If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Tayler.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Tayler -
keeping with the times

Tayler is a phenomenon of Generation X and Y. Previously, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents. Schoolkids of the early 20th century probably didn't have classmates named Tayler - until this very name unexpectedly cried out for attention and peaked in popularity at rank number 261 in 1993. Although it has never reached the top 100 list, this girls' name seems to have been in vogue for a while, which makes Tayler really in tune with her generation.

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