can you help me brainstorm for names that start with R. My father passed away Jan 11th and his name was Ron. I was hoping to name our baby with a middle name that starts with R but am having a hard time finding one Id like. Thanks!!!

I could start listing random names, but I don't really know your style so well and thereby don't know a good place to start. I think maybe you should give the Name Voyager a whirl...start with Ra and then go through the rest of the vowels, looking at what sorts of options you get. Nymbler may be a little less useful. It took me 4 pages to get to the first "R" offering after using Violet & Grace as search parameters (that "R" name was "Reason," though, which is kinda cool).

Do you like classic names or unique names? Some names that start with R that I have heard are: Rain, River, Ryder, Revelin (Revy), Richard, Rhys (pronounced "Reese")...

Rowan/Rohan is pretty popular right now. In fact my nephew who's due any day now is going to be Rohan. Along that vein is also Roman.

I was named after my father whose name is Ron. My name is Ronna - like Donna with an R. Personally I like it a lot.

Other R names:

Riven
Ronson (I once knew the cutest little boy with this name)
Ryland
Roan (Pronounced like loan)

You ladies are awesome, thanks for the suggestions.
We definately like different, possibly nature related names. And thats a real interesting and different name, Ronna! I would never think of that.
