My daughter's name is Rio. People around here really love it. She loves it too. She likes being unique. She has told me numerous times how glad she is that I did not name her a normal name like Chelsea or Britney etc. My daughter is in her early twenties so she's not a little girl, so it's not like she doesn't understand that her name is different than other people. And to tell the truth, I don't think you could pay that kid to change her name. She loves it.
The name Rio was given to 103 boys born in the US in 2015.

Who would name their kid after the capital of a country with such a patriarchal, misogynistic culture?
I really like the name Rio for a girl. It sounds exotic and it does bring back memories of the song by Duran Duran. If you're Spanish, maybe you only view it as a boy's name. I'm not Spanish and don't think of River. Rio is a very popular name for girls in Japan, which translates to "Jasmine" in English. So, view it how you wish. I picture it as a beautiful girls name.
I find the name Rio pathetic and uninspiring. It sounds puny compared to the name Leo.
I seriously don't know what the heck I was thinking before because I REALLY ♥ the name Rio for a boy now! I adore both the names Leo and Rio equally. :D.
I am Brazilian, and even though I've enjoyed visiting Rio de Janeiro, I don't think I'd name my kid after it. It would look ridiculous. Besides, to a lot of people, "Rio" reminds them of Hollywood's weird image of Brazil - you know, soccer, favelas, and women wearing fruit hats.
I like this name for a boy. It would only look good on a Hispanic boy though. It's pretty cute and I can see a middle aged or elder man with it too:)
Love it. Only on a boy though.
A movie called Rio is coming out about parrots or some tropical birds trying to get to Rio de Janeiro. I'm not sure but I think the main character bird is named Rio too. So now I picture a blue parrot with the name Rio.

Quite pathetic and again, not a given name.
