We don’t know why, but we were a little surprised to learn that Peyton is actually an English place name. Despite its slightly plain beginnings, it has a fiery, feisty sound that parents today are loving. It debuted on the female charts at number 583 in ’92, and followed on the male charts at number 234 in ’99. The name was virtually neck-and-neck between each gender until the last year, when it shot from 121 to 60 on the female charts. Though football superstar Peyton Manning helps the name keep its masculine ring, this one’s quickly leaning into ladies-only land.
