I'm brazilian, my name is Camila and here in my country that name is pretty common. Everyone that I know says "Camila" is a beautiful name. There is even a song from a rock band(Nenhum de nıs) called "Camila, Camila". In elementary school there was always another Camila in my class, during high school too. Now I'm in college and guess what....there is another Camila studying with me.

01/03/2024 08:19:28

I dislike this English teacher that I'd, say it is pronounce as Ka-me-la. When I correct her yet she'say I'm a English teacher, so I know better than you❤️! Its my name, given by my parents, why cant I correct her❤️

10/12/2023 09:31:16

My full name is actually Maria-Camila bur no one calls me the full thing and stick to Maria. I personally don't like the'sound of Maria all on its own so I just tell people to call me Camila. Camila, pronounced Kuh-MEE-llah get it right people! It's not Cammela, Camilia or Camille-a accent on the mi part. Ca-MI-la lmfao how hard it it to spell or even pronounce❤️❤️ Regardless of the fact that 60% of the time i am called by the wrong name I love it! It's so unique, girly and pretty. Camila is an awesome name and I'm glad It's mine. CAMILA IS THE BEST NAME EVER! RIGHT CAMILAs❤️❤️

09/23/2023 15:34:38

Ugh. Hate my name. Always get the "e" on the end too. And when I spell it, they even question me, "no e on the end❤️" Umm, no! If there was, I would have told you! Don't know why my mom had to be so creative w/ the'spelling. Would like it more if it was Lesley. I think it looks prettier. I feel like Lesli is just boring and not girly enough. Would like any other name rather than this!

07/15/2023 13:21:26

In 2009 I named my younger daughter Camila Grace, after Camila O'Gorman (foreign fI'm, 1996). It'seems to have soared in popularity in the last few years, at least here in MI'mi. I attribute this to a Spanish-language soap opera which was all the rage down here. As to the pronunciation, I pronounce it Cuh-mih-luh. Just like Camilla (which is Italian). In Italy and in Spain, they are both pronounced Ca-mee-la, but I prefer the Anglicized pronunciation. If I lived anywhere else, other than MI'mi, the name would probably be uncommon.

07/09/2023 18:56:08

06/02/2023 10:52:06

The name is pretty but only if you say it Ay-dree-ah-na. If you say it Ah-dree-ah-na It'sounds boring and It'sounds like your saying Odd-Riana. I use my brain, the Queen has spoken, only cute if it is said Ay-dree-ah-na.

05/29/2023 04:35:42

My name is Kamila. A lot of people think It's Kamilia, but It's not. I have a polish name.

12/01/2022 22:44:54

I love my name. It is of Spanish origin and it is beautiful. However, people do not know how to pronounce my name. It is Camila...It'sounds like Cam-ee-la (it rhymes with tequila). People say Camilia or camilla (sounds like camel-la and rhymes with Pamela) which is wrong since It's a Spanish name. But after I explain it most people are able to pronounce it right and I get a lot of compliments. I like that my name is not very common and I think it is a beautiful, feminine, name (when pronounce right!).

11/16/2022 13:19:48

I love my name! Every one I'meet usually will say "oh, what a beautiful name!" I don't really care that people misspell it (usually Camilla or Camillia) because in my opinion it is the best name in the world!

10/20/2022 01:50:36

Thank you to the other camila, who so kindly corrected the meaning. It can be from Spanish origin, french origin (when spelled with 2 "l"'s) and italian origin. But the name really does mean "closer to God" or " the one who is present in God". In the end, its just a great name for any baby girl!

10/16/2022 12:54:34
