Help! What do you think of Rye?
My husband and I have the name Rye at the top of our list. (For a boy)
His name would be Rye Lee Peterson (Lee is a family middle name, so its a must) - I was thinking as a child we could call him Rye Lee and as he got older, he would have the option of staying with Rye Lee or going to Rye.
Is it too weird??

Rye makes me think of the grain, like being named corn or wheat. Next I think of whiskey...
I think Rye Lee would make anyone hearing it assume his name was Riley which would lead to a lot of spelling corrections.
If Lee is a family name a different first name or an extra middle name might lessen the 'Riley' confusion or Ryan is a very nice alternative which could still give the nn Rye.Thrilled to be mother to @gnes Ei1ish Madeline and Fe1icity Bridget Be@trice
If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.
