The name Ashley and what it really means

we often get asked where we got the name “Ashley” from for our second born son- it’s easy, we absolutely love the name!! 

Many people think it’s a ‘female only’ name ( no one tends to think outside the box) in actual fact, the name Ashley spelt – Ash(ley) is the male spelling, and female spelling is Ash(Leigh) so basically yes it is a Unisex name but spelling makes it different. We also chose the name Ashley Ryan butcher as my husband was convinced the name sounds like ( a pro surfer) Or a (super athlete) ha ha ha yeah that’s my hubby!! Anyway so that’s how we decided on Ashley.
