"from Wylye"

Wylie Origin and Meaning

The name Wylie is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Scottish origin meaning "from Wylye".
Wylie is a friendly, nonchalant rodeo name with an almost irresistible charm; parents may pick up on its pleasant similarity to the more popular, unisex Riley. Although more masculine, we see Wylie as working as well for boys and girls (Richard Anderson used it for his daughter in 1999). Wylie (or the interchangeable Wiley) can also be an original and authentic way to honor an ancestral William. We don't, however, recommend you spell the name the way Corey Parker did: Wylei. Why lay?

Wiley Post was the first to solo pilot a plane around the world, and contemporary foodies know Wylie Dufresne as a renowned chef, a leading proponent of the molecular gastronomy movement. Elinor Wylie was an inspirational poet.
