Popular in the 1920s - Robert and Richard and Ruth
2010 - Ryan, Robert for boy names
Riley and Rachel rule the girls
Ray (means a wise protector) is actually his middle name, but that's what everyone calls him. Let's see what else he could be - does he look like a?

Now the ladies - we'll do a female Rae - means innocent lamb
