I didn't know how it was pronounced for the longest time. Before naming your child this, I'd think about the pronunciation issues that will occur.

I wouldn't name your child this, because nobody will pronounce it right. Most people will pronounce it "Shuyler" or "Shuller".

Schuyler doesn't mean scholar in Dutch. The Dutch word for scholar is scholier or student.
The basic meaning of Schuyler is someone who seeks shelter (from bad weather).

The meaning of "scholar" makes no sense. The Dutch word for scholar is "geleerde". Schuyler seems like it's an old spelling of schuiler, which comes from the verb schuilen, which means "to take shelter". Therefore, Schuyler means "person who takes shelter".

After doing some more research on this name, I believe the Dutch name may originally have been an adaptation of the German "Schüler", which derives from the word for school and means student.

It took me quite a while to realize that this is a form of Skyler. When said aloud, I admit that this has an interesting ring to it, but that does not eliminate the fact that it is incredibly juvenile, unprofessional, and (in this case, for the spelling) hideous. This version is only listed as male, but to be honest, I have only ever seen Schuyler used on girls (though I have seen plenty of boy Skylers).
Another part of the difficulty circling this name, which has been mentioned by other posters, is the intense confusion regarding pronunciation... before I knew that this, essentially, is Skyler, I would mouth the name to myself, attempting to figure it out -- SHIE-ler, SHOO-yler, SKOO-ler, and finally it dawned on me: SKIE-ler.

I personally love this spelling of Skyler/Skylar. It makes it look more sophisticated.
