Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Rylan

Rylan is a made-up name; a modern American invention with no real etymology or root meaning. Rylan was likely coined in reaction to the rising popularity of other “Ry-“ sounding masculine names: Ryan, Ryder, Riley and Ryker. This compulsion to invent new given names for babies is very distinctive to the United States compared with other English speaking nations (although folks in Canada and Australia often follow suit). Such names are appealing to non-traditional parents; and they are quite fashionable in some circles. Because of Rylan’s gender-neutral sound, it has also found success as a girl’s name in America.

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME RYLAN

Rylan hit the U.S. male naming charts in 1997. It gained a following fairly rapidly, jumping an average of 50 positions on the charts year-over-year for the past 10+ years. Just a couple years ago, in 2009, Rylan debuted on the female charts. Boys, you better watch out. American parents go ga-ga over these unisex names for their baby daughters and they have a tendency to hijack them in time. Rylan is a perfect candidate for such a coup – with the “lin” sounding suffix it’s almost more distinctly female (although it remains more popular for baby boys right now). Rylan actually achieved Top 100 status in terms of favorite boy names in the states of West Virginia, North and South Dakota.
