I much prefer the Welsh Rhys to the American Reece. I think if you’re in the US people might think you’re spelling it in a unique way but here in the UK I’d be far more suprised to not see it spelt as Rhys. 

I think it’s a lovely name, but I’m biased towards Welsh names in general.

Just putting it out there that Reese Witherspoon spells her name with an S, not a C. 

Personally I prefer Reese over Rhys or even Reece. I do like the name a lot though, for a boy or a girl. But your opinion is what matters most, OP!

Personally I would go with Reese if you like the name, because never in a million years would I have guessed that Rhys is pronounced as Reese. (In my head I pronounced it Rye.. like the S was silent?? don’t ask…)

Stephefanie:  good point about the RW spelling with an s. Now I’m thinking of those american chocolates with the peanut butter inside!

I like unisex names, mainly cos I am one (and so is DH!).

Reese and Rhys are on my list. Reese for a girl, and Rhys for a boy.

I had an old boss whose was a terrible human being, and whose last name was Rhys, so I have an adverse reaction to that name. :/

If not for the old boss, I probably would like it though. I like both spellings.

I LOVE Reece or Reese. To be honest when I first read your thread I was reading Rhys as “Ryes”. Maybe I have just never seen that spelling before (and I work in a middle school). I love the uniqueness of it, maybe he will have to do some explaining to people but who cares, spell it however you love! 🙂

I love Rhys. It was on my list of boy names, but DH didn’t like it. 

Another good name would be Rhett.

I love Rhett! It’s on my list. Also Rhys is a great name! I’m from the US and I’ve seen the name before and some explaining would be worth it if someone doesn’t “get it”.
