    Question Gender specific spelling of "Riley"?

    Is there a specific way to spell Riley for boys? Looks like we've settled on this for a middle name after John G. Riley, but when I look up this spelling on Namberry, it comes back pink. Is this just one of those now gender neutral names that are more popular with girls at the moment?

    Riley and Reilly are the most masculine looking to me, I think because of the surname factor.

    Riley is all masculine in my opinion, since it is also surname.

    Either Riley and Reilly for a boy. The Riley spelling is also used for girls as well. The other more cutesy spellings of Rylie, Rylee and Ryleigh are more common for girls.
    All the best,
