    Rhys is the traditional way to spell it for a boy. When I see Rhys vs Reese, Rhys will always be ALL boy to me, whereas Reese could be either.

    I like Reese or Rhys. I love feminine names for girls, but also love many unisex ones, so the spellings Rhys or Reese are fine. The only Rhys spelling I don't like is Reece because it reminds me of peanut butter cups.

    Either as a first or middle I like it. It is short and cute. Not too common but familiar and seems "nickname proof."

    Rhys is definitely an all-boy spelling. I agree that it looks cool. However, due to most people having the association with Rhys being a male, it could lead to some unnecessary confusion.

    itskitty - Rhys isn't a less traditional spelling. As far as I know it is actually one of the more original forms of the name. The spelling just indicates that it's a male name as opposed to the feminine "Reese" variation. I think that most people have enough familiarity with the name to not pronounce it as Rice, but I guess it depends on where the person is from.

    Woah, I'm super confused now. I am only aware of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, not Reece's. Did you mix them up or are they different depending on the country you're from? 0.o

    I know a girl named Karissa, who goes by the nick name Rhys. She pronounces it "riss". I personally love the name Rhys so much on a boy, I would never use it for a girl. But I can see how it could swing pink. I think as a middle name it would work just fine. Penelope Rhys. Elizabeth Rhys. Works fine.
