Etymology & Historical Origin - Raylan

Raylan is a recent masculine name invention and very distinct to the United States. Because the name is basically made-up, there is no meaning or etymology associated with this name. It’s simply the product of the combination of appealing sounds. Raylan is the male-counterpart to a recently invented female name (Raelynn), and as such it has an androgynous quality that is not very mannish (some parents prefer this). Raylan is akin to other American male name creations such as Rayan, Rayden, Rylan, Kylan and Braylen. It’s difficult to keep track of all of these various sound combinations for sure!

Popularity of the Name Raylan

Raylan is brand-spanking-new to the American male naming charts. He only first appeared in 2011 so we can hardly ascertain his staying-power just yet. The name entered the charts at position #701 which is an impressive first-time debut. American parents are most famous for outright name inventions, so this is just the latest example of a now long list. There’s no meaning behind the name Raylan which makes it a little ho-hum lackluster. But we get the attraction to its sound.

    Literary Characters of the Baby Name Raylan

    Raylan: A Novel (Elmore Leonard) The revered New York Times bestselling author, recognized as “America’s greatest crime writer” (Newsweek), brings back U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, the mesmerizing hero of Pronto, Riding the Rap, and the hit FX series Justified. With the closing of the Harlan County, Kentucky, coal mines, marijuana has become the biggest cash crop in the state. A hundred pounds of it can gross $300,000, but that’s chump change compared to the quarter million a human body can get you—especially when it’s sold off piece by piece. So when Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them. But Raylan isn’t your average marshal; he’s the laconic, Stetson-wearing, fast-drawing lawman who juggles dozens of cases at a time and always shoots to kill. But by the time Raylan finds out who’s making the cuts, he’s lying naked in a bathtub, with Layla, the cool transplant nurse, about to go for his kidneys. The bad guys are mostly gals this time around: Layla, the nurse who collects kidneys and sells them for ten grand a piece; Carol Conlan, a hard-charging coal-mine executive not above ordering a cohort to shoot point-blank a man who’s standing in her way; and Jackie Nevada, a beautiful sometime college student who can outplay anyone at the poker table and who suddenly finds herself being tracked by a handsome U.S. marshal. Dark and droll, Raylan is pure Elmore Leonard—a page-turner filled with the sparkling dialogue and sly suspense that are the hallmarks of this modern master.
