Riley -- an upbeat, friendly Irish surname name -- is red hot for girls (though still going strong for boys). More than 7000 girls were named Riiley in 2016, enough to land it in the Top 25 for the first time. And that doesn't even begin to account for Rylee, Ryleigh, and other popular variations. Riley is one of the few contemporary androgynous names that did not lose its masculine power when it became popular for girls.
Newsperson Norah O'Donnell has a daughter named Riley Norah.
