I am seriously loving Wren as a girls name. Obviouly it means bird in Old English. this has meaning for us as Wrens have been sticking around at our house a lot lately.

DH is liking the spelloing Ryen though. But I can see everyone getting confused with Ryan.

Sibling boys are Ezra and Henry.

Also want to point out the link in all three names



EzRa
hEnRy


RyEn
wREn


All have R and E in them, both boys have Z in their names, Henry's is in his middle name Izak hence the Z in Zoe (but we are open to other 3 letter names with Z in them)

Wren is adorable.

Is Ryen supposed to be an alternative spelling of Wren? I can't see how they are remotely the same thing. Definitely looks like misspelled Ryan to me, horrible.

I don't think Ryen looks anything like Wren so tell your dh to knock that off right away wink.gif

I really love Wren. I think it is sweet. I adore Henry and Ezra too (a baby I lost was Henry and I desperately tried to talk my husband into Ezra throughout a couple of pregnancies). Wren Zoe May is really lovely.

Ryen is never going to be pronounced wren. Sorry, but your child will be constantly correcting people.

Wren is nice.

That is very cute. My four boys all have an S and an A in their names which I didn't do on purpose for the first three. We considered Lucas because then they would all have SUA in their names.

NMS . When I read your title I thought it was a word sequence puzzle and my instant thought was Wren, Ryen, Wrong. Your boys' names are awesome, I don't think these options for girls match them but I am name traditionalist or name bore depending on who you talk to.

I have a huge soft spot for Wren, I've grown rather fond of it. I just can't seem to pronounce it right, I probably am, but have some issues with it. lol. Such a very pretty name though

I personally would only spell it Wren. As you said Ryen would have people thinking it's Ryan.

Wren is cute but NMS.
ryen is awful, sorry.

I would never, ever see Ryen and think it was Wren. Ever. I would think it was pronounced Ryan.

Wren is very cute.

Wren is sweet.

I would pronounce Ryen Ry-ENN at best, Ryan at worst. Really don't like it with that spelling, sorry.

I agree with everyone else. Wren is lovely, Ryen is awful.

Lol don't apoligise I was after honest opinons.

I have to say I have not heard of Wren before until it jumped onto our list yesterday.

How cute Ianthe, keep convincing you DH, Ezra is an awesome name, my DH picked it and we are forever getting comments on people that love it.

Henry is a great name too, he hets comments all the time that he is a royal baby, lol he was born the dya of the royal wedding and his name is Henry (Prince Harry) He was named the day of our 20 week scan though so definatley not planned.

Thats so cute that I am not the only one crazy about my little letter theme lol.

I am open to other names with E and R in them, it just can't start or end in E and not end in R as our last name ends in R.

Growing up my dad's best friends wifes name was Renata

She was always called Wren as a NN though.

Renata means reborn and I think would work well with your other names original.gif

Love Wren, it was on my girls list, we had a boy:-)

#17 vanessa71

I think Annabel Wren would work really well, not sure Wren works as a first name with Ezra and Henry.

I do like Wren, but I seem to have trouble saying it, it feels... awkward, somehow?

Ryen is all kinds of wrong.

Your boys names are super awesome.

#19 la di dah

Posted 16 April 2012 - 01:52 PM

I've known girls named Rya - pronounced rye-ah, I would not have worked out Ryen was anything but a Ryan variant.

I really like Wren, though usually I hear it as an easy-going short middle name, a bit more fresh than Rose/Grace. I have a hard time picking middle names for one-syllable first names.

#20 heffalumpsnwoozles

Posted 16 April 2012 - 01:53 PM

What about Lauren? Satisfies the R and N requirement, and you could call her Wren for short.

#21 Guest_Maybelle_*

Posted 16 April 2012 - 02:31 PM

Wren is gorgeous.

As are your boy's names!

#22 ~A2~

Hi there

Could I make a suggestion?  There is a boy at DD's school (in her grade actually) and his name is Wren but is spelt Rhen  - would this work?  

I had not heard of previous to him but just thought it might work for you with the R and N still being in there.

#23 hungryhippo

Posted 16 April 2012 - 02:42 PM

I think Wren is lovely. Spelling as Ryen though doesn't make sense to me. There is no way I would ever look at that and pronounce it 'Ren'. I would definitely say 'Ry-en

#24 ChickyMumma

Posted 16 April 2012 - 02:47 PM

heffalumpsnwoozles - I really love Lauren, BUT.... we already have a Lauren in the family and one of my close friends has a Lauren.


~A2~ - I adore the spelling Rhen for sure, BUT.... Would it be too weird with HENry and rHEN ???

E and R by the way ladies. Doesn't have to have an N at all.

Other names we like are

Rylen

Ariel for a girl - breaks my not starting with an A rule though.

Ezra, Henry and Brier ?
