I adore the name Layne on a little girl <_< Aleighra is pretty too, but the spelling isn't really my style.

I like Rhys Declan. It has a nice flow.

I also like the names, but Aleighra looks a little off--does the name "Leigh" have special significance? I think the spelling Alira or Aleera is nicer.

I love Layne or Lainey on a little girl. Aleighra isn't my style.
I agree with the other ladies that the spelling is a little.. awkward.
Maybe it's just me... but Aleighra Layne is a bit of a tongue twister?

Rhys Declan is lovely! <_<
Loving the Irish-ness of it!

Aleighra, both the spelling and pronunciation, are a little off to me. I didn't know how to say it at first glance, and it doesn't flow off the tongue very naturally. Have you considered just using Aliya/Aleah/Alia (I like Alia best if you're going to use Layne) instead?

Also Declan Rhys is adorable--so very Irish, I love it, and the flow is great <_<

I like the pronunciation of Aleighra, but I agree that the spelling doesn't look right and I don't think I would have been able to pronounce it right without you saying how. That being said, I think Alira Layne looks a lot better. I absolutely love the middle name Layne or Laine for a girl though.

I also think that Rhys Declan is a very cute name, but agree with the previous poster that Declan Rhys has a better flow to it.

I'm going to agree and say that Aleighra Layne is a bit difficult to say. The Ls get me tongue tied. I think Aleighra and Layne on their own are nice but they just don't work well together. I also agree that they spelling of Aleighra is a bit confusing. Lyra is already a recognizable name, so what about Alyra?

I think Rhys Declan is a great name for a boy!
