We're planning on naming or new addition (due May 1st and a boy) Oaklee. We've looked at all the'spellings and this one seems to be more transferable to either Oak or Lee if he wants. We fell in love with this name, and so have our friends. Our parents on the other hand, and the older people in our life have a different opinion. I'm sure they'll grow into it.

My name is Leila. Pronounced "lee eye la". I am 51 years old and have never met another person who pronounced it this way, although every so often I will meet people who know someone who does pronounce it the way my name is pronounced. I enjoy having an unusual name although in Jr Hi one of my teacher's could never'say my name and ended up calling me "Hey you."

My name is Leila (pronounced "Lay'la"). Spelling it is difficult for people from time to time, but it has sparked inter'sting conversation! I'm proud that my parents gave me a name that reflects part of my heritage.

I spell it Leila, pronounced Lay-la. It's not common, so I don't meet many people with this name. It's Arabic meaning "night" or "daughter of the night". As an adult I usually get a positive reaction to my name. I like it. If my daughter to have a baby girl, she would name her Leila.

As a 1982s Leila (LEE-lah), I'm frequently asked if I was named for "that Eric Clapton song." I wasn't...I was born four years before he re-released the Derrick & the Dominoes song. ;) I have had some, ok a lot, of issue with mispronunciation/spelling of my name. At this stage, I just say, "No, It's not Layla...It's Leila, rhymes with Sheila." i've also had people tell me I should change my name to something more suitable to my looks. As a red-headed, freckle-faced Irish is a bit odd to have an Arabic name meaning dark (haired) beauty. I love my name either way. I was definitely unique amongst my classmates growing up, and still am amongst my peers today. Don't hesitate to use this beautiful and mellifluous name unless You're unable to handle having to correct people constantly. I have never met another Leila who pronounces their name Lee-lah in person. i've met a few Lelas and one Leela.

Very seldom, but here is an inter'sting thought. Edmund means "protector" "Keeper of the keys." I have always looked after and protected people who were deemed as "different" amomg our peers. Later, I was in a position where I was and assist train special ed students. Often'times I felt that they were giving me a far greater gift, than I was afording them. Also, I worked in schools for thirty years as a Head Custodian. The kepper of the keys and protector of the'school and those who came to teach, learn and enjoy a clean and sanitory enviroment. I'most especially enjoy my roll as Father.
