Taylor

Taylor is right at the cusp of a changing of the tides. What used to be more often used as a boys’ name (à la Taylor Lautner), is now a girls’ name favorite (thank you, Taylor Swift.) As a result, parents are gravitating towards the similar-sounding Tyler instead. Taylor is an occupational name referring to, you guessed it, a tailor.
