I think Tyler is a better name for a girl than for a boy.

I prefer Tyler for a boy. It sounds rugged and handsome.
― Anonymous User  4/26/2006
I'd have to agree. I know some rugged and handsome Tylers.

I love Tyler! (For a boy, not a girl.) It's one of my best friend's names, and although a lot of people here hate it because it's "cutesy" and popular, it's still a top for me!
little_kit  4/28/2006
Tyler should be a masculine name only. Great for a boy, meaningless for a girl. The same goes for Jordan.

Not his first name, but I think of Steve Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith.
Dray  8/22/2006
A close friend of mine is called Tylerr -- he spells it with a double R. I've never cared for this name at all, but I definitely don't hate it, because whenever I hear it, I think of a hyper, random, funny, caring, and mischievous person. I find it funny though, that people are calling this name "rugged", because my Tylerr is all about skinny jeans and eyeliner. xD

I confess I really dislike this name--it gives off the image of a weak-willed tattle tale to me.

I prefer this name for a girl. To me, it sounds too feminime for a boy, especially with the "-ler" ending.
Lena Is A Secret  9/15/2006
I love this name, for a boy, but it is really popular, I am acquainted with a large number of people named Tyler.

Tyler seems like a hyperactive, funny, sexy, and smart name! I love it, I would name my son Tyler if I had a son!
― Anonymous User  1/19/2007
This name is more masculine than feminine so I think it should only be a masculine name. Tyler sounds good for a boy rather than a girl.
Angel122006  1/19/2007
Tyler is a good name for a boy, I know a ton of boys named Tyler so it is my favorite name!

In a story, I like to make characters named Tyler boys. But in real life, I love the name for a girl. Tyler Rose sounds beautiful.
writing the world  2/24/2007
Tyler is definitely a boys name in my opinion. However, it does sometimes fit girls. My friend Taylor was called Tyler by our Japanese teacher on the first day of sixth grade. The name works really well for her and it's stuck.
YMPvt  3/4/2007
I think Tyler works great on a girl! I never thought it could be used for a girl but I've grown to like it.
Hola123  4/15/2007
Tyler's a great name. =] It sort of sounds American too.
twinkle toes  5/2/2007
Tyler is a great name for a boy or girl! I named my little girl Tyler and she gets compliments all the time. I also know some guys named Tyler and it fits them too. I love this name.
PPCBH  5/14/2007
For some reason, even though it's a surname, perhaps because of some association I have, this name sounds babyish to me, not very mature.
― Anonymous User  6/2/2007
I think Tyler is a wonderful name for a girl. In fact, I have a close friend on my Color Guard whose name is Tyler Rose and at first, everyone (including my coach) called her "Taylor", but now we're used to it. For a guy, though, this name mostly makes me think of someone who is overly willing to double-cross anyone he meets.
Lilith_Aveline  6/24/2007
I want to name my daughter Tyler. I love it for both a girl and a boy.
Jocelynn  7/5/2007
I definitely think this is a masculine name and should not be given to a girl. As for the ler at the end which someone pointed out, what's that got to do with anything? I love this name and I'm proud to say this is the name of my son, but had he been born a girl I would definitely not have given him this name, no way ha ha!
char79  7/9/2007
Tyler is a BOY name! It's too masculine for a girl. My cousin named her son Tyler and I'm glad she picked it for him. I think Tyler is a wonderful name, but only for a boy.
joanie2007  8/14/2007
Another stupid name. Parents! - give your kid a real name! Not a surname for a first name!
johann14  9/25/2007
I think it's too boyish to be a MANs name. I can't see Tyler being anything but a 10-12 year old boy.

It's a bit common, but I love this name.
dani_08  10/16/2007
This name has gotten WAY too popular. I know at least 6 or 7 Tylers (including girls too).
Mrnda13  1/1/2008
I love this name since it is my oldest grandsons name too! I think it is a great name for either a boy or a girl. You can always spell it different for a girl, yet have the same pronunctiation. Like Tilor, Tylor. I just like it the way it is--Tyler.

Tyler Perry, a play writer and actor, is a famous bearer. He wrote and starred in Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion, just to name a few.
jasmineenimsaj  2/10/2008
I like this name. It sounds sweet, but it can work for an older boy or man also. If you wanted too, you could call him Ty. This is what one family I know does with their two-year-old son.
Patricia Underwood  2/15/2008
Even though it is my brother's name I find it equally suitible for both genders.
― Anonymous User  4/22/2008
This is a pretty cool, simple, short name, but far too common and popular. This would have made a good name for the coolest, most popular, and good-looking guy in high school in some 1985 movie. It won't sound so cool in 2025. The name does admittedly sound sort of like the name of a cool, outgoing, confident, and active guy, but the problem is that it doesn't exactly sound like one of these mature, sophisticated, serious names for educated and intelligent guys past the age of 25. I'm afraid this name is great for young guys, but a bit funny on middle-aged and old guys. For females, this is just a terrible name. Meeting a cute two-year-old girl with adorable curls named Tyler would be hilarious in a movie, but quite depressing in real life. Girly girls will hate this name on themselves, and it only suits tomboyish girls. It'll sound silly on all females past the age of 15, even the androgynous ones, and the name lacks that spunk factor for female indie rocker types as well.
slight night shiver  5/11/2008
I love this name, but for BOYS BOYS BOYS! I hate it on a girl! On a programme on BBC not long ago someone had a daughter and called them Tiyla, said Tyler. To each their own, y'know, but come on.
DontDissMadison  5/15/2008
Number 16 for boys in 2005. I love the name Tyler. It's just sweet, adorable but boyish at the same time. It works for a little girl too, but I prefer it on a boy.

Lucia_Swanne  11/2/2008
I am a girl and this is my name and it really sucks! The worst part about it is when people ask you "What's your name?" and you tell them "Tyler". Next question that is asked is, "Did your parents want a boy?" it gets really annoying. Especially if your middle name is masculine as well, as mine is!
― Anonymous User  11/24/2008
This is my fiance's legal name, but every one just calls him Ty. He doesn't like his name very much, but I think it's a good name, for both a boy and a girl. I gave this name to our daughter (Molly Tyler) when she was born, after her dad.
horsehealeramy  12/20/2008
In my opinion, Tyler should be used only on boys. Girls already use the name "Taylor" (which is now an androgynous name because of that) so I really think Tyler just fits better for boys. It has a more boyish, handsome sound, and picturing that on a girl kinda ruins everything.

meggsxx3  6/10/2009
Wow, I didn't realize this was listed as a unisex name on this site. To me, Tyler is, and always will be, a male name.

Now, even though I have a cousin named Tyler, *and* a friend names Tyler, the first person I think of when I hear this name is Tyler Durden from "Fight Club." But even though the character's crazy, it still doesn't leave a bad taste in my mouth--Tyler is a cool name.
erb816  7/25/2009
This name is boring, trashy, and overused. I know enough of them. Tyler makes me think of either obnoxious popular boys or the hideous singer Steven Tyler.

To the commenter a few comments up; it's hilarious you would think Tyler Rose is beautiful together; ironically, the city of Tyler (Tx) is famous for its yellow rose!

I have known only one guy named Tyler and I think it's a really cool name! I definitely would consider using this for my son someday :)
_0TophasNails_1  7/13/2010
I have always hated this name because a.) it is too popular and b.) I know two Tyler's, one is a creep and the other is a narcissistic jerk. No offense if you like this name though and would want to name a child this.
Ryry1996  5/15/2011
This is, and will always be, a boy's name. It does not sound the least bit feminine. This guys-name-on-a-girl trend is really getting old. Please o PLEASE stop!
That being said, I don't like it much. It make me think of a tall, good-looking basketball player who is overly cocky and has an inflated head.
Black_X  7/13/2011
This was a good name in the 80's for either sex, became too popular in the 90's and now I would only consider it for a boy.

I should know, I am a female born in 1980 named Tyler, I now go by my middle name because I got tired of people asking about my name, 'is it really Tyler and not Taylor?', then they usually get confused and call me Taylor anyways..

The whole trend of naming girls with boy names is really awful, I feel sorry for all the little girls in this generation whose parents willingly did that to them, at least when I was named Tyler it wasn't well established as a masculine name. So many girls today named Elliot, Shawn, Ronnie, etc.. it's as bad as naming a boy Stacy or Tiffany!
― Anonymous User  9/12/2011
Only suited for a boy, and would most definitely sound out of place on a girl. This name is cute but wouldn't fit any boy past their teen years. I know tons of Tylers and while I get the appeal, it doesn't age well, like a lot of very cute names.

Tyler's my name and I like it for boys but I dislike it for girls, due to me growing up with this name I have experienced negativity of other children and teachers often mistake me for a male but it's rather nice being unique, as I am the only Tyler in my school through primary and higher but its gaining popularity which makes me feel less conscious about having a name often thought of as male.

173 people actually named their DAUGHTERS Tyler in the US in 2012. I don't know what was going through their heads, this name doesn't sound feminine at all. I don't like it for boys anyway, it's way too trendy and common and doesn't seem like it'll age well at all.
Oohvintage  7/17/2013
Someone in my family is named Tyler, and someone I'm working with is named Tyler (both guys). When I think of Tyler, I usually think of a guy, but sometimes it can work for a girl as well. I'll admit this name, like Sarah (also the name of someone in my family), is a bit overused. It's still a cute name, though.

My impression of the name reminds me of a certain mischievous boy (my boyfriend/fiancee) and it always makes me jump when I hear this name, however it's because I've jumped so many times that I've realized how common this name is.

My daughter is named Tyler and she has several female friends named Tyler. It is a great name for a girl or boy. I work with people who have traditional as well as unusual names. It doesn't matter if they are 20 or 80. It's a name and people use them everyday. My daughter is a self confident young woman and she would be that way regardless of her name be caused in raised her that way. I am proud to have stepped outside the box to give my child a unique name.

I've always liked this name and, to be honest, found it somewhat attractive—although I could never say why. It seems Tyler is one of those family names that saw a surge in popularity as a given name, joining the likes of Tanner, Taylor, Hunter, Harrison, Jackson, etc. I do think that Tyler is better suited for a boy, but it works for a girl, too. A lot of people have said that it's hard to picture a grown man named Tyler, but I don't believe them.

I named my daughter Tyler after watching the film Point Break when it was first released in the 90's - the female police officer/surfer is called Tyler Ann. I had never heard of another Tyler and had no idea it was unisex. I hate the name now as does my daughter.

This is mainly a BOYS name. If a girl is named Tyler then fine, but it should first be considered a boy's name. Ty for short. Very, very boyish. Makes "Kyle" look like he should be wearing pink ballet slippers.

My name is Tyler, and my middle name is David. I absolutely love my name. It is a modern name and one I am proud to have. Sometimes people simply call me "Ty", but I prefer Tyler. I don't mind being called Tyler David either- but it has to have the "Tyler" in there. All in all, Tyler is a great name- there are quite a few more males named Tyler than female. In fact I do not know any female Tyler's personally. Tyler is a great name, and definitely modern and popular too!

HerculePoirot  6/14/2016
Though I do not like Katie Hopkins she is right. Tyler is definitely one of the worst names about for boys or girls. Let's be honest, unless you are AfroAmerican it sounds chavvy especially when spoken with the delicate lilt of a fine British estuary accent. I imagine white trash boys with this name to be covered in tattoos especially Union Jacks or pitbulls on the neck in full view. Tylers are unlikely to be employed unless working in a prison library. Saying that I have a Tyler in my family and I feel for the poor kid. What did he do to deserve such a vile name.
