We found out the gender of baby number 3 yesterday. We had planned on having a surprise, but because of complications, decided to find out.

So, now that I know that there is a healthy baby boy inside me, we've  tentatively started thinking of names.

He will be our third boy, we have a Mitchell and a Lincoln so far.

We both really like Rhys/Reece, and have pretty much made our minds up, but what spelling should we go with do you think?

I love this name, I like it spelled as Rhys.  We were going to use this name if we had another boy. original.gif

biggrin.gif That's what puts DH off that spelling. At least there is no advertising song that they use, to put me right off. I really like Harvey, but always think 'Go Harvey, Go!'

I think Harvey is perfect with your boys names!!!!

But to answer your Q, Rhys.

I prefer the Welsh spelling - Rhys and agree that "Reece"sounds like a toilet. rolleyes.gif

Definitely Rhys.

I tend to think of Reece as feminine now thanks to Ms Witherspoon (even though she is Reese.)

Rhys without question.  
Also, I know you're not asking for opinions on the name, but I just want to add that I really like it and think it works wonderfully with your other children's names.

Rhys

Reece makes me think it was spelled this way to make it easier for people who can't spell!

Rhys by a country mile. Short and sweet. I agree with that Reece seems more feminine to me too.

I've always thought of Rhys as being boys spelling and Reece as being for girls.

As many have said, Reece seems like the feminine version and I also envisage plumbing supplies  tongue.gif
