The meaning of the name Tyler is ‘tile maker’.
Tyler comes from the transferred use of an English surname originating as an occupation describing a ‘tile-maker’. In Olde English, ‘tigele’ was the all-encompassing word for ‘tile, brick, roofing shingle’, borrowed from the Latin ‘tegula’ (covering).
A tile-maker would have been considered an important and respectable trade in medieval England and he most likely made a good living.
Tyler is one of the oldest recorded surnames in England first appearing in the late 12th century and rendered as ‘le Tuiler’, apparently one of the earliest Knights Templar.
Another early surname bearer was Walter ‘Wat’ Tyler, the leader of the English Peasants Revolt of 1381.
Using surnames as first names has been a long-time practice in the naming styles of America, especially for boys.
Tyler was first popularized as a given name among Americans in the 19th century, largely influenced by our 10th President, John Tyler (1790-1862).
