Ayla is a wonderful name, with possible meanings of a strong tree (terabinth or oak) or a gazelle (from the Hebrew Ayelet or Ayala). Too many people are stuck on the popularity of names, instead of just picking a beautiful name to go with their beautiful daughters.

11/18/2022 10:00:04 AM

I always wanted to name my future child Ayla. I pronounce it as Eila as well. didn't think it be such a popular name, I always though it was unique.

11/18/2022 2:21:36 AM

I like the name too....I am thinking for a girl Ayla Lee.

11/15/2022 10:20:30 PM

I love reading how all the other aylas are having to deal with the'same things I deal with daily. I also love reading how people say It's like kayla without the k. everytime I do that I ended getting called kayla because they seem to think that my mom would name me kayla and spell it ayla to be "unique". i swear, people are so dumb. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl 6 months ago and named her Ainsley. I couldn't give her a normal name when my names so unique. what did all you other aylas name your children?

11/14/2022 12:12:04 AM

My name is Ayla and I love my name even'though most people pronounce it wrong. It is pronounced A-lu and some people have thought it was pronounced Ella, Alayna, and i-lu/Isla. But it is a very unique name and also simple. i've never met someone with my name. My whole name is actually unique and no one can pronounce it. My middle name is Daykota(with a y that is not silent) and people think it is Dakota.

11/7/2022 4:50:54 PM

hI'my name Ayla and i come from a small town in PA and i was the only one with the name ayla until my sisters teacher named her daughter after me. when i tell people my name they always say "oh ive Never heard that before its very pretty" all i can say is thanks and keep it moving

10/21/2022 5:10:30 AM

10/18/2022 7:52:00 PM

I named my daughter Ayla pronounced "eye-la" but we are playing we like prolong the Aaaaayla. I also got it from the novel of Jean Auel. I was told it also means "church".

10/16/2022 6:44:16 AM

I know a girl named Ayla & everyone thinks it is really cute & no one gets her name wrong. She is actually from Turkey but, she lives in the US now. I think It's funny when she gets an A in class & people say "A" for Ayla whoo hoo. Something like that.

9/28/2022 10:53:06 PM

People almost always mispronounce my name. Every new year in school my teache's say Al-ee-ya or Alaya or I-la. The way I say it is like everyone else whose name Ayla. I have never met anyone else whose name is Ayla but I have met a cat whose name is Ayla. I love my name because I live in a small town and so nobody has it, at least that's what It'seems like. I think that having a name no one where you live has is unique and shows how special you are, (except one thing that drives me nuts is that even my best friends spell it wrong) Ayla age 11

9/20/2022 10:37:56 AM

My name is Ayla and people even'teache's say it as Ila which I do not get.

9/17/2022 6:30:54 AM

Same here! I'm only in comprehe'sive school but my name's Ayla and I wouldn't change it for anything. Whenever we have supply teache's they all call me Isla and it really annoys me. BE PROUD OF YOUR NAME AND WHO YOU ARE THOUGH.

9/6/2022 10:25:24 AM

I love my name Ayla! My brother asked my mom if I could be named Ayla because of the movie. Alot of people do pronounce it wrong. I just still can't understand why. Its not even hard. But I always LOVE LOVE correcting them until they get it right. But I always get compliments on how beautiful it the name actually is.

9/5/2022 8:01:22 PM

My name is pronounced A-luh, but my mother'spelled it Aayla instead

8/7/2022 3:20:06 AM

HI'my name is Ayla-Lee but everyon calls me Ayla, I'm 18 and from New Zealand. i've met one other 'Ayla' with the'same birth date as me, and about two othe's. The most common mistake is the'spelling Alya which sounds like the letter 'L' rather than 'A'. Also the pronunciation I-la is often made. I love my name and It's originality, but mostly I love being Cro -Magnon.

7/31/2022 7:26:42 PM

It's a nice name. I'd once thought of naming my daughter that, but It's too early for me to be thinking of that LoL

7/5/2022 1:00:36 PM

I am newly pregnant and have always loved the name Ayla. If I have a girl, I will name her Ayla Jayne. It is such a beautiful name!

5/23/2022 11:58:30 AM

My baby girl is named Ayla. (A Luh) She is 7 1/2 years old. I found it in a baby name book in 2012 when I was searching for an Hebrew girls name that began with "A". The Hebrew meaning is oak tree. I had never heard of Jean Auel's books until after my daughter was born. We love the name, it fits my daughter, she loves her name too. I feel it defines her and is her identity. I thought it was pretty unique but I guess not so much anymore.

4/20/2022 7:49:12 PM

hI'my name is Ayla Pasha and i love my name. The only thing is people allways say it wrong lol. I love my name but ive never met anyone else names Ayla

4/18/2022 1:56:24 AM

My husband is part Turkish, so we opted for the name Ayla and we get so many compliments on the name. We pronounce it the Turkish way, which is I-la or EYE-la. Although she gets a lot of Kayla without the K pronunciation which drives me nuts, but we just correct it. It is a short and sweet name and it just fits our daughter perfectly. Her name is Ayla Kensington which sounds gorgeous

3/12/2022 6:03:00 AM

I named my daughter Ayla after growing up with Jean M. Auel's books. It's a powerful name and carried well by her. I love that It's so rare but still nice to know It's shared and loved by othe's.

3/10/2022 1:47:24 PM

I named my Daughter Ayla (A-la) actually based on an older rpg game named Chrono Trigger. The game represented her as a fighter . from out of the woods (which makes sense with the oak tree hebrew translation) & better yet, a diff hebrew translation as a Goddess My first born & she is 8 . and she will always be my "A" :) & yes for the Aylas that are out there..aren't u being a lil tired of "ohh Ava"..ehh no It's Ayla ! "I-laa" is not a bad pronouncition ..other then u would probably only hear that in Europe.. associated with a techno/dance group (which actually is pretty good :)

3/2/2022 8:09:00 AM

My name is Ayla Marie as well. My dad read the Jean M. Auel books and loved the name. i've never met anyone else with it but I'm finding out It's not as unique as I thought. When I was in school I'maybe had a total of 3 teache's who pronounced it right the first time. But I love my name and the books it came from.

11/15/2021 10:29:24 AM

My name is Ayla, and I remember this one time I'met an Ayla. I have met only one. my family and I were at the mall, and a person was wearing a name tag that'said Ayla so we asked if that was their real name and it was, but I was really bummed because I never wanted to meat another Ayla. It was very funny when I was a child and we had a substitute teacher. If we were taking attendance in the morning and the'sub got the name right on the first try people would start clapping and the'sub would get confused and say "Did I say it right?" I pronounce my name Aaa-luh

11/15/2021 2:15:18 AM

My name is Ayla and personally, I think its a wonderful name. I was looking at a website with personalized e-cards and was looking at the names, and they had zooey, but no Ayla! there was Kayla, Layla, Ava, and Ayesha. Overall, the name is great, but there's not going to be a lot of personalized things coming your way.

9/12/2021 9:17:24 AM

Thanks for all your comments, I searched the name Ayla to see what people think. I'm having a baby girl soon and this only stren'the's what a great name it is!

9/6/2021 11:21:36 PM

Ayla is my middle name, my mom got it from the book made into a movie called The Clan Of The Cavebear. She watched this movie a couple times when she was pregnant with me and It'stuck out in her head. She thought the name was different and unique and she thought I would be that way growing up, kinda the outcast because I was unique. Well she was right lol. I love this name It's so beautiful and different. It goes well with my first name too. I love it. I was planning on naming my daughter Ayla or Jayla which is a combination of my first name and middle name.

8/27/2021 8:59:24 AM

My daughter's name is Ayla Marie and I can't imagine any name more beautiful that would fit her as I'm having a hard time thinking of a boy name for our new baby that is as perfect as he's... :O)
