Reilly

  • means valiant. Liked it on "Buffy", when it was her boyfriend's name, but I think it's better suited for a girl.

  • (my daughter's name) - I think this is a great Irish-sounding name, and I needed to carry on the Irish somehow, since I married a Scottish Swede!
  • Reilly Brianne just makes me think of a cute sweet little girl.

    Reilly is usually the Irish form of the name pronounced /RY lee/-- it's an anglicization of the Irish surname Raghallaigh. Scholars aren't sure what this means exactly, some suggest "valiant."
