I love the name Morgan and I love the name Riley, but personally I think the spelling "Riley" is masculine and I would go with a more feminine version of the name which is "Reilly" (my fav) or "Ryleigh"......just my preference. :-)

I prefer Riley. If we have a girl we are naming her Niamh - I love Irish names

I like them both. I work at an elementary school and Riley seems to be more of a boys name than a girls. But the girls that are named Riley are spelled feminine. Rylie, Reilly, Ryleigh. I like the name. (If it makes you feel better, my DD name is Emersan and she is always mistaken for a boy...apparently its a boys name although I have only met girls with her name).

I also like Morgan too. I have never met a Morgan that I didnt like either!

I picked Riley because I think it is a unique name for a girl and I think that Morgan is pretty common!

In the uk, both those names are used mostly for boys but if it was my choice, I would choose Morgan.
