Rory is a given name of Goidelic origin. It is an anglicisation of the Irish: Ruairí/Ruaidhrí/Ruaidhrígh/Raidhrígh/RuaraidhScottish Gaelic: Ruairidh and Manx: Rauree and is common to the Irish, Highland Scots and their diasporas. The meaning of the name is "red-haired king", from ruadh ("red-haired" or "rusty") and rígh ("king"). In Ireland and Scotland it is a masculine name (there is no record of the name being used for a female in Ireland since at least 1965, and there have only been six instances of its use among females in Scotland since 1974; in contrast, it was the 72nd- and 9th-most popular name among boys in Ireland and Scotland, respectively, in 2018). In the United States the name is given more to boys (881 babies in 2018 in the US) than to girls (529 babies in 2018 in the US).
The standard Scottish Gaelic pronunciation is /ˈruə̯.rʲɪ/, and in Munster Irish /rəiˈrʲiː/. In English, it is typically pronounced as English: /ˈrɔːri/ (ROR-ee). In Classical Gaelic, the name was written Ruaidhrigh, and in Old IrishRuaidríg /ruaðʲr͈ʲiːʝʲ/ (Proto Celtic *roudo-riks). There are numerous other recorded variations of the name such as Ruaidrí, Ruaidhrí, Ruairdhrí, Rhuairidh, Ruaridh, Rhuaridh, Ruarídh, Ruarí, Roighrí, Rauridh or Raighrí. Historically, it has also been anglicised by replacement with the Germanic name Roderick, of similar meaning (leader) and in some cases the also etymologically unrelated names Roger and Ray.
