lyle M

latin
SăLUM > *ISULA > (TERRA INSULA) INSULA > L'ISLE

The name Lyle is derived from “de l’isle”, a Norman French word meaning “islander”. In turn this name derives from the Latin "sălum > *isula > (terra insula) insula", meaning "island, deep sea, (poetic) rough sea, (of the river) wave, current." Probably the Latin word "sălum" is derived from the Greek "sálos (σάλοσ)", meaning "the movement of the sea." The name was recorded in England after the famous Norman conquest of 1066.
