    Renaming Riley

    Years ago, I started writing a sci-fi novel and used the name Riley for the main character's grandfather and son. Neither Riley is in the book much - grandpa's mentioned a few times (but was a major influence on her) and the son is about a year old when the book ends, so not much in the way of character development. When I named these characters, Riley wasn't very popular and wasn't used for girls much. I still love the name, but want to change it - it just doesn't fit them now.

    I already changed another character's name due to the same issue and hers was difficult, but not nearly as hard as renaming the Rileys.

    Grandpa was a free-lance star freighter captain (aka a suspected smuggler) - a "tough old coot" whose family is the most important thing to him. The baby is a smarty-pants, independent and stubborn - kind of a "tough little coot." :lol:

    I want something mostly masculine, but could potentially be used for a girl. I would like to stay with an "R" name, but I'm not going to be too picky. And the more unusual, the better. Since I'm completely at a loss...any suggestions? Thank you!!

    As far as R names go that can be unisex, the only one coming to mind is Ryan. Or Rowen/Rowan.

    Other names: Preston, Ezra, Colby, Cooper, Douglas, Jake, Jamie, Mason, Shane, Van.
