What spelling?

DH and I are pretty set on the name Riley(<---most commonly used spelling I believe), however we're looking at different spelling options.  The "l-e-e" at the end makes it more feminine.  I've seen:

Rylee

Rilee

Ryelei

Ryleigh

Hmm.. anything else?

    The correct one: Riley

    If you are going to give your daughter a unsiex/boy name, do her a favor and spell it correctly. Own it. They don't look more feminine at all. The others are really really bad and look like you just can't spell. It is a child's name, not a game of Boggle.
    Yup... these two nailed it. Why do you want to torture your child with a spelling like any of those? Seriously, just use Riley!

    FWIW it's wary, not weary. Def stick around :)
  • I like Rylee and Ryleigh and of course the original spelling :) Rilee will be too easy to mispronounce, I can see people calling her "reel-E". Good luck!
