Miles is a weird name. Like do you want to run a mile? Miles is a terrible name. Usually Miles is a name someone goes by because they are transgender and nobody likes transgender people because society is messed up like that but oh welllllllll.

I really like this name, somehow. It's up there with Milo for one of my favorites for a man.
Perhaps it's because I really liked the Ace Attorney series at some point.
I would totally use this for a character or something like that.

This name makes me think of the Unit of Measurement. Anyways, I don't care for it.

People don't name their sons Meters, Feet, Inches or Yards, so I don't see why Miles is a name to me.

Takes too long to say. The word 'Miles' sums it up completely.

My name is Miles and I am a 43 yr old male. My grandfather's name was Miles and my son's name is Miles. It is a unique name and I love it. Women love it and I hope my son passes down the name to his son as well!

I'd hate it if anyone called me MILO for short, that is a entirely different name and takes away from its Irish herritage for me! Thanks!

This name was quite popular in England during the tudor era, as well as in the late 1800's- early 1900's. There are records of a baby born in 1661 named Miles Long, poor kid.

Miles Davis was born Miles Dewey Davis III. His father and grandfather were also named Miles. My first choice for a son is Miles Henry, as long as the name doesn't get too popular. This name can fit young boys as well as adult men, and personally I've never met a Miles in my life. The fact that it's a word doesn't really bother me, we use plenty of everyday words as names. Also, I think Milo would be a cute nickname :)

I really hope this name stops becoming so popular, I'd like to use it some day!

I love the name Miles! (Not Myles though, it seems too modern and childish to me) its really unique without being weird and unheard of, and it can suit every age. Definitely will consider this for one of my kids!

Very nice, smart-sounding masculine name. Though I know a girl named Miles and it just sounds awful for a feminine name. It exudes masculinity.

Miles Straume, a character from the TV show LOST who can 'communicate' with spirits to 'read their minds' and find out how they died, etc.

As my username suggests, my first name is Miles, and I like it because it has a sort of timeless feel to it, something modern, yet starting back so old. I had no idea what it meant, and it just makes me like bearing it all the more! And it's not necessarily a downside that it is a unit of measurement, I like the nickname "Meters".

My friend just named her little boy, Miles. I think it's a cute name for a baby boy. The name ages well too. The name is suitable for a child and a grown individual.

This name is alright, but I think the name Miles is a little silly. It reminds me to much of measurement. Maybe somewhere with Kilometers, but not here.

I like this name very much. I prefer this spelling over Myles, too, but only slightly.

This name is one of those that was used in countless teen movies of the 90's along with Mason and Max, all of which are ugly sounding.

What a great name for a boy. Concise, strong, not too common, and yet it has a certain presence and beauty. The historical precedents are amazing, particularly Miles Davis. Definitely on my top ten (both genders) list.

As my username states I am a girl (a fourteen year old girl) named Miles. I love my name and I am glad to have a name as memorable and beautiful. Please do not think of this name as strictly a male name, it is not!

I like this name! I think it's very cool and it's not a very common name either. I would call my child, if he were a boy, Miles. Also a two-tailed fox is called Miles 'Tails' Prower in the Sonic series which is cool!

I do not think the pronunciation of MIE-ulz is quite accurate because that suggests there are two syllables. Myles is one syllable, so it should be MYLZ. [noted -ed]

I found this on http://www.irishclans.com/articles/irishbabynames.html for the name Myles.

"An alternative spelling of Miles. Bryan O'Nolan (1911-66) used the pen-name Myles na Gopaleen - a name originally created by Dion Boucicault (1822-90) - for a number of his works and for his Irish Times column."
