Personally I think Ashley or Ashlee spelling for boy & Ashleigh or Ashlie for girl. I do know its spelled Ashley/Ashlee for girls as well as boys.Its kinda like that who Leslie/Lesley thing,tho I don't remember which is for who in that case 

ETA: I noticed how I was rambling on in this post.forgive me,im tired.

I've seen Ashli on a girl and I'm sure it's been spelt Ashly somewhere before. I can't stand either of those, though - they look so incomplete.

We had a sighting of Aschliee. You can't get much worse than that unless you manage to throw in a Y and an -eigh somewhere.

I've seen it spelled several ways.

Ashelee, Ashleigh, Asheley, Ashlie, Ashlea, Ashlee, Ashelea, Ashley, Ashle, Ashli, Ashlae

They all suck in my book.

Let's see:
Ashley, Ashlee, Ashleigh, Ashlie, Ashli, Ashliegh, Ashlea, Ashly, etc.

I'm sure there are others, but those are the ones I've seen most often.

Leslie is the masculine and Lesley is the feminine version of my name.
