  1. I love my little man he is everything I imagined plus more

  2. My husband I both have names that start with R, so we decided to keep the trend going with our baby.
    We also didn’t know the gender and liked the idea of choosing names that could go either way (like ours).
    Through some name searching, we found Rhys and saw that it meant “enthusiastic and passionate”. With all the kicking I’d been feeling, that seemed like a good fit!

  3. Saw the name on a tv show. Loved the meaning which is enthusiasm which means God in you. Like the original spelling for a boy Rhys.

  4. My mom was born in Wales and Rhys is a Welsh name. He also has his great grandfathers middle name which is Ellis.
