Wonderful, handsome, MASCULINE name. I can't fathom why anyone thinks this name is "cute" for their daughters. Peyton Manning is a well-known, MALE NFL Football player.

Personal experiences with the name Peyton: | Edit

My sons name is Peyton, after his great great grandfather. Couldnt love this name more, it fits him perfectly. He is all BOY. One tough, sweet four year old, who loves his mommy. I think its quite a bummer for the girl babies who ended up with this BOY name!
