that's neat. what is the origin of the name? I have always liked it maybe because a couple actors I enjoy have it in their name and I liked the character in the books (always wished KK would have written more his relationship with Camber's family)

It is a Welsh name; sometimes also spelled Reese.

Depending on which baby name website you use, it means either "enthusiasm" "ardent one," or "running."

I knew a man named Rhys.  He pronounced it to rhyme with "peace," not "breeze."

DD was nearly Briony (chickened out at the last minute, but she is Kathryn, so I figure that's ok!) and if she'd been a boy she was going to be Rory.  I actually love the Gaelic spelling Ruairidh, but no chance of getting that one spelled correctly!  I like the name Conall too - shame how he turned out.

When I have had to give directions over the phone, to customers wishing to visit our offices in Taff's Well (north-west of Cardiff) I have sometimes said that we are opposite Rhys Michael's depot. They have taken that at face value, and found us opposite Rhys Davies' depot without any problem.

Rory is, I think, Irish; Rorie is Scots.

Rory is, I think, Irish; Rorie is Scots.

Although she lives in England now, Annie is a Scot, IIRC, and her husband is from Northern Ireland, hence her interest in the Gaelic form of the name. (Rory or Rorie would just be more modern spelling variants of the original. )

And using the old spelling would avoid choosing one side or the other.

I didn't name any of my children after Deryni universe characters, but one matches and two are close. I have a Caitlin (Caitrin), Brendan, Austin (no match), and Jillian (Jilyan). My older children's dolls were named for KK characters: Bronwyn and Kelson.

The featured article on Wikipedia today (Sunday 3 May) concerns the "Javan slow loris" (Nycticebus javanicus), apparently a species of primate native to an Indonesian island, but really! Two KK names together?

At least it's not Javan and Hubert together although I'm not sure that Javan and Loris are very much better.

I named my dog Camber, and my cat Ansel, and will continue with Deryni names, like "Arilan" for a cat if I decide to get another.
 Always loved the names "Kelson" & "Javan" and in general love Gaelic names.  Evaine is nice. One not in the books, but which is Old English/Norman is "Leceline". So formally its that, and nickname is "Lee"
I am named after my Scots side but are more mundane, Douglas, & Scott

Where rest, at length,
the lord and slave,
They'll wondering ask, how hands so vile,
Could conquer hearts so brave?"
