Fiance seems to really love this name but I'm not so sure! smile

Love it so much! One of my favourite boy names ever.

I like the sound but not the look. I'm irish though so would use the gaelic Ruairi which I love.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 16-Nov-16 17:08:39

I like it.

SecretlyBroody Wed 16-Nov-16 17:09:13

I think the look of it is what's troubling me now you say it!

It's all hypothetical at the moment as we're still waiting till we are ready but the names conversation has come up!

Think I will probably go with Rory if the time comes or Amelia/Emelia for a girl!

Lovely name - it is top of of our hypothetical boy's name list.

I love Ruairí & Ruairidh as well.

I like it but would spell it Ruairi as I'm in Scotland. I find it quite difficult to say though. With certain accents it can be a tricky name!

Love it, and would have used it if I didn't have a problem with saying my 'r's! ' Warwee' isn't as nice!

Think I might tell him I've changed my mind on the name and that we can use that name if we end up with a boy!

.... might speed him up on when we decide to go for it if he knows they will have a name he loves grinhalo

I love it. Very cool!

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 16-Nov-16 20:09:34

Oh, I really love this name..❤️

Hassled Wed 16-Nov-16 20:10:22

Absolutely love it. And I've only ever met nice Rorys.

Sweets101 Wed 16-Nov-16 20:11:16

Love it

Its a great name. I like the Gaelic spelling and pronunciation better though - Ruaraidh sounds like Rooory.

Surf25 Wed 16-Nov-16 20:22:54

Love it. Dh not so much!! hmm

SecretlyBroody Wed 16-Nov-16 20:30:36

I'm Welsh and my fiance is English so I doubt we would get away with the garlic version - there wouldn't be enough connection there. Plus I wouldn't want the constant questions on how it's spelled/pronounced!

SecretlyBroody Wed 16-Nov-16 20:31:26

Or gaelic version either. Stupid autocorrect grin

Ihateithere Wed 16-Nov-16 20:34:20

Love it..my boy's called Rory 😀😀

DramaAlpaca Wed 16-Nov-16 20:35:53

Love it.

buttercup54321 Wed 16-Nov-16 20:46:51

Nice name

ThisisMrsNicolaHicklin Wed 16-Nov-16 20:48:48

My autocorrect had us speaking Garlic, too 😂

SorenaJ Wed 16-Nov-16 21:10:34

Rory is such a lovely name

maroda16 Wed 16-Nov-16 21:28:51

Awh I love it!! It's my little boy's name!!

overwhelmed34 Wed 16-Nov-16 21:31:42

Funny, before I opened the thread I assumed it was a girl's name...(as in Lorelai/Rory from Gilmore Girls) which I think is lovely. But fab as a boy's name too!

I'd be wary of using it in case DS had trouble pronouncing his "r"s.
