I was born 1999 and my name is Lela, pronounced Leela, not Leyla or Lila. And although in some middle eastern cultures it has a meaning of dark nights I am anything but. I have ashy brown hair, brown eyes, and extremely fair skin. I was named after an old family friend. Which makes sense since my name was hugely popular in the 1920's. I love my name'so much that if it weren't creepy I would definitely name my daughter Lela.

People always say my name, like Lyla or something. But It's said the way It's spelled. L-E-L-A, Lela. But yeah, I love my name. And It's not that common so that's one of the major reasons I love it ^_^

My name I Leela. i've got picked on for it when I was a kid but I love my name. From every thing i've looked up it means: dark as night, born at night, and mysterious. I was born earlie morning, fair skin, blond hair, light green eyes, bubbley and always friendly... So... Not really the'same. But the name Leela sounds happy. I love it!
