Similar to the Saxon name, Aelle. There were several kings of this name during their dark ages' push into Britain.

Aella is such an interesting name! I really like it and I think it's an easy way to avoid the name Ella with out completely excluding it. Ella is becoming more popular as time goes on, so Aella is a great alternate form so to speak. Also it has a really uncommon meaning. I have never seen a name that meant "Whirlwind", which is how parenthood feels sometimes! hahahA! How ironic. I hope this name gets the credit it deserves one day! =)

What a nice name!

Pronounced AY-la (AY as in bay), like Kayla without the K. I like this a lot more then either Kayla or Ella. Variants include Ael (AYL, masculine), Aelle (AY-el), Aellia (AY-lee-ah), Aelliana (AY-lee-ah-na). Personally, I dislike Aellia and Aelliana because they sound a lot like "Alien."

This name is soo cute! It is so different, but has the look and sound of a beautiful classic name! I think the meaning is cute too!

In Greek mythology Heracles slew the Amazon Aella who was known for wielding a double-axe.

Also of Irish origin, meaning 'from Ireland'.

I whole-heartedly doubt that Aella had any Irish origins, much less "from Ireland", which, by the way, is "na hÉireann". There is no similarity between Aella and na hÉireann, or even the Anglo-Irish name Erin. Why do people make up Irish origins for every name? It's something I just can't understand. If you don't speak the language, don't be making up meanings.

It is a pretty name, but a little too out-there for me. I would be too worried my child would be teased if I named my child this.

This name is actually quite beautiful, but I think people will have problems pronouncing it. ): I love it pronounced ay la.

This name has the coolest meaning! Unfortunately, I think some may have trouble pronouncing it if they didn't know how to correctly say it.

I have also seen it used as a surname.

I absolutely love the name Aella! My favorite name of all time, sweet and soft but with such strength. A beautiful choice for my hopefully future daughter.

Interesting name... Aella does have a certain appeal and it's a nice alternative to the overused Ella!

A pretty name with an interesting meaning. It has a nice sound to it, and is better than plain Ella (which is quite nice too) in my opinion. Will consider using this name for later.

I found it very interesting that people can comment on the names they like, mostly this one, so I'd like to share my thoughts as well. My name is Aella and I am Greek. I can't tell you how blessed I feel that my parents decided to give me such a unique name. Every time I meet new people I know they're going to ask me the origin of the name and of course most of them will ask me to say it a couple of times so that they'll understand the pronunciation. There are also people who can't remember it or can't pronounce it very well so I'm used to having a lot of nicknames. But I must say, they love it every single time. I love people's reactions, their questions, their comments. I love that no one forgets it (even if sometimes I wish they would). I also love the power of its meaning and it never gets tiring to explain it. I love the fact that no one else has the same name, it makes me feel rare and unique.
I hope people will start giving their children the opportunity to feel special just by giving them a uncommon and wonderful name like this one.

Definitely a nice, refreshing alternative to Ella.
