"I'd ignore the previous comment! This is a great name for a boy. Its a traditional Welsh name, so very unusual outside of Wales and not a stupid new age name. The only problem you might have it with people not being able to spell it or mispronouncing it." Jun. 21, 2008:

"Pertaining to USA only as name seems more common in Wales etc. I think Reece is a fine name but Rhys is spelled in a way that seems like a pretentious trick. The child will likely be teased unless growing up in a coastal or urban area where anything goes. In rural America he will be called Rice bc thats How the name phonetically appears and he won?t sound too cool correcting people." Apr. 9, 2021:
"I know a guy named Rhys, he's a gimp though. Always talking like some dumb DBZ character called Android 16.
Therefor, Thumbs down! for the name Rhys. Don't name your kid Rhys unless you want him to be a stupid gimp.
