Etymology & Historical Origin - Ryland

Ryland is the transferred use of an English surname originating from a topographical feature. It is derived from the Old Anglo-Saxon “rhy, rhee” meaning ‘stream’ and “land” meaning ‘land’ to signify the adjoining lands by the stream. The Coat of Arms associated with this surname includes the motto: “Dum spiro spero” which translates to “While I have breath, I hope”. The last name Ryland dates back to the 14th century – the given name Ryland dates back less than 10 years and appears only to be used in the United States.

Popularity of the Name Ryland

Ryland did not appear on the U.S. male naming charts until 2003 making it a very new and modern choice. The name’s sudden appearance on the charts is clearly following the surname trend, but it also appears to be another spin on names like Ryan, Rylan and Rylee. There’s not much one can say about this name yet; it hasn’t been around long enough! Plus, it’s only gone from complete obscurity to very low-moderate usage. It’s not as popular as Rylan for boys, but it does appear to be on the upswing. Does Ryland have staying power? It’s too soon to tell. While only lightly used, Ryland still feels very trendy and somewhat fashionable. Given the meaning of this name, we can’t help but think of the novel and movie “A River Runs Through It”.
