I think you'd have a lot of misspelling due to Rylan Clark-Neal. And personally I prefer the Rylan spelling as it seems more natural to me. Nice name though.

Rex?

Actually how about Rudy/Rudi? Met a little boy with this name the other day - so cool.

Hi there!
I definitely prefer Rylan, I think its not over common but a great name for any age. Im all for names that children wont have to constantly spell our for people their whole lives.

Good luck and congratulations!!!

I prefer Rylan for the spelling too. I’ve always liked Rory. Also I think Richard is underused, it’s a good solid name although might not be modern enough.

Rory is a nice name, as is Rowan and Rudi. Rylan, however you spell it, is awful.

Rhylen is particularly bad.

Rylan is a better but still not great. What about Remy, Rome, Roman. All names I considered.

I actually quite like Rylan, it’s a bit different

How about Rupert? Rudy/Rudi? Rafferty? Remy?

Sorry RoMan and RoWan and Rohan are all just too similar. Roman is fastest rising boys name in top 100. I work with newborns in paediatrics and there’s been SO many Romans and Rowans this year it gets really confusing. I wasn’t at all suprised to hear that Roman is the fastest rising boys name. It’ll be top 20 in next year or so. Personally I’d avoid names that are in such a similar bracket as correcting people and people mishearing would grate on me

What's a modern name?
I like Reuben and Rory but I don't think they're modern.
