Etymology & Historical Origin - Skyler

Skyler is a spelling variant of Skylar which comes from the Dutch surname Schuyler (meaning "scholar, school teacher"). See Schuyler for more information. The name was brought to America by way of Dutch settlers in New York in the 17th century. A notable name bearer, Philip Schuyler, became a U.S. senator from the state of New York in the late 18th century after distinguishing himself as a Revolutionary War hero. Schuyler was the first form of the name to be used as a male given name influenced by this early important American figure. The names Skylar and Skyler are simpler phonetic renderings of the name Schuyler that became popular in the United States in the late 20th century.

Popularity of the Name Skyler

What’s interesting about this unisex name is that Skylar is the spelling choice most popular for little girls while Skyler is preferred for the little boys. Skyler first appeared on the U.S. charts for boys in 1981 and then came into use as a girl’s name in 1990. For boys, the spelling Skyler has been quite a bit more popular. American parents are twice as likely to use Skyler on their little boys as girls (although the reverse is true for the spelling Skylar with an “a”). In any case, this is a very non-gender-specific name. It’s neither distinctly masculine nor feminine. If you like this name and want to man-it-up a little for your boy, we’d suggest the original spelling (Schuyler). It’s phonetically different, but it is the actual name of the American Revolutionary War hero. Skyler/Skylar can easily be shortened to Sky(e) but this pet form is much more girly. If you think you have a little ‘scholar’ on the way, Skyler is a great choice for a name!
