Spelling of Peyton

Just a quick question.  We're having a girl in October and her name will be Peyton Olivia.  I've heard people say that the girl spelling is "Payton" but I'm not a big fan of that spelling.  Peyton can be used for a girl too, right?

Re: Spelling of Peyton

  • My oldest sons middle name is Peyton. I prefer it spelled this way for a boy or girl.

    And we had someone tell us just the opposite. Her son was named Payton and she told me I was spelling it wrong by using the "e".

  • Yes, and not a fan of 'Payton' at all.

    I like Peyton better OR I I have a friend who wanted to make it look more feminine and spelled it Paityn for her little girl which I LOVE but not everyone does! Just a suggestion! :)
  • I think Peyton looks better than Payton.

    We had a baby born at the hospital a while back and her name was Peightyn, yup another "unique" spelling. Now I think that is worst spelling I've seen.

  • Peyton for sure.  I know two girls names Peyton and they are both spelled this way.

    She wasn't asking opinions on the name, just the spelling. 

    I think you should use the "e" in the name.

  • Thanks ladies.  I figured it was fine to use the "e" but wanted more opinions.  I just prefer the way it looks!
  • My little sister's name is Peyton with an "e"...
