    Default Which spelling do you prefer?

    Ok, DF and I are pretty set on a name for DS2, scheduled to arrive next week. But I am having second thoughts on the spelling.

    I thought I preferred the anglicised spelling - Reece.

    But now I think I want the traditional spelling - Rhys.

    Unintentionally, it will mean both DS's have names of Welsh origin, so the traditional spelling is a little appealing.

    What do YOU prefer? Reece or Rhys?

    Rhys. I feel Reece is more the feminine spelling. I love the name btw also either are really ok. I do think if your other ds is a welsh name then keeping it original spelling is better.

    Rhys for sure as Reece seems more feminine looking to me.
