  • Sorry... I don't really like it. I think an name that starts with X is cool, but Xyler seems like Tyler and you just wanted it to start with X. What about Xavier?

    IMO if you have a controversial name in mind you should just not tell anyone until after the baby is born. Then you can save yourself a bunch of negative comments.

  • A little weird to be honest. I wouldn't want to have to correct everyone that tries to say my name my whole life.

  • Pronounced like Zyler. He would even spell it that way. He just wants *that* name. Ugh..don't know what to do!

  • Not my favorite name. My husband wanted to name one of our sons Xavier and I told him no because I didn't want to call my son a name I didn't like for the rest of my life. We both agreed upon and liked Xander so that is what we named our son. Maybe you need to tell your husband how much you don't like the name.

  • I like it and think it is rather unique! =) but I am all for unique but not crazy stupid unique and this one is short and easy and different!

  • I like it!.....I was always fond of the name "Xander/Zander", and Xyler/Zyler isn't much different. I like the "unusual" and/or "unique" names myself, but DH doesn't...we compromised. The question shouldn't be "do WE like it:", YOU like it?

  • well what name do you like? i rather it spelt with the z, at least that way you know how to say it. my name is irish and no american can read it or say it right once they know how to spell it, it can be very annoying,
