Skyler -
keeping with the times

Skyler is a fairly recent phenomenon. In the past, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents. Then, unexpectedly, Skyler cried out for attention, reaching its peak in popularity at #266 in our SmartGenius statistics in the year 2000. People over 50 probably didn't have classmates named Skyler, for there were many years in which not a single parent chose this first name for their newborn child. Although it also has never been in the top 100 of most popular first names, Skyler seems to have been in vogue for a while, especially since the beginning of the new millennium.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Skyler was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter S is a real popular first letter for given names.
