anonbee2009:   I love Rhys!!  It seems more masculine than Reece, perhaps because we have a female Reese in the family.

anonbee2009:  I think people who have heard of Johnathan Rhys Meyers will get it. It’s a good name, but some people may think you are using a “yooneek” spelling just to be different. Either way, Reese/Rhys is a good name. I think Reece with a C seems feminine.

I prefer Reese. But that doesn’t make Rhys wrong or anything. It’s a legit way to spell it. I just tend to read it as “rice”. I agree that using a C seems feminine, but that’s only because of Reece Witherspoon.

Rhys is on my top 3 list of boy names. Darling Husband doesn’t like it, but I’m hoping he’ll come around. 

I’m not a fan of Reece/Reese.

Someone I know has a kid named Rhys… I always pronounce it as ‘Ryes’ in my head. Not a fan when people mess with common spellings. Stick to Reese/Reece.

Are you guys saying “Rhys” is pronounced “Reece”? It’s not “Rice”? Because I always thought it was pronounced rice. Even that actor — it’s not rice?

I love the name Rhys! As someone who grew up with a somewhat hard to pronounce name, i don’t mind explaining it since I love how unique it is 🙂

I may be in the minority, but I love this name and actually prefer it to the Reese/Reece spelling–I think it’s unique and elegant. There’s a famous (female) mystery author named Rhys Bowen. I’ve since really warmed to Rhys as either a boy’s or girl’s name.

It’s a Welsh name and one of my favourites.  Most people pronounce it the same as Reece, which does irritate me a bit.  The correct pronunciation is difficult to explain in writing, but it involved rolling your Rs

littlew14:  exactly! 

And from a wales living bee I can say it’s a fairly popular name here. Reece to me makes me think of reece Witherspoon so think it’s a girls name.

anonbee2009:  I don’t know if any of you read the Laurell K. Hamilton books but the only thing that I think of when I see the name spelled that way is Rhys from the book. And it’s certainly not a name I would name my children just because the books are so graphic and dark. And maybe it’s because in my head it sounded different but I always pronouce that spelling ‘Rye-ass’ which I think sounds way cooler lol
