What do you think of the name [name]Riley[/name]?

Which gender do you prefer it on? (I like it either way, although I’m leaning towards boy right now. This is a name that I think is truly unisex and works well for either gender.)

Any good middle name ideas? (Suggestions for either gender are welcome, although because [name]Riley[/name] is gender-ambiguous I think that a gender-specific middle name would work better. Also, my surname is two syllables and ends in -son.)

[name]Riley[/name]'s all boy to me. I think [name]Riley[/name] Poole (form National [name]Treasure[/name]) first and foremost. (yes, it’s a character name, he’s really [name]Justin[/name] Bartha)
So it still skews masculine for me. I cna’t in good concience endorse [name]Riley[/name] for a girl, I think it’s ugly on one.

[name]Riley[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Edward[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]James[/name] (I know one of these)
[name]Riley[/name] [name]George[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Stephen[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Ethan[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Frederick[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Christopher[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Marcus[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Peter[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]John[/name]
[name]Riley[/name] [name]Aidan[/name]

So I thin [name]Riley[/name] on a boy would go with just about anything a bit more solid than [name]Brayden[/name]. :slight_smile:

[name]Lola[/name], I like quite a few of the combos you suggested (my top pick from those would be [name]Riley[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]; [name]Riley[/name] [name]Charles[/name] is another one I came up with on my own). Thanks for your ideas!

All of my students with the name [name]Riley[/name] are girls. I have never met a boy [name]Riley[/name].

I have met one boy [name]Riley[/name] and two girl Rileys.

I like [name]Riley[/name] best for a boy but of course the first mn I thought of was [name]Riley[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]. For a boy how about [name]Riley[/name] [name]Josiah[/name], [name]Riley[/name] [name]Lucas[/name], [name]Riley[/name] [name]Christian[/name], [name]Riley[/name] [name]Owen[/name] or [name]Riley[/name] [name]Phillip[/name]. I really like [name]Riley[/name] [name]Charles[/name] and [name]Riley[/name] [name]Michael[/name].
