Your vs. Opinion of vs. Rhys

Hi everyone! We’re strongly considering using the name Rhys for our second son (first son is named Will). But I’m wondering what people think of when they hear the name? Can you give me some thoughts? Do you like it or hate it? Is it traditional, unique, strong, awkward, what? (I know this is specific but I want to make a good choice!) Thanks so much for your help!

Love it! And I think that spelling goes well with Will! Will and Rhys are both great names!

This is the first time I seen Rhys. I like unique but also wonder what it means and where it came from. I would assume it was short for something if I just heard it.

I could see kids making fun of it "no one can rise above rhys".... idk I work with kids and they say the strangest things...

I love it. I worry about using the spelling Rhys as a first name since no one can pronounce or spell it but either way, it’s awesome and why shouldn’t you educate a few people?

The name Rhys is traditional. Reese is also traditional but seemingly more on the modern side. Definitely not awkward. I think it’s a strong name.

Rhys isn’t pronounced RISE. It’s pronounced REESE and it’s Welsh.

LOL Yeah the spelling would be confusing and I would have said it as Rise also if I never heard it.

Spell it Reese

I like Rhys for a boy, but I would be concerned about teasing since many little girls are now being named Reese.

My son is named Rhys and it\’s a great name. It can be considered unisex since you can spell it Reese for a girl but so are so many other names! Logan, Avery, Eliot....all masculine names that are now being used for girls. Anyway Rhys is awesome!

When I see it, I think Rice . . . go with Reece.

when I first read the name I was not positive to how it was pronounced then when reading the comments I realized it was Reece which in my opinion would make life easier but not as unique so easy or unique?

My mum says that if she had a son she would have called him Rhys ... spelled that way too and I always loved the name.

Am I the only one who noticed that there are supposed to be 4294967291 comments acording to the poll page but I only see 10?

Rhys is nice too. I love it. Though I have never prn it Rise, I did used to say it r-iss. Like Kiss with an R instead of a K. I like it said Reese and Riss though. Riss I think is more unique.
