What does everyone think of it?
I like the name but never met anyone with it.

Please, please watch Katie Hopkins on this morning talking about childrens names, you may change your mind about tyler lol ;-)

I have a Tyler, suits him down to the ground. I don't get the prejudice about the name

lilibet Thu 29-Aug-13 15:47:40

No, sorry but please do not do this. Rightly or wrongly people will judge and label you and your son.

Thesimplethings Thu 29-Aug-13 15:49:02

But what label? hmm

I like it and dont understand all of this hype and prejudice over names.

I certainly wouldnt raise an eyebrow at it but then again one of mines a Riley which seems to produce the image of a young, fag smoking whilst pushing buggy, screeching mothergrin

My 14 ds1 is Tyler <shrugs>

I watched that woman is so wrong. You can have tyler and Alexander from one family .... Wow she is something.

I'm working in Canada at the moment and this name came up recently as a Chinese colleague wants to pick a Western and a Chinese name for his DC, and had Tyler on his possible list. The Canadian-born colleagues immediately reacted that he shouldn't pick it as it is a bit 'trailer trash'... I don't know if it has the same perception in all of North America though, or back in Britain, as I've never met one back home.

I've never though of Tyler as being a chavvy or a trashy name, I really like it smile

usualsuspect Thu 29-Aug-13 22:25:45

I love the name Tyler.

blueshoes Thu 29-Aug-13 23:22:03

No

I'm NOT a fan of KH but this name has now become one which is now associated with Chantelle.....

AnyoneButLulu Thu 29-Aug-13 23:36:59

It's not generally associated with the higher socio-economic classifications. Entirely up to you whether you give a fig about that.

I like Tyler but prefer Taylor but that's more unisex confused I love the nickname Ty too.

I wouldn't call a child 'Tyler' any more than I would call him 'Plumber' or 'Mechanic'.

bellabelly Thu 29-Aug-13 23:52:46

Nooooooo!!!! Don't do it.

mikkii Thu 29-Aug-13 23:54:50

I know one. His name suits him.

Sorry, I'm too middle class for it.

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Fri 30-Aug-13 00:01:23

No. Doesn't pass the go anywhere test for me.

DaleyBump Fri 30-Aug-13 00:09:32

I think it sounds quite common but that's because I know so many 0-4 year old Tylers that it's getting a bit old.

BlueStarsAtNight Fri 30-Aug-13 07:58:13

I really hate it. I don't like to agree with Katie Hopkins on anything but to me I'm afraid it does sound common and dare I say it chavvy!

I can think of loads, age 5 to 40. it's an ordinary name to me.
The list of famous Tylers includes Olympic athletes, a gay rights activist, quite a few performers and other athletes, and "the highest paid man in entertainment".

The only Tyler I know is a very senior executive in a global business. Doesn't really fit the stereotype discussed here...

The "go anywhere" test?

What on earth is that?

Surely people can go anywhere regardless of whether you like their name or not?
