Ashley - what a lovely name! Reminds me of a sweet little child swinging from the trees in the meadows of central England. Although the name could be for a bloke or lady - who could forget Ashley from Gone with the Wind! Of course, in my books, Ashley Olsen, twin sister of Mary-Kate Olsen, ranks higher in importance with their contribution to the world of entertainment. (Ashley Judd move out of the way!)

If it’s a surname, it refers to the name of an Old English place, or it could mean ash clearing. The meaning could be ‘lives in the ash tree grove’. It’s a combination of Old English words 'æsc' (ash) and 'lah' (meadow)

Did you know there are six letters in your name with two vowels and two consonants? The six letters total to 25 and hence on a numerological basis your number is seven. This means you have a good mind and you are good at seeking the truth. You’re a good teacher!  On the negative side, you’re a bit of a loner and like to work alone. You dream of being the leader and the one in charge.
Many towns are named Ashley (especially in USA and UK). Have you ever lived in a town called Ashley? It would be quite cool, I think.

It can also be spelled differently - such as Ashlie, Ashlee, Ashleigh, Ashliegh or Ashlaie. It’s a pretty name and a popular one. So you could say if your name is Ashley - you’re pretty popular.

A caring person who loves her friends and who cares about other. Who tends to fall in love easily but can be mean if you hurt them. Can be a mean person if you hurt them but a very sweet person in general

In the American continent it is more famous as a female name. In the south of America the name is still more popular is used for males.

The name originated from a myth, according to this myth a beautiful young female was abducted by an ogre and imprisoned in an ash tree, however over the many years the tree took the form of the same beautiful women, since her name was long forgotten she was only remembered as Ashley. It is said that the fabled treed is located in the town of Devonshire in the United Kingdom.

The name Ashley means as its name implies "of the ash tree". The name also has an English legend associated to it. It tells of an ogre and how his lust made him kidnap a fair maiden. He traps her in an ash tree and there she remains. Her name forgotten she is known hence as Ashley. The tree it is rumored, takes her form.

Though Ashley is a Unisex name it is now mostly given to girls. Boys with the name Ashley are not uncommon. In the United States, the novel and film "Gone with the Wind" which had its male lead named Ashley Wilkes, popularised the use of the name Ashley for boys.
