Reply to: meaning? by Wyla
You said you were named after your father, Wiley but your grams spelled your name Wyla. Obviously, she intended for it to be a female version of Wiley (even though she just made it up - if it's not here or on any baby name sites or in any name books then it more than likely did not exist before it was given to you), then Wyla has the same meaning as Wiley, according to your grandmother.

So, with regards to what I just said, your name Wyla means the same as this:

Gender: Masculine
Usage: English
Pronounced: WIE-lee [key]
From a surname which was derived either from a place name meaning "temple clearing" in Old English or from a nickname meaning "wily, tricky" in Middle English.

Which you could have found by simply searching Behind the Name.
