Gender: F Origin of Skye: Scottish place-name Skye's Popularity in 2014: #368

The e-addition takes the name from slightly hippie-ish 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 fewer than three soaps—All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital—for decades. More recently, it has entered the US Top 400 at Number 368, while it's Number 34 in its native Scotland, and 91 in England and Wales.

A lovely middle-name choice.
