Omg so I have that same name as well, Ryanne.
And I get this a lot when people meet me so they would either call me Ry-Anne or Re-Anne and
I’m like “It’s just Ryan” in that pronunciation which I like but when they say it wrong it kinda annoys me but I gotta live with it my whole life or it’s just simpler if people use my nickname which is Ry cause it’s a lot easier and you don’t have to hear your name being pronounced wrong.

As an English teacher, I can affirm that Ryanne - phonetically - should be pronounced "Rye-Ann" - however, with names, one gets to apply poetic license. We named our daughter Ryanne and pronounce it "Ryan." Reason? I was calling roll the first day of class in 1992 and mistakenly called a girl named Riann "Rya-ann" - she sweetly corrected, "It's "Ryan." She was such a great kid and I'd never heard a form of Ryan for a girl before, so I tucked it away in the "name vault" for future consideration. With a Scottish surname, we were looking for something similar in origin for a daughter and "Ryan" seemed to fit. We wanted to feminize the spelling, however, so she would not appear to be a boy when it appeared in print. Also, as a fan of Anne of Green Gables, I simply couldn't have "Anne" without the "e." Now at nearly age 20, she has met several other "Ryann/Ryan/Ryannes" of various spellings - in fact, one moved in right next door! And they have all loved their (somewhat) unique names. Yes, she sometimes was called "girl Ryan" to distinguish her from classmates, but it's no different than having Hannah B, Hannah D, Hannah M... ;)

Fun to read all the comments from other "Ryanne" aficionados. Not so fun to read the negative comments... which, seriously, why? Just don't use the name if you don't like it. No need to be so salty!

I mean, it's not THAT bad, and it's better than Ryan for a girl. If pronounced rye-ANN or ree-ANN, I think it sounds okay. Not great or amazingly pretty, but I find it more interesting than a lot of more boring names that are popular these days. Pronounced like Ryan it just sounds too masculine.

My name is Ryanne and I pronounce it Ry-ann and I love it! I love being unique. It does suck that I will never find my name on anything but I don't care as much as it being unique. I do get a lot of mispronunciation but I don't sweat it. My best friend actually calls me Ryan and I work at a job where I answer the phone and I get a lot of Diane and Reeann and Roxanne but it's cool with me! I'll be your Diane hahahahha.

My name is Ryanne and I think it is a very cute name. You might get called different names and people might spell/pronounce it wrong, but that doesn't matter. Some people might say Ryan and spell it that way. All you have to do is politely correct them and teach them how to pronounce it right.

My name is actually Ryanne, and no one ever likes that. They spell it wrong, think it's a stupid name, even sometimes make fun of me. I personally LOVE my name. I never have to worry about other girls having the same names as me, ans it's a pretty name. For the people who don't like it because it's a feminine version of Ryan, I DUN CARE WHAT U THINK.

Also, Ryanne means, "Little princess" or "little ruler" and is an Irish name.

Ryan is not a girls' name! Spelling it Ryanne doesn't make it any more feminine. Changing "an" at the end of a male name to "anne" doesn't always make it feminine. What's next, Dylanne or Brendanne?

I think Ryanne is a hideous name. I feel bad for girls who bear it.

Ryan is a great boy's name! But Ryanne, get real, that's just eww. Whoever came up with this has issues.

This is my middle name, but I spell it Ryann and pronounce it Ree-Ann. I think it's unusual but it gives a nice balance to my name because my first name is so popular. My parents didn't just randomly pick it, Ryan is my mother's maiden name.

I don't like lazily and unimaginatively derived names from male names, like Brianne, Deanne, and this hideous, harsh-sounding name.

My daughter's name is Ryanne. We've had a few mispronunciations of Rayanne and Ry-anne. She's only ever had 1 boy Ryan in any of her classes.

I actually like the original spelling (Ryan) because Ryanne looks like it's pronounced Rie-Ann.
jasmineenimsaj  2/6/2008
Wait, has this name been currently made up to sound more "feminine"? I don't know. I don't really like it, just because I'm used to the masculine Ryan more.

I would like this better if it was pronounced REE - ANNE.
SilentStrawberry  11/15/2007
I like the name Ryanna but for me it's too popular so when I heard this name I loved it because it's close to the name Ryanna but it's unique and uncommon also.

Umm what is so bad about the original spelling?

I think it's cute!

Connotation for the name Ryanne means "little ruler".

On the TV show "My So-Called Life" it was spelled Rayanne.

Although Ryan/Ryanne seems to be rising in popularity for girls, it is still one the most popular names for boys, and if you name your daughter this they will most likely share the name with several boys in their class.

I so disagree with you. Ryanne is totally a CUTE name. This version is much more feminine than Ryan! '"Ewwwwwwwww'". Right.
