What do you think? And yes, before you ask, it was inspired by 'My So-Called Life' (early 90s teen series).

i like it.

Hmm, not to my tastes. And only because you're asking ;) - because it has a whiff of the trailer park to my ears. Jim-Bob and Ellie-Sue, type thing.

Love it.....also loved my so called life and get quite bolshy with Jared Leto fanciers who haven't heard of show and think they can 'have' him blush

mathanxiety Thu 02-Jun-11 02:42:29

Yes, trailerish to my ear too. Also sounds like Rayon.

I think it's horrendous, sorry.

I know someone called - and I have no idea how it is spelled - Raymar. I think it must be Welsh as she is.

I don't like it at all, sorry.

I like Ray. I like Anne.

I also like orange juice.
And I like corn flakes.

Sometimes things don't go well when you mix them together though me... I tried it.

Not nice at all

hannahsaunt Thu 02-Jun-11 14:11:47

Oh no - definitely not. Ds2 has a Rayanne in his class (child is a boy - I'm assuming it's a boys name. no?). No one knows how to pronounce it (he goes for rye-anne so to speak); I thought ds2 meant Ryan for a long time.

valiumbandwitch Thu 02-Jun-11 14:13:59

Is that where is comes from? My Mum's friend's gd is called this and my mum's friend was just baffled and devastated!!

valiumbandwitch Thu 02-Jun-11 14:15:49

The Welsh thing makes me think....

The correct welsh pronounciation of Reaghan might be Ray ann. ??? I only say this because I know sometimes Megan is spelt Meaghan but I had read that that was stupid because it would be May-An

muminthemiddle Thu 02-Jun-11 14:28:02

No. Sounds like a girls whose parents are called Ray and Anne.

MeantToStopAtTwo Thu 02-Jun-11 21:34:12

Thanks I really appreciate your views. I've only ever heard of one person who has used it (other than in 'My So-Called Life' of course) and they lived in the mid-west, very possibly on a trailer park.

So I guess dislike of it is fairly widespread and it should be ruled out.

EricNorthmansMistress Thu 02-Jun-11 22:46:43

No. I also loved MSCL and that is no reason to call your DD Rayanne. It sounds trashy American I'm afraid.

QueeferSutherland Thu 02-Jun-11 23:56:07

Upon reading the thread title, I did think "trailer park" tbh. Sorry.

Or Rayburn.

My friend named her daughter Rayhan. Lovely. I think her Dad is Arabic.

MelinaM Sat 02-Jul-11 20:27:56

Ummm, no, absolutely not!

acsec Sat 02-Jul-11 20:33:37

I knew it was from My So-Called Life when I saw the title of the thread. She was my fave character (after Jordan Catalano obv). I quite like it, there won't be any other Rayannes in her class and I have never come across one in my classes or in the school smile

PippiLongBottom Sat 02-Jul-11 20:38:29

Awful. Sorry.

Nancy66 Sat 02-Jul-11 20:42:44

Horrible - sounds like something you'd hear in an Aussie soap
