How would you spell Skylah? Skyla, Skylar, Skyler, Skylah??

What names could you suggest that are of a similar style? We're trying to find different but pretty names for girls.

Definetly Skyler or Skylar.

I prefer it on a boy tbh. But for a girl I'd probably go with Skylar. Or just Skye.

I am not  fan of names with the AH added on the end - Taylah, Skylah etc.  It makes it sound like people can't be bothered to say the name properly.

I have an 11 year old Skylah. I understand lots of people hate it (particularly those opposed to any names that were invented post 1898), but DD loves it. And I like it.

DS would've been Skylar if he was a girl (not too keen on the ah ending, so it was either the ar or er, but we decided on the ar as it looks a bit more feminine).

We chose this name because of its Dutch origins (albeit, spelt Schuyler - but I thought that would be too difficult for English speakers).

I agree. Skylah must be no.1 on the list of Bogan names. It's not even a real named but made up by some Bogan and unfortunately people have copied it  sick.gif


That's a bit harsh. I don't mind it OP.

It's really NMS, but I see it as a boys name more than a girls name.

I thought Skyler was a legitimate boys name? I like it. If go Skyler for a boy and Skyla for a girl. I pronounce them differently though.

Ok if no one likes it, but does anyone have any different/pretty girl name suggestions?

I know Schuyler is traditional, but I don't mind Skyler as an easier variant. Skylah I don't like.

#14 WithSprinkles

Posted 21 December 2012 - 12:03 PM

I prefer Skye to Skyler (as I see Skyler as more of a boys name).. but if I had to choose the spelling I'd go with Skyler.

Other suggestions that might suit your criteria:

- Summer
- Holly
- Zara
- Winter
- Sage
- Scarlett
- Laney
- Delilah (Lila)

ETA: If you like unisex names: Blair, Blake, Quinn & Morgan could be possibilities?

I may be one of the only people here that quite likes Schuyler.

What about Saskia? That's all that comes to mind at the moment!

Or just Skye if it is a name you really love.

I wouldnt use it for a boy, just doesnt appeal to me as a boys name although I know it is a legitmate male name

I agree with above re spelling though -  I would use Skyler or Skylar for a boy and Skyla or Skylah for a girl and pronoucne them slightly differently, the way Peter and Peta are slightly different.

I quite like Skyla/Skylah as a girl's name, although I do prefer Skye (I really love the name Skye)  - probably just reflects my preference fro shorter simpler names.

some people dont like Skyla, no problems with that - but once again I do wish people could say that nicely with out the silly bogan names comments rolleyes.gif

I prefer the spelling Skyler, don't think it's that bad OP you should use it if you love it.

Skylar, for a boy.

I love the name. I wanted to spell my DDs name Schuyler, but as I got my wish with the name we used I was happy to go with DPs wish to spell phonetically - so we have a Skyla.

Given the name is pre 17th century I think it has a reasonable history behind it - but liking or hating it is all a matter of preference I guess.

Other names I was keen on because I felt they had similar sound (with the meanings I found for them):
Isla (Scottish river)
Gaia or Kaia (Earth)
Kyla
Seva (peace, tranquility)
Sceolan - pron Skyo-lin (fleet, agile)
Naoise - pron Nee-sha(bond)
Bryna (Strength)
Saoirse (freedom, liberty)

As far as the spelling, if I had my time again I'd probably push a little harder for Schuyler.

If I was using it at all, I'd spell it Schuyler.

Similar style:
Twila/Twyla
Talya/Talia (pr. tahl-ya)
Vesper
Ember
Winter
Soleil is a big favourite of my husband's.
Sabrina is a big favourite of mine
Selena
Briar - I like the fairy-tale/nature name quality with the -er ending.

I just cant get past that episode of Southpark where the sister of one of the characters is going on about Skyler (her bf)...

I'm not really a fan of it, OP.

In other news, la di dah just reminded me of an old favorite of mine - Vesper - that I must remember to put on my list! Thanks!

Sorry OP, it's NMS at all. I'm generally not a fan of any "lah" names.

I've only seen it spelt Skyler - female lead on Breaking Bad, and my DS teddy bear original.gif That is the spelling I would use out of those given.
