    Riley- has it gone pink now? AUSSIES??

    Love this name, remembered how much I like it but realised in US it's turned pink.
    I am in Australia- where it's way more for boys and sometimes a girl- but will it slowly turn pink here too?

    All opinions needed- but especially Aussie berries.

    I really love it for a boy! I know plenty of boys with the name Riley. Most girls spell it Rylee or Ryleigh or some other trashy (excuse me) version like that. I think it's much better suited for a boy, honestly.

    I'm American, but to me Riley is all boy. I've yet to meet a Riley.

    That's a GREAT start. Not too pink after all?
    I have paired it in my mind with another favourite: Riley Cormac

    I'm Australian. I know several little boy Rileys and not one girl Riley. I would think Riley was weird on a girl. That said, Aussie parents do tend to follow US/UK naming trends pretty closely in general, so it's hard to say what the future might be like.
