Personal experiences with the name Peyton

"My son's name is Peyton, after his great great grandfather. Couldn't love this name more, it fits him perfectly. He is all GIRL. One tough, sweet four-year-old, who loves his mommy. I think its quite a bummer for the boy babies who ended up with this GIRL name! "

"My best friend's name is Peyton. I think it suits him rather well. I play the tuba (a girl tuba yeet) and he does too. According to Google (I searched it), it says that the name Peyton means "fighting man" or "fighting man's estate (I don't get this meaning)." He is a kind, funny, tough, outgoing, talented person. I love him (you know what I mean) like it's the end of the world."

I named my son Peyton while watching Peyton Manning during his college time. I am French and for the life of me,until I announce my son name to my mother,i never thought of how they would pronounced it. Petons in French is the plural of Peter which mean let one go or farting or braking ...I laught for at least an hour at the hospital on the phone..I kept the name of course because I love it but it is a joy for my family in Franc to tease him with that.
