton Oliver, Dayton Max?

Urgh! NO! Think about these names and do they honestly suit a adult? Can you see a lawyer been named that? A doctor? A vet? etc

People said the same thing of Aiden/Cayden/Jaden/etc as well as all the Kayleighs and Brynlees. Some of these children will wind up as a lawyer or a doctor or a vet. The name itself has nothing to do with a child's potential unless it is something offensive/humiliating or otherwise detrimental to a child's well-being. It has to do with the child, the child's environment. Bhutterfli Reignbo is detrimental, not Dayton.
Is a child named Aiden, who's parents help him with homework, have him participate in sports and make sure he's growing up well really as bad off as the child named Luke who's parents leave him to his own devices or not give him the support he needs? The name has nothing to do with it.

I second this.
