The mum asked whether she could use the name Sky or Skylar for a boy and people had strong opinions.

Another said: “I think people call their dogs of either sex Sky.”

A third said: “You can, but you shouldn’t.”

And another said: “Why not I guess, but I wouldn’t.”

And another person said: “Nopety nope nope nope. Poor kid.”

One suggested an alternative: “I wouldn’t want to call a child/pet Skyler.

“Call a boy Sky? Theoretically, but why would you so that to him. Guy sounds similar and is nice.”

Another person pointed out the Abba connection, saying: “Sky(e) is the name of Sophie’s boyfriend in Mama Mia.

“Isn’t their a female Skye in Paw Patrol?

“I think I wouldn’t use it for a boy for this reason because for little kids this is probably the only place they hear the name. You don’t really hear it for boys.”
