There isn't one really, but why let that stop us? Ryan is an Irish name derived from the old Gaelic word for king: Righ. The Latin for king is rex which isn't really a name in Latin but there's nothing to stop you using it as a name in English.

Note that Gaelic and Latin are related. They are both members of the Indo-European family of Languages, as is English of course. The Latin word rex and the old Gaelic righ are from the same root.
