Afton is an Irish name way back in my family, but an alternate spelling is Aftyn and I think it's more feminine. Don't choose just because one is popular or trendy. Choose which one you like best!

If I were to have another daughter her name will be Nora. I like Lucille and Lucy for short. :)

Would it just be Lucy or would that be short for Lucille? Either way it's cute :)

I like Lucy or Nora. Aftyn/Afton reminds me too much of Ashton.

I love Lucy and Nora. Misspelling it with a Y isn't going to make it feminine.

It's not a misspelling, it is a legitimate alternative spelling listed next to it

In Swedish, afton means afternoon, so there's no way I can like the name for my own preference since I speak Swedish. BUT, if it's an old family name I think you should go with it, but not the other spelling. Lucy and Nora are both nice names, but if you want something with meaning then do Afton. I did meet a girl recently with that name.

My family used the "Aftyn" spelling too, for the same reasons haha. Afton/Aftyn is the only one up there with any meaning but if we use the others we'll use a middle name with meaning :3 I wish I spoke Swedish!
