Schuyler is my weird and wonderful monster-slayer. Together we have many adventures.
She is so beautiful.
You mean it's not Schoooo-ler? Just kidding. I love her name.
i remember dana posting an announcement of schuyler's birth and providing her email address in case anyone had any questions or things to pass along to the rum-huds. my first question: how do you PRONOUNCE that? hehe :) now it seems pretty obvious...
Thanks. I've been reading your blog for about a year now(and can't wait for your book!) and wasn't sure on how to pronounce Schuyler's name. Adorable photo.Colleen from IL
Heh! Yeah, it's not pronounced quuuuuuuuite the way it looks - what language is that spelling from, anyway? Not that I know where "Skylar" comes from either...
Schuyler is Dutch (thus the Sch- as "k" rather than the German "sh"), it means "scholar". Skylar and Skyler are modern variations. It was once primarily a boy's name, but I think now it's more popular with girls, "popular" obviously being a subjective term.Sissy Spacek and Michael J. Fox both have daughters named Schuyler.Here's a weird coincidence...
omg- I've been reading your blog since the Darn Tootin days and I've still been thinking it's Shy-ler. D'OH! Thanks for the correction.
I knew how to pronouce it, but never knew it meant "scholar." Awesome.When I click on your [u]weird coincidence[/u] link, I get invited to start my own blog. I'm thinking that's probably not where that was supposed to take me...?
Duh. Here's the weird coincidence.
Thanks for letting me know. I've been reading about your wonderful daughter for some time and I didn't know that was the pronunciation.
adorable ! and thanks for clarifying.. in my mind I was not pronouncing it right.. I was thinking like Shy-ler. oops!
