Ray

Meanings and history of the name Raylan

A modern twist on the name Raymond. From the Old Norman French Raimund (wise protection), which is derived from the Germanic Raginmund, a compound name composed of the elements ragin (advice, judgment, counsel) and mund (hand, protection). However since Raylan only has the Ray portion of the name it means "advice, judgment, counsel" or "wise".

The name is also sometimes given to girls, but there are 15 boys named Raylan for every girl Raylan.
