Me & my husband are going to name our little girl Rylee the lee is his middle name so I think it fits & we cannot come up with a middle name that we agree on so any ideas would be appreciated.. thanks!

My 2nd son's name is Riley. We kept it as Riley. The problem with today's parents are that they want to be creative but not thinking that the child will be forever spelling out their name because of them. Riley, how it's spelled is PERFECT! Rylee, Rhiley, Ryleigh??? Come on people, are you trying to create another language here... Think of the child not your creativity. By the way Rylee, Rhiley and Ryleigh are quite sad ways of spelling the perfect name, Riley!

I think it's a really cute name, I don't know if I would use it. But it's not masculine or for a boy at all. I don't understand how anyone would name a boy this. But I like it spelled Rylie instead. :)

Riley is my favorite boy name of all time! Lol. I've always thought this name was beautiful. I hate it for a girl. I hear of all these girls named Riley and I just don't think it would fit for a girl.

I think for a boy the spelling fits most as Ryley.
But I love Ryliee Madison for a girl.

My oldest son is named Riley James. It's a simple middle name but it goes together nicely.
