Gender: M Meaning of Tyler: "maker of tiles" Origin of Tyler: English occupational name Tyler's Popularity in 2016: #91

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 around 4,500 babies named Tyler in 2016, so it's not exactly a name that will stand out.

Tyler is just one of many presidential surnames in use today: others include Jackson, Truman, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Madison.
