  • I like Adrian. If you want to put Ryan in it after your husband then that makes sense, but the child will probably have trouble throughout his life explaining the spelling.

    On the other hand, it would be neat to say "because of my Dad" ... so I might go for it :)

  • Can you just name him Ryan? I love the name Ryan. Adrian is nice too, but I like the traditional spelling.

  • Adrian is a very nice name....Adryan, not so much. It just looks awkward to me. What about Adrian Ryan?

  • Adrian is very nice but when you spell it Adryan i want to pronounce it Ad-ryan. I do like asmcbride suggestion of Adrian Ryan.

  • I like Adrian. My mom is Adrienne. Just be prepared to be constantly spelling his name. The name lends to misspellings in the first place. If you don't think you will mind…but it will be for the rest of his life. I have a name that always needs to be spelled and it gets old. And I inadvertently did it to my DD. She gets really annoyed sometimes.
