The presidential Tyler rocketed up popularity charts in the late 1980s and early 1990s (it ranked Number 9 for that entire decade), along with cousin Taylor, becoming almost pandemic across the land-- and to make matters more confusing, both (especially Taylor) have been used for girls as well. Although Tyler fell out of the Top 25 in 2008, there were still over 12,000 babies named Tyler, so it's not exactly a name that will stand out.
This once-trendy name has been fading for both boys and girls. A top 10 name from 1992 to 2000, t is now at Nuber38 and falling. It was the surname of the tenth US president.
