I think it’s interesting… but not, honestly, something I would name my own child.

Not a big fan. But, like the old saying goes, it’s your child! The only thing that matters is that you like it!

You could always call him by a shortened nickname (Ray) and most people wouldn’t bat an eye!  I think it’s cool that the name has personal signifigance to you.

Everyone would probably call him “Ray”. I think it’s an older sounding name, but not too bad?

One of our Detroit Tigers is Ryan Raburn (pronounced Rayburn) so that’s what I immediately thought of.

and Gene Rayburn from Match Game. .

Rayburn is a Scottish surname. I think it’s kinda cool, personally.  🙂

i like it! especally since he can be called a more traditional sounding name, ray, if he chooses! i am not a staunch traditionalist, but it’s always nice to give the kid an exit strategy!

FWIW my bff’s little brother (now 22) was named ray so i dont think of it as an old name at all!

Sorry – not really a fan.

If that flows well with your last name though, what about something similar like Raymond?  Has a similar feel without sounding made-up.

Kinda reminds me of Rayban, or Sunburn. It’s unique, and I’m sure if I knew someone named that, I’d like it better, but I’m not a fan.
