Meaning:Rye clearing; Race of the Veiled One
Ryleigh is a gender-neutral name of Irish origin, ultimately derived from the ancient surname O'Raghallaigh. Hailing from County Cavan in Ireland, Raghallaigh's meaning remains a mystery today. One theory we love is Ryleigh's potential endearment, "Race of the Veiled One," from the elements rás and Caillech. In Celtic mythology and faith, An Chailleach is honored as a Mother Goddess deeply associated with the earth and mountains. She is often depicted wearing a cloak and is sometimes called "The Veiled One." Ryleigh also has Old English origins as a habitational name for those living on or near a "rye clearing." Blossoming with nature and divinity, Ryleigh embraces baby's journey to fulfillment and harmony.
