First there was the unisex Riley, an Irish surname that became a popular given name in the 1990s. Then the alternatives started rolling in, and one of them was Rylie—same sound, different spelling. It’s a cute name, and with its “y” and “ie” ending, it’s more suitable for girls than boys. Want even more choices from this Irish family? Try Ryleigh, Rylee or Rylee, all for girls.
