schuyler B

old dutch

This name derives from a Dutch surname, from the word "Schuyler", meaning "scholar, student", brought to America by seventeenth century Dutch immigrants. The surname Schuyler was originally introduced in North America by 17th century settlers arriving in New York. It became a given name in honor of prominent members of the New York family, such as Philip Schuyler, and so became the given name of Schuyler Colfax, the 17th vice president of the United States.
