    Honestly I don't have a clue

    I guess its one of those "new" American names. But I don't like having a name associated with little ones Even though I'm around the only "Tyler" I know it still gets complicated when I am on the street and someone yells "Tyler" I simply ignore it now, and if its for me, they should come over I'm not walking that far!
