Meaning:protecting hands
Baby will hold your heart in his teeny tiny hands, if he doesn't already, but with a name like Raylen you'll know it's safe. This British name means "protecting hands," so if you envision baby being kind and caring, it'll be spot on. It's an uncommon variant of Ray, so baby Raylen probably won't bump into too many kids on the playground with the same name. Raylen has French origins too, where the meaning of "caretaker" can hold a similarly sweet association.
