meaning:Created Name
origin: American


Origin: English

Meaning: Tile Maker

Super-trendy in the ’90s (it averaged a number nine ranking for the decade and peaked at five in ’93 and ’94), Tyler laid the early groundwork for the last-name-as-a-first-name movement. It’s been falling back down the charts for a while now and just lost its top-25 position, though just barely. Tyler’s also part of another naming tradition: The practice of using one’s profession as a surname. In this case, the name stands for “one who makes or lays tiles.” (Note: That’s a past tradition, and totally fine if your little Tyler grows up to be a doctor or an accountant.)

Current U.S. popularity rank: 2010: 27
