Leighton is super-friendly with a personality so bubbly, he or she makes champagne seem flat. But this gender-neutral name also has an upper-crust sensibility and comes from a variation on the surname Layton. Though boys have a longer association with the name, it’s become a girl thing in the 21st century. Its most notable namesake is Leighton Meester, the actress who starred as the scheming Blair on 'Gossip Girl'.
