Amber or Skyler ? Please help me decide

Out of the 2, I prefer Skyler

DorisIsAPinkDragon Thu 23-Dec-10 17:04:53

Amber by far

Really dislike skyler tho' so probably not on the same wavelength

orangepoo Thu 23-Dec-10 17:05:56

I much prefer Amber. I know a 5yo Amber, she's lovely and the name really suits her.

Skyler - I am not really familiar with the name and if someone told me their baby was called this, I wouldn't know the sex and would probably say "pardon?".

Amber. Skyler sounds made up by nutso American Child Pageant Moms.

seeker Thu 23-Dec-10 17:06:56

Isn't Skyler a boy's name?

coldtits Thu 23-Dec-10 17:08:19

Although apparently it IS a real name, brought to America by Danish settlers in the 17th century.

It does, however, mean "Fugitive"

I know a female Skyler - not keen on it tbh. Amber is the Sharon of the future imo.

RockinRobinBird Thu 23-Dec-10 17:25:52

Amber. Can't stand Skyler either.

Skyler is the older brother in the Joyce Carol Oates book about - spot on coldtits - the murder of an American Child Ice Skater
there's stuff in there about the name, too, being original, reaching for the sky etc

Amber is the name of my late dog - I really like it! Skyler sounds like a Moondreamer.

toddlerama Thu 23-Dec-10 18:12:04

moondreamers

Amber

Don't like Skyler at all, sorry.

rachel234 Thu 23-Dec-10 18:38:58

How about Skye - I know a lovely 5 year old one?

Chocolocolate Thu 23-Dec-10 19:07:18

Isn't Skyla female & Skyler or Schuyler male?

I like Schuyler for a boy but Amber gets my vote for a girl.

RustyBear Thu 23-Dec-10 19:09:35

Amber (though I am prejudiced- see profile!)

christmasheave Thu 23-Dec-10 19:10:34

Out of the two, Amber.

I like Sky as a name, but Skyler will end up being nicknamed Skiver, I'd bet my ass on it!

BerryinClover Thu 23-Dec-10 20:54:41

Amber is nice, esp if it suits her colouring. Skyler makes me think of Skylon (some kind of tower they had at Festival of Britain, I think).

seeker Fri 24-Dec-10 08:46:07

Skyler is almost a name - it's derived from German or Dutch, I think.

But Skyla is just a random collection of letters that by coincidence is pronouncable.
