You seriously need to get a life. Ashley, Madison, and MacKenzie never were boys names and never will be. I don’t know where you got that crap from, no offense. Ashley has been used for about a thousand years now and probably means "fair lady" or "following the dream". Madison is a very old female name that means "she who has many sons". It also is a surname but that’s a totally different story. MacKenzie is a recently made up girls’ name, though techinically it means "love". As said before, the surname is a different story. DO YOUR RESEARCH!

Madison means son of maud or Matthew’s Son. MacKenzie means Son of Coinneach; son of the fair one. It is a traditional Scottish surname. Ashley means ash wood. All of the following have been used for males orignally. MacKenzie and Ashley are on my Guilty Pleasure list for boys.

I agree with the previous 2 posters. Ever seen/read/heard of Gone With the Wind? One of the main characters is Ashley Wilkes - a MALE character. Funny, Ashley is played by Leslie Howard. ANOTHER male name hijacked by parents for their girls. Joyce is another formerly (and still) male name that has gone to the girls.

I think you need to do some reseach...both of the comments above are 100% correct. All three were originally Male names and/or surnames. They are now usually used for females but can be either, aka unisex names. Seen or read Gone With the Wind? The main male role is named Ashley and that was written in the 1930’s. Sorry but you need to do your own research before telling others they are wrong.

Then whoever wrote Gone with the Wind stole Ashley from the girls to make it a boys name. You so have a point, whoever made this poll. These are girls names.

Go to Look up ashley it means ash wood and is unisex. It has always originally been a male name but i am not going to argue with you anymore. Whatever you want to think is fine but your giving out false information.

God, I’d scream if Madison really meant "she who has many sons". It’s so old-fashioned and even sexist. And I wonder how it got so popular if it meant THAT.

Ashley is unisex and means Ash wood
Mckenzie is unisex and means son of Coinneach (a scottish legend)/ Son of the fair one
Madison is unisex and means son of Maud
at least this is what I believe, as does everyone else in here. These names are unisex and shall remain unisex. So unless you are a female called Albert or a male called Sheila I think you should keep your opinions to yourself.
