A to Z Challenge - It's RAY Day - the letter R rules

 It was a choice between rapscallion or Ray day. Guess I shall salute my husband who is a bit of a rascal, with a tweak of rogue, and a sweet romancer.

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?
Rad (English) one who provides counsel
Rafe (Irish) a tough man
Rafferty (Gaelic) one who wields prosperity
Ryder (English) accomplished horseman
Ruiz (Spanish)  a good friend
Roe (English) one who hunts deer  (Bingo - we might have a winner)

Now the ladies - we'll do a female Rae - means innocent lamb
Rainbow (American)  symbolizes promise
Rhedyn (welsh) resembling a fern
Rohini (Indian) a beautiful woman
Ryo (Japanese)  an excellent woman

This has been a salute to my RAY of sunshine.
I feel like Sesame Street - sponsored by the letter R


  1. Ray has received rave reviews from one who respects and reveres his name. He looks and sounds like all of the remarkable 'R Men'. Elmo, Big Bird and Cookie Monster would be so proud to be mentioned in your Ray of Sunshine post.
