"Named Ryne, to this day still go by Ryno. I turn 21 in June. Love the uniqueness of my name" Apr. 6, 2014:
"I could'nt imagine having any other name. I love my name! The majority of people can't or won't say it correctly, but I still love my name. Famous Rynes include the Rhine River, Ryne Sandberg, and Ryne Duren, a HOF pitcher for the Yankees." Dec. 9, 2012:
"My son's middle name(s) is John Ryne. I'm a Cub fan and he was born in 1986. John is my middle name, a family name, but I had to sneak in a nod to my favorite team." May. 31, 2010:
"I know a Ryne and he is soooo hot and i think the name Ryne mkes him hotter too" Mar. 31, 2010:
"We just had our fourth child today, 3rd son. I love baseball and Ryne Sandberg has always been my favorite player whichi s why I ended up on this site. I want to name my son after him but was never really sure which way he pronounced his name. When people say the name it is hard to tell the difference between Rye-n or Ryan. Anyway, I am going to call him like it sounds, Ryne and I know it will be misprenounced. No big deal. I will more than likely call him Ryno or Cubby anyway." Mar. 5, 2010:
"My grandson was just born and names Ryne...pronouncing it Rye-n. It has already caused confusion due to spelling and then pronunciation.....I predict this is going to be an issue all his life. However, I love the name. He will just have to be patient with people who guess the pronunication or spelling incorrectly." Feb. 16, 2010:
"When I was pregnant with my first child I decided I loved the name Ryne. Yes, Ryne Sandburg was my favorite baseball player. When my daughter was born, I still used the name Ryne and it fits her perfectly. A beautiful and unique name for a beautiful and unique young woman now age 19." Jan. 22, 2010:
"My son is 3-months old. We couldn't decide on the name Rylan or Ryne. We wanted an uncommon name. We knew we wanted an "R" name, so he would have the initals "RR". We decided we loved the name Ryne. It is such a strong name, and it fits him perfectly. My husband is the one who thought of Ryne (I am sure he thought of it because of Ryne Sanberg). It is a great name." Jun. 11, 2009:
"Yeah im 19 and my name is Ryne. I have to spell my name out for EVERYONE! I dont understand how people look at my name and still say ryan. Its unbelievable. The only type of people that pronounce my name right are sure enough Cubs Fans. GO CUBBIES!!! World Series bound this year!" May. 14, 2009:
"My name's Ryne! I LOOVEEEEE IT SOOO MUCH!! I'm named after Ryne Sanberg also! I hate how everyone alls me 'Ryan' though. and spell check always says i spell my name wrong! ohh well. =)" Mar. 28, 2009:
"My 16-yr-old son's name is Ryne. When I was about 7 months pregnant, we were still undecided. We liked Ryan, but could tell is was becoming very trendy. My husband was gone for a couple of weeks to Germany with the Army. We had started looking at cities, street names, rivers, etc. by then. When he crossed over the Rhine River, he thought of Ryne Sanberg--my husband was a 2nd baseman as a kid! So we named him Ryne, but pronounce it Ryan." Oct. 5, 2008:
"We gave our son the middle name Ryne. Yes, after Ryne Sandberg. We just didn't want him to have to correct everyone all the time when they called him Ryan so we made it his middle name. LOVE IT!" Oct. 1, 2008:
"Our sons name is Ryne. It is also because of Ryne Sanberg. That is so funny to me. I thought he was the only one with that name!" Jun. 17, 2008:
"My brother's name is Ryne. My parents named him after the Chicago Cubs baseball player Ryne Sanberg. It's pronounced Rye-n or like the Rhine River or rhino. People mispronounce his name as Ryan all the time. There is at least one other boy that has brother's name (first and last in the same small town!). He was also named after Ryne Sanberg. The popularity of the name in the late 1980's through the early 1990's most likely coincides with Ryne Sanberg's baseball career. He is now retired." Mar. 7, 2008:

"We named my son Ryne 16 years ago. We pronoune it Ryan even though he is named after Ryne Sandberg." Jan. 5, 2013:
"My son's name is Ryne. Most people mispronounce it and call him Ryan but all of his friends call him Ryno." Jul. 14, 2010:
"My son is 10 months old and we named him Ryne after Ryne Sandberg. My husband LOVES the Cubs. When people ask what his name is and we tell them Ryne (pronounced Rye-n), they just assume it is Ryan. We usually clarify the spelling/pronunciation with them if it's someone we will see again. I love his name because I only know of two others who have the same name. My husband and I are also teachers so we really like that we haven't had any students with that name yet. :) I think the name really suits him. I guess people might just feel more comfortable making it a two syllable name?" Apr. 29, 2009:
"I am 14 and my name is Ryne(also named from Ryne Sandberg) and it gets really annoying because people always call me Ryan. Sometimes i just dont even correct them cuz ive become so used to it. I guess its a different name that not many people have but idk if it woulda just been easier naming me ryan or pronouncing it like Ryan but still haveing it spelled Ryne." Apr. 25, 2009:
