I chose "boy" because it sounds more masculine than feminine to me, but I agree with the previous poster about it being a common name for dogs. There is a dog in my neighborhood named Riley. I wouldn't use it for a child for that reason.
I think of it as a dogs name Too bad because it is so dang cute!!
I would say now days it is more a girl name but when i was growing up it was more a boy name!

We are happily ADOPTING our rainbow baby.
Read my story here it is part of a campaign I was asked to Join...
I didn't vote, because I think it's equally boy and girl. *I* would say it sounds more like a boy's name, but here in Kansas it's being used for girls all the time. In my birthing class, all 6 of us were having girls and 2 of them were going to be Riley's. Then, when my daughter was about a month old, a mom in the Children's Place started talking to me. Her 8 month old's name was Briley.
I think it's kind of like Cameron. Real popular with both genders.
As far as it being used for dogs, I haven't known any dog Riley's. And, I wouldn't not use a name because it's used for animals. People use ALL names for their animals. There are dogs named Isabella. I have a friend with a cat named Isabelle. It didn't stop me from using that name for my daughter. And Max is currently one of the most popular names for dogs, but I still like it as a nn for this coming baby if it's a boy.
I adore this name for a boy, and if it was strictly a boys name, I would definitely consider using it... but since its so unisex, I cant bring myself too. Besides, most Riley/Rylee's around here are girls anyway, including my friend's daughter (Rylee).
I think it fits w/ either... but I just like it better on a boy.
