Skye is the name of one of the largest island of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The etymology of the name is obscure; it may be derived from Old Norse ský (cloud) and ey (island) meaning “cloud island”. It’s also been linked to Scottish Gaelic sgitheanach meaning “winged”.

Skye can also be used as a variant spelling of Sky, referring to the upper atmosphere above the earth, as well as the heavens. Skye is also a surname, a locational name.

Skye could also be used as a nickname for Skyler, a phonetic spelling of Schuyler, a Dutch surname meaning “scholar”.
