SO, my friends had their baby and they named him Rylee Reece....

I've never seen Reece spelled this way before, and I like it for a boy, as opposed to Reese. Just wondering what you all thought of it or if you've seen it before!

I've seen the spelling Reece, only on girls though. I love the name for a girl or a boy. For girls I prefer the spellings Reese or Reece and for boys, I like Rhys or Reese.

I think Rhys looks feminine...

I've seen it spelled that way on girls. Rhys is new to me though! I couldn't figure out how to pronounce it at first, lol!!

I went to school with a boy named Reece!
I much prefer Reece spelled this way on a boy, rather than Reese!
Reese is more for a girl!

But my overall favorite is Rhys!

I was the same way. I had never seen Reese spelled Rhys until I joined this forum. I don't like Rhys at all. The spelling just makes it look awkward, like it should be pronounced Riss.

I'd seen it before, on a little boy. I'm not a fan of unisex at all, so Reese/Reece/Rhys is not my style.

I've seen Reece, but I dunno, it looks kind of misspelled with a c instead of a s. My favorite spelling of Rhys is this way. But Reese is okay. Rylee Reece is a handsome name though! ~Hayden

I like Rhys best as well. I love Reese for a girl, but it kind of bugs me... like I'm supposed to pronounce it like the candy cup. Ree-see

I feel the same way. I like the name better on a boy, period, but if it's on a girl, I much prefer it spelled Reese
