  1. We were watching the West Wing during early pregnancy and really liked a character named Ainsley. I suggested it one day to my husband who also liked it. It’s a name that isn’t weird but no one knows a ton of Ainsley’s

  2. I really loved the first name Jade. My husband didn’t love Jade as a first name and suggested Ainsley. Our old daughter’s name is Audrey and I thought having two A names was cool. We decided on Ainsley for first name and middle name Jade. We call her AJ.

  3. We were looking for a name that began with “A” to maintain a family tradition. Ainsley has a similar origin (Celtic) and related meaning to my name.

  4. We chose the name Ainsley because I used to work at a preschool in college and I had a little girl in my class named Ainsley. She was such a tiny thing but so full of sass and I just loved her. I’ve always liked the name so when we found out we were having a girl I knew it was a top contender. I love that it’s not a name you hear too often and it sounds so classic. The one thing I’ve found is that despite how it’s spelled, we hear it mispronounced as “Ann-sley” pretty often. It was definitely a perfect fit for our sweet girl and she is just as sassy as I hoped she’d be when we picked it out.
