Comments for RYLAN:

This is a great name! We named our son Rylan in 1995 when it was very uncommon. It is unique without being "strange".

Rylan is a nice name and on the rise in popularity right now.

Rylan is a great strong name for a boy. I have seen it used for girls but myself feel it is too masculine for a girl.

I like Rylan a lot, gives a better twist to Ryan.

I have also seen this name spelled with a "d."

I think it would be great for a girl or a boy.

This name sounds much, much more mature and sophisticated than Riley, even though I do think Riley is a pretty nice name, as long as it's used on guys, not girls. This name is less likely to make me think of Bill O'Reilly as well, so I'd say this name is way better. But well, I think this name is guaranteed to become overused and shortened to the even more overused Riley.

I had a crush on a guy named Rylan for the longest time! But once I realized he was a friend, I thought to myself "I probably only liked him because of his name. It's an awsome name!" It is VERY masculine. I hope it does not become popular because I like it unique. I hope to name my little boy (if I have one) Rylan.

The Rylan Star League was an organisation in the 1984 science fiction adventure film "The Last Starfighter". The Rylans are the good guys of the film.

I can't help but feel that this was a significant factor in use of the name.

The hero of the film Alex Rogan lives in a trailer park; I don't know whether this is significant or not.

I think it's a pretty good name, I just wanted to say I used to know a little boy who's name was spelt RyLan, it made me like the name even more.

I feel like this could be a boy name (variant of Ryan) or a girl name (reminds me of Rylee). It sounds nice for either, and I normally dislike names that are suitable for both genders. Although honestly I have never met anyone named Rylan.
