I love this name. I come originally from a place called Tilehurst in Reading, UK. Historically, they made tiles there. I feel like that gives me a more meaningful link to this name. I do like the sound, too.

I actually prefer this name on a girl. I don't know why but it sounds more girly than boyish.
