  • I've only ever met boys with the name Rylan.

    I think it's cute for a girl but in no way do I find it "girly".

  • If we have any more kids, if the baby is a boy, he'll be Rylan. You can also do Ryland which is more masculine in my opinion.

  • its one of those feminine boys names like dylan or cameron. i personally dislike the girly boy names but there are so many moms who give girly boy names to their sons. it would be a great name for a girl but really soft names make soft boys/men. give him a real boy/man name

  • "t would be a great name for a girl but really soft names make soft boys/men. give him a real boy/man name "

    LOL!! Are you kidding me??? A name does not depict how "manly" a little boy will grow up to be. It's how he's raised and his strength of character.
    One of the "manliest" guys I know is named "Devon". That's often used as a girls name.
    That is a ludicrous assumption.
