"I love my name I even have a tattoo of it, lol. People spell my name wrong all the time even if I have only ever had contact with them over email and never met them, or sometimes generally really posh people like to moan about how my name is spelled and they end up just coming across so arrogant or annoying because it?s always unprovoked but it?s never been a big problem. Also I believe if my name wasn?t Myles my life would have been totally different, people treat you a certain way and it?s usually very well!. Nicknames I had from my brother Mills, others say Meals, Myleo, Giles and obviously Mylo." Feb. 18, 2018:
"Hello, my name is Myles before i thought i was the only one with this name when i was little.Im just saying hello to all the other myles' and i fell ya about the misspelling" Feb. 24, 2016:
"My name is Myles. It's funny because my father said the name was chosen by my mother for saying 'my love'. He also used to pronounce it mi-lez until I told him that pronouncing it that way makes it mean soldier in latin. I also got a lot of nicknames from Myles. Mi-les, My les, Mouse Ma?ce. It's a great name. To us, fellow Myleses!" Apr. 18, 2015:
"This is a great name I think so because I have a huge crush on a guy named Myles that goes to school he's so cute" Mar. 17, 2015:
"I decided to replace the s with a z for Mylez, the name of our son which has been pronounced wrong more then once I find myself putting (Miles) next to his name." Dec. 22, 2014:
"My mom named me Myles after she watched sesame street and seen a little black boy named Miles on there, she liked the name, and thought adding a "Y" would be more unique. I personally like the name too! :) . I've only met 1 other Myles in my life, he is a taxi driver. My past & present nicknames - Myno, mylie-mo, smyles, mylz. People sometimes sing songs to me like, "I can walk a hundred miles", & "I can go for miles and miles and miles". Stay strong all those Myles' out there, like I know you will.." Nov. 5, 2013:
"My name is myles!
it's awesome! I got a few nicknames in like lol gradeschool, but it's probably the most amazing thing my parents ever gave me.
everyone loves it, it's unique and I feel if I was named anything else, my life would be completely different!
A lot of people spell my name with an "i" and it's a slight pet peeve, but is so amazing when someone spells it with a "y" without asking me!
I LOVE MY FRIGGIN NAME!
I have a few very close chick friends who always say "i'd go miles for myles" :D" Feb. 15, 2011:
"I love the name, I'm thinking of naming my baby boy myles even tho it's not very popular in Scotland where I live" Jul. 14, 2010:
"We named our son Myles in 1987. I like the slightly different spelling. The spelling is something of a problem as most people presume "Miles"; even relatives.... Nicknames have never been a problem. Milo, Smiles, and melo aren't bad or particularly hurtful compared to derivatives of my own name, Patrick. The meanings of strength and soldier are very solid for Myles as well." Jan. 1, 2010:
"My friend is thinking she'll name her son Myles...I happen to like the name and if she does use it his middle name will be Wesley" Sep. 17, 2009:
"I named my son "Myles" and I think it's a very strong masucline professional name and it suits him perfectly!" Sep. 15, 2009:
"My names myles its a col name i think the only bad thing its one of the few names for bth boys and girls some people make fun cause its original. there are like 6 micheals in my class like 12 matts only 1 myles." Jul. 1, 2009:
"yeah my names Myles and i love my name its very different and i like my nickname Milsi... the "y" doesn't really matter to me it's still a good name and my girls like so 'im in a win ,win situation" May. 30, 2009:
"I love this name... I named my son Myles with a y so he would be different. He is absolutely perfect in everyway right down to the baby blue eyes and button nose. His smile is captivating- everyone calls him smyles for miles... haha. The only down side is nothing is preprinted (which is also a good thing) and everything is special order/custom. I didn't want a run of the mill name- for my girl either- I spelled her name Reagen instead of the Reagan." Mar. 31, 2009:
"such a cool name. What's even cooler is a guy name Myles Black. (haha, thats in going to be in my book)" Mar. 12, 2009:
