Thank you so much for all the input!!! After reading the comments, I think that if this was the name we decided to go with, I’d probably be okay going with Rhys as it is the traditional spelling. We never wanted to do “different” spelling of a traditional name, but this really isn’t, it’s just spelling I hadn’t seen before.

misswaiting: I’ve never seen or heard of the name and I read it as “Reese”.

“Reese” I love this name! It’s on my top-3 boy name list. 🙂

Ris/Rice is how my brain immediately interprets it. I know it’s “supposed” to be “Reese” but my brain does not read that immediately.

My immediate reaction was “Reese” because I knew I was looking for a name and that’s a name I’ve heard before. But if I hadn’t ever heard the name Reese before I would have assumed it was pronounced “Rice”

Rise or rice. I would never have guessed a long e sound. Best of luck for that child.

misswaiting: I know it’s Reese, but I always pronounce it Reez in my head. I don’t know why. I feel like it should end with a z sound spelt like that.

“Reese”… I really like it! It’s a very traditional name, but there are modern celebrities with it too! (Like the uber-hot Jonathan Rhys Meyers)

I had a friend from Austraia who had the same name spelled that way and when we first started talking I thought it was “rice” but figured out the correct way later on so now I know it’s “reese” but I can see how it will confuse others.
