Names Ending in -ler

Image via Wikipedia

I've been watching some episodes of the TV show Friends lately, and while Rachel is a personal favorite name of mine, the character name that sticks out the most to me is Chandler. There was even an episode about his name, when Phoebe was trying to decide on a name for her unborn nephew and decided to choose between the names Joey and Chandler. After Joey criticized the name Chandler, Chandler agreed that it is a "stupid" name and said he was going to change it. All of this was an effort to get Phoebe to choose his name, which she did. Her nephew was then born a girl, but the baby girl was still named Chandler, much to the adult male Chandler's chagrin. So, how many "little baby girl Chandler"s were born in 2012?

This train of thought led me to develop the following list... the -lers!

Adler 18 153

Names ending in -ler are not a hugely popular bunch, save Kyler, Skyler and Tyler. But there are some great finds in the list, such as Adler, Keller, Kinsler, and Sadler. I also have to say that I prefer the original Schuyler spelling to Skyler.

What is your favorite name ending in -ler?
