In Scotland there is an Isle of Skye. However, I got this name out of an old baby book and it has a meaning for a child (boy or girl). It means "sheltering". It was a popular name in the southern United States around the Civil War era. More boys than girls were named Skye during that period, but it was used for both.

I got "Skye" from an old children's puppet show from the 90s called, "The Puzzle Place." Skye was the name of my favorite character, a Native American boy. Ever since then, I have been completely in love with it. I hate that it has found rising popularity as a girl's name, however. It may ruin my childhood dream of naming my son Skye.
