Miles is at the height of its popularity and quickly closing in on the ranks of the top 100 boy’s names. This dashing English form of Milo has now become an American standard, thanks to legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis whose larger-than-life presence infused music with improvisational cool. Captain Myles Standish was an English military officer who sailed to New England on the Mayflower with the Pilgrims. Actor Larenz Tate, actress Mayim Bialik, and actress Joan Cusack all have sons named Miles.
