Reply to: Challenging the origins of Skylar - any ideas? by Liala
It doesn't say Schular, but Schuyler. I can understand that an English speaking person seeing Schuyler would pronounce this roughly like Skylar, so I would think it's plausible that that is how the name came into being.

Also English speakers managed to turn Breukelen into Brooklyn and Baas into Boss for example, so why would Schuyler into Skyler be so ahrd to imagine?

(for the record: I'm Dutch)
