Hi Jennifer,

I tried looking up info on my son’s name, Siler Everette, but only found Syler (assuming that is the same name kust a different spelling? ??) What are the origins & meanings of his name? And can you add them to the site. Thanks so much!

Trisha V.

Hi Trisha,

Most likely it is a variation of the name Syler, which is either a combination of Sy and Tyler or a variation on the English name Schuyler. Schuyler is pronounced like Skylar.

Hope that helps…
Jennifer
