Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Lyle sounds like the name of a creepy weirdo. I've never liked it, it just skeeves me out. It doesn't help that this is the name of one of the murderous Menendez brothers.

I don't like this name really. It doesn't sound strong or masculine.

Very unique. I need to look into this name more!

For some very weird reason this name sounds vaguely feminine to me. Perhaps it's because it sounds a little bit like Lily.

As interesting and peculiar this is to me I like the sound and rarity of it. A cool athletic boy name or pompous butler sounding name. I have no issues with Lyle. Sometimes soft sounds for guys are really nice in comparison to harsh sounding names.

The VeggieTales film Lyle the Kindly Viking, which is about sharing, stars Junior Asparagus as Lyle, who is, not surprisingly, a kindly viking. One of my favorite VeggieTales movies!

I love writing and if I ever have a butler character, I am definitely considering Lyle! (And Kingsley as the last name!)

I don't really like Kyle, but for some reason I really like this name. Maybe it's because it's less common, I don't know. It's a shame it's not in the top 1000 anymore, its got a nice ring to it! It makes a nice middle name too (: I guess it sounds kind of feminine, but you're better off just using it for a boy and using Lisle for a girl.

This name is weird, but I like it for some reason.

This name sounds pretty shady...

I think Lyle is a great name. But I do agree with an above poster, that Lyle is better suited to someone in academia than athletics.

I think this would be a good break from the over-used Kyle, I think the two l's being so close makes it a little hard to pronounce but overall, I would name a son this.

One of my friends' name is Lyle. I think I like the name because it's not too common and it's pretty nice sounding. However, I can't really imagine it being used on someone very big or athletic. I can really only picture it on a loveable nerd or someone more into academics.

Lyle Gorch, an important character in Peckinpah's Wild Bunch, played by Warren Oates.

I know a girl named Lyle, and for that reason I find it quite feminine. I'm sure if the only time I heard it was on a guy, I would find it masculine, but since my first impression of it was for a girl it just seems to fit for a girl to me.

I've heard this used as a nickname for Carlisle.
