Gender: F Origin of Skye: Scottish place-name Skye's Popularity in 2013: #427

Popularity: this week.

The 'e'-addition takes the name from slightly hippieish nature name to the place name of a picturesque island off the coast of Scotland, and for baby namers it's by far the more popular spelling.

Skye entered the girls' list in 1987, a year after the introduction of Skye Chandler, a popular character on no less than three soaps--All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital-- for decades. More recently, it has lingered in the 400's, while it's Number 45 in its native Scotland, and 84 in England and Wales.

A lovely middle-name choice.
