My grandmother was registered at birth with the given name Rayler,

Is it unique to her (and one of her descendants), or does anyone in the
group have a similarly named ancestor?
I have a female ancestor named Rayner (spelled with "n" not "l"),
who was likewise of Dutch Jewiish background). "Rayner" could
easily be mis-heard or mis-registered as "Rayler."

I have also met a Jewish woman named "Rayner" which I assume may
be a Dutch girl's name -- though perhaps with a different spelling
in Dutch?
