Call me crazy, but honestly, I think the name Rylie is better for a dog, not a person.

I am ashamed to say that this is my given name. It is absolutely hideous and it sounds ever so childish! Plus everywhere I go where people ask me my name, I have to spell it out for them EVERY SINGLE TIME! My parents thought they were being profoundly original but they weren't because I know at least 5 other Rylie's (but not all spelled the same). I wish my parents could have given me more of a elegant, beautiful, classy sounding name such as Madeline or Adrienne, but NO, they had to go with boring and ugly Rylie :( Also, I agree with the poster who said Rylie sounds like a dog's name, because it does. Please take my advice, expecting parents, and DON'T name your child this name! They will hate it their whole lives! Sincerely, A Rylie with experience.

Let me tell all you "Rylie" lovers something: it's been nearly 6 years since I made my last comment, and I still feel the same way about it. I don't care what you say, Rylie is a god awful name. Personally, if I came across another website with negative comments about my name, I would 100% agree with them. I don't want to someday be an elderly lady with such a childish name. I want something more dignified. I plan to legally change my name when I get the chance. But if you like it, that's your personal opinion, I guess...

I like Rylie. It's a more feminine spelling of Riley, which is more of a masculine spelling. Rylie is sweet and classy.

Oh dear god. I have to say, this is pretty bad. When Riley is spelled this way, it means nothing. It lacks history, class, and dignity. Riley is from a surname, and back when there was a separation between male names and female names, surnames were solely given to males as first names (with a few exceptions). Riley, when spelled correctly, is a nice name for a boy. On females, spelling it Rylie, Rylee, Ryli, or however way you think is the 'cutest' or 'most creative', is horrible. A perfect example of the nightmarish naming trends of the 2000's: surnames gone male names gone trendy female names, with all kinds of interesting spellings in a failed attempt to make a traditionally masculine name looks cute and girly. I hope the parents of these little Rylies regret what they've done when their kute lyttle pryncezz is a forty year old woman.

The name Rylie was given to 54 baby BOYS born in the US in 2012. That's just cruel if you ask me.

I love this way of spelling Rylie instead of Riley. It's much more feminine to me. I think it's pretty and classy.

Everyone who made a negative comment about the name Rylie should be ashamed. Granted, that is my 7yr old daughter's name, so of course I am biased, but only truly good people accept someone for who they are, not what they're named. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but keep in mind that this is one of the first sites I came across while researching the meaning of my daughter's name.

If any of you are parents of a young girl or not, let me give you a brief scenario. Imagine your young daughter is doing some research online to figure out the meaning of her name, then she runs across these comments? How would you feel if your own daughter read comments like this about their name?

Rylie is my given name. It sounds very childish and is very cliché. I hate it! Please, do your kids a solid and don't name them this! Not to mention, it's hard for people to spell!

I think this is an adorable spelling, but I wouldn't use Raleigh/Riley/Rylie. Makes me sad to see these comments of people hating their name!

Those who have negatively commented upon their own names should be ashamed (like one person had said earlier) Sure, people are going to spell Rylie wrong a lot, but other peoples' names are spelled wrong every day too! I know because Rylie is my given name. I'm not ashamed that it is, I never was, and never will be. You should take pride in your own name; not pity it. How would you feel to go onto a website like this and see people bringing hatred to your name? I think that this name is pretty and elegant. So be grateful that your parents gave you a nice name.

As someone with the name Rylie, I'm honestly hurt that it is so hated.

I've always thought 'Rylie' was a creative spelling, since I've met one 'Riley', who's a guy. The name itself is NOT childish, it's the people who are given that name who may cause the impression of immaturity. It is NOT a horrible name. On the contrary, it's quite likable to me.

All of you guys need to chill about hating on the Rylies out there, okay?! It is just a name, you don't need to get so triggered at this name! And for all of the younger readers I think this name is fun people! So don't let people get you down!
