Do you like the name Rhenen?

North Carolina couple Simon and Aletha Arkley spent some time in the Netherlands as missionaries. While there, they took a short vacation to the town of Rhenen (pronounced RAY-nen, roughly).

The town must have made a big impression on them, because when they welcomed a daughter on February 18, 2014, they named her Rhenen.

Do you like Rhenen as a baby name? Do you think it works better for girls or for boys?
