Gender: F Meaning of Carlyle: "from the walled city" Origin of Carlyle: Variation of Carlisle, English

Might Carlyle (or Carlisle) be the next Carly, which of course was the update on Carla? Ten girls were given the Carlisle spelling in 2012 (vs. 46 boys) but the Carlyle version did not make the SSA list for girls although it was registered for ten boys. But it's a name we think we'll hear more of for both genders.
