Wylie is a boy's name with multiple origins. Though the name may mean "cunning" in Scottish and "tricky" in Celtic, Wylie finds its roots in more nourishing grounds. Originally a surname, Wylie emerges from the Old English word wilig, meaning "willow," and leah, meaning "woodland" or "clearing," bestowing it with a scenic meaning of a "willow meadow" or "Will's meadow." Wylie is also often attributed to the River Wylye or the many villages of Willey that pepper the British countryside, beautifully connected to its other English meaning of "charming." With an abundant yet effortless name like Wylie, baby is sure to appreciate nature and possibly become quite the charmer.
