Gender: M Raylan's Popularity in 2014: #495

Raylan, one of an uncountable number of two syllable, surname-like boys' names end in n that are in style these days, is inspired by Raylan Givens, the cowboy hat-wearing U.S. Marshall created by writer Elmore Leonard and starring in the television series "Justified." The Ray part of the name is of course a traditional choice -- it's usually said to mean "wise" -- but the lan takes it out of Old School Raymond territory. Other variations include Raylen, Raylon, Rayden and so on. The name is also sometimes given to girls, but there are almost 15 boys named Raylan for every girl Raylan.
