Wdyt? Boy or girl? Riley, Rylie, Ryleigh, Reilly or another spelling? Do you prefer another variation such as Rylin, Raylee or Raleigh?

I don't like Riley/Rylie for a boy anymore. To me it's all girl. I prefer the spelling Rylie best.

I used to love Riley for a boy. But I'd never use it because its so unisex. Now that I know a girl Rylee personally, I cant use it because it sounds feminine to me.. kwim?

I like it for boys a little more than I do for girls and I like the Riley spelling.

I do like Rylan as well.

I use to like Riley for a boy but not so much anymore. I like it for a girl.

To me its all boy and I absolutely love it. I know a little boy of 5 called Riley Thomas James and he is the most adorable, sweet and friendly little fella you could ever meet. I have also known a couple of girls with this name but it just didn't suit them. And I only like to see it spelt Riley.

It's def al boy to me. Also like Rylan

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my fab siggy x

I know a little girl named Raleigh, but they pronounce it rah-lee, like Sir Walter or North Carolina.

I also have neighbors with a poodle named Riley. A male poodle, so it's probably not Rylie.

I had a dog named Riley once, a male dog. Totally a boys name to me.

Formerly known as "mommynina"

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!
