Do you like the name Riley for a boy?

I really like it...what do you think? More of a girls name?

  • I knew plenty of boys named Riley, and that was like over 20 years ago. I think it's nice.

  • I personally think Riley is more of a girl's name. I know several girls named Riley but no boys. Sorry! Just my opinion.

  • My bfs daughter is named Riley... BUT I grew up with all boy Riley's, never knew a girl Riley until recently. I think Riley is cute for a boy still.
