aye my name is Myles, and people always say "how many miles have you run today Myles?" or "I would walk 500 miles.." It's annoying sometimes but I'm cool with it, I think I'm the only Myles in my school

beachbear Says:


The only Myles I've ever met was male. Myles is plenty masculine. Miley is feminine.

MylesS Says:


My name is Myles and I'm a guy. I dig my "y" because it distinguishes the proper noun (name) Myles from the measurement of distance, miles. I love my name and have mixed feelings about its new popularity. I always liked being the only Myles or Miles in the room.

This is how I normally see the name spelled. I have met one or two female Myles though but this is a popular boy's spelling.
