This is definitely a boy name. I can't imagine why everyone loves it for a girl, considering it sounds just like Ryan. Heck, even Ryan is better on a girl. Rylan just sounds to trendy and made-up.

Please dont. It's just too derivative of everything trendy and unorginal.

Idk if its just because I'm a guy named Rylan, but Rylan sounds more like a boy name. Maybe Ryla or Riley for a girl, but Rylan sounds too masculine.
