“Hi, Tyler.” “No, it’s Kyler.” “Sorry, Kyle.” Prepare your son for this frequent exchange if you name him Kyler. But that’s not to discourage you or change your mind—it’s a creative name that American parents invented and many love. Kyler may have been a variant of the Dutch surname Cuyler, which came from Kuilart, an occupational name in the Netherlands. It has been on the baby-name charts since the 1980s.
