What do you think of the name...

Rhain for a boy? I think it's pronounced Rhine but I'd pronounce it like rain. My husband will probably shoot it down but I was thinking of baby names all night and woke up to the word rain in my head, I always thought it was a girls name but Rhain is a welsh boys name.

Re: What do you think of the name...

I wouldn't care, my name is ALWAYS pronounced wrong so that doesn't bother me. My name is Alisa, pronounced how it's spelt - A lee sa, but everyone always says alisha or alyssa. or even alisia. rhine sounds pretty similar so not a big deal.

I like it. But I'd spell it the way it sounds. Rain. Or rainn.

Re: What do you think of the name...

My husband didn't shoot it down. He actually said maybe because it's the name of a lead singer of some band Well, it's one to keep in mind.

It is different but not too bad. Though I agree with the other ladies with spelling it how it sounds. It would probably make things easier on the little guy.
