Comments and insights on the name Lyle: | Edit

There was a girl at school named Lyle. I thought that was sorta weird. But girls get named Kyle, too . . .

My grandmother's name was Lila, which I think is very pretty. People sometimes called her Lyle for short. Lila is a lovely name, but Lyle is a little too masculine, just my opinion.
