I'm a Carla. i've always had a love/hate relationship with the name. I love that's It's not super common, but really don't like the name itself. It'sounds harsh and outdated to me. My sisters name is Keira and I had always wished I had her name instead- lol!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Carla and I am 41 years old, I never knew so many people had my name. My Dad named me and i dont know where he got my name from. May he rest in peace, i will never know.... I have to accept that he just like the name.... Hey to all the Carla's in the world....

01/08/2024 10:52:34

love that It's common enough for people to associate (CAR + LA), yet unique that not EVERY 1 in 5 girls share my name unlike, Jennifer or Christine perhaps. and shame on you for thinking ashleigh & sydney are common names. where the heck do you live❤️!

12/12/2023 14:40:18

I like that I dont run into many people with the'same name. I was born in the 80s when everyone else was naming their babies Jessica, Jennifer, Lauren or Sarah. My only issue with the name 'Carla' is that its sooooo dated. It'screams 1972s.

11/30/2023 01:26:08

I have met a couple Carla's in my life, one even lives in my town. She's 30 years older then me. Once in a while we run into eachother. "Hi Carla." "Hi Carla" LOL

09/02/2023 19:40:20

My name is Carla and I really like it! Sometimes I get mistaken for the name Clara ! I was originally going to be named Kaitlyn which I love just as much! I have grown up to know 0 Carla❤️s except for myself. My mother named me. My nicknames are monkey and bear :) I love those animals I sometimes feel lonely living 10 years on this planet and still not knowing another Carla. A friend with the closest name to me is Kayla! I enjoy my name tho! It's unique like all names.

I am 36 yrs old and have never liked my name. It is not feminine enough. The only thing I like about it is that I am named after my dad, Carl.

06/03/2023 21:50:28

A few people mistake me for Darla or Carol. Some call me Carlita in Spanish. Most Carla's I'meet, spell it with a K. I used to hate my name as a kid, but I'm 50 and proud of being Carla today. Now if I could find it on a keychain or other things, that would be a plus.

05/27/2023 08:48:20

04/03/2023 14:20:22

03/28/2023 12:51:52

I think my name is very fitting with me: strong, independent, takes no BS, smart, but It's also caring and thoughtful. I used to hate it when I was younger but it has been growing on me as I grow older. I'm 27 now and I wouldn't change it. It's not that common anymore and it fits me perfectly.

01/31/2023 09:58:18

I'm 28 and here, in Indonesia, people are more familiar with Clara, instead. So yes, I often got people addressed me as Clara than Carla, but that's when I feel my name is uniquely different. Even so, i've came across few Carla's in my life and I still feel It's a unique name. Like it a lot!

01/02/2023 13:51:48

05/06/2022 17:22:30

I owe my name to my paternal grandfather, Karl Niermann, who did as a German soldier during the'second World War. My parents (in 1995) decided to name me Carla in honour of the great man my grandfather was. I am proud of my name, and think it is beautiful - it makes me feel feminine and strong.

03/29/2022 23:31:30

I am 65 and I have always loved my name. I think It's feminine and its unique without being so unusual. I have always been'the only Carla (except the 1st grade) so in that respect It's stands out. I especially love hearing other people say my name. In the end It's the kind of person you are that makes your name'special and not the other way around.

10/29/2021 05:49:30

Im Carla Long and Im 14 yrs old, i used not to like my name until I seen'there are other girls out there with the'same name as me. I used to think my name was ugly because its not like my friends name Juliet, Lillian, or Lorraine. I now love my name and think its special because im named after my Grandpa, Carl!

08/01/2021 09:52:30

I think its far to masculine and ive always wanted a more feminine pretty name like louise but im used to it now would not recommend through personal experience .
