I love my name, Keyla, I do get how people don't know how to pronounce it, but I don't mind letting them know how. When I do, they like that It's spelled differently, so do I. It'sets me apart from a lot of other girls because my name is not common. Keyla is also Hebrew in origin and it means "the bride" or "crown of laurels" which is the'symbol of the poet, which I am. It's funny that my name means the'symbol of what I am. I love it. Also if you didn't know, Keyla is in the King James version of the Bible. My mother is a preacher and that's where she found it. Keyla, is such a pretty name. I don't know many grown up Keylas, not spelled that way anyway, I'm glad now I know you guys are here too. WoooHOOO!!!

My name is Keyla. My great-great-grandmother was sent to a convent in Spain for her education after her mother died and her dearest friend was named Keyla. Keyla is now a family name and every generation has at least one daughter named Keyla. We pronounce it as "Kay-la" because in Spanish "ey" makes the "ay" sound. My name is always mispronounced in the US, but never in Spain, Cuba or Venezuela, where other members of my family live.

My name is Keyla. I am probably one of the oldest. I am from Venezuela and two more previous members in my family where named Keyla. I love my name.... I know several Keylas in Venezuela, that were named after me and I wish they have enjoyed their name, as much as I have. Keyla to me is like music,like freedom, like beauty....My best whishes and good look for all the Keylas. In the USA they call me kila, but I always insist in the right pronunciation and they are receptive about it. When I say my name they tell me. What a beautiful name! I think that if you like your name,it is an open door for communication and probably makes you feel special. I always felt special and still do.

My name is Keyla and I really like it. Alot of people said that ia a beautiful name and that is difficult to find someone with that name well the'spelling.
