- Comments and insights on the name Skylar: | Edit
I have always loved my name! I am constantly having people tell me how beautiful my name is
I also love it a lot, I get compliments all the time. I especially loved never getting mixed up with classmates; I hadn't met any others with this name until just recently, but they're all spelled differently (even had a girl a few grades below me who had the same last name only hers was spelled it Skyler!)
My name is Skylar but actually people call my Skylizzle for some reason I love the name Skylizzle.
I really like the name Skylar, there is a big possibility I'll name my daughter that if it's a girl. Usually names that sound this modern aren't really my style this is to me like an "exception name" and it's hard not to love a name that contains the word Sky
- Personal experiences with the name Skylar: | Edit
Most of my close friends shorten my name to Sky, which I don't mind. I have always loved my name and so has everyone else.
My mom spells my nickname Skye but when I was younger I used to get so urked when people called me that but I really don't mind, in fact some old teachers of mine just called me that for fun.
