Instead of going:
MyClass ryan = new MyClass();
can you take the Input from a JTextField and Use it for the Object name of MyClass?
If So where should I continue to look, or what other option do I have.

Yes, look at
Class.forName("classname"). This returns a Class object of the type in the argument.
Class myClass = Class.forName("classname")
;
then
Object myNewObject = myClass.newInstance().
