This is gorgeous, yet simple, and I appreciate that in a name. I will encourage this over "Kayla" any day of the week.

It's cool that there's a forum for this. There are so many interesting comments! I gotta say I love how people have really made an effort to distinguish the pronunciation. I love when people say my name correctly! Even when they don't, I don't mind too much unless they say it like "Carla" mainly because it sounds like Caula like cauliflower, which sounds strange. Also my name name is like a combination listed above but backwards, it's Calla Marie ^_^ I'm very happy with my name, it was my great grandmother's before me and it feels nice that I can pass the name down.

I never realized there were so many people named Calla! I've always kind of disliked my name because I thought it was odd and you'd never hear it around such a small community where I live. Now that I've seen and been told that my name is beautiful, I feel much better about it. As someone said in an earlier comment, it would be very sad to see the name Calla grow popular and overused, much like Sarah, Chloe, Ashley, etc... I have nothing against those names, it's just many names aren't even original anymore...

This is my name and I love it. I get compliments all the time. And no one has ever called me Carla, lol. It's not even pronounced like Carla. It's like Cal-ifornia with an A at the end. That's the only way people who haven't heard of the flower get it right.

Calla Tor is the main character of Andrea Cremer's Nightshade series. She is one of the Guardians, which are people who can shift into wolves.

Nice name, but don't use it if your last name is Han/hann (:

My name is Calla and it has treated me very well for the last 30 years. I love that it's unique and everyone can always distinguish that it's me without the use of my last name. I've always gotten compliments on my name and everyone has always said it's very fitting of my look and personality. I've thanked my mother many times for choosing such a beautiful and different name. (That being said, I'll be sad if it becomes popular and everyone names their babies Calla!)

The name Calla was given to 120 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I think it's very pretty when pronounced CAL-a, and much more mature sounding and unique than Callie.

Beautiful flower, but yet another name "roont" for me by Stephen King.
XICooper  6/25/2012
I find the name very elegant, maybe a bit on the soft side but with a vibe similar to Sarah, Hanna, Ella, Lilah. It's very underused.

I prefer the variation Cala, and I think an extremely beautiful combination is Cala Rose.

This name makes me think of a girl in 6th grade. She is goth and wears WAY too much makeup. Also reminds me of a cowboy, though I don't know why...

I can't believe people actually use Calla as a real name. As a nickname, sure, it's pretty, but as a legal name - ew.

Too bad this sounds like the word 'callous.'

This name is pretty and quite interesting. It would make a great alternative to Kayla.
bananarama  8/20/2010
I KNOW A CALLA! She's awesome, but when people first say her name, they say Kayla instead. Calla is such a unique and beautiful name.

Lithe, aesthetic, yet modern-sounding.

Pronounced KAH-lah.
MaggieSimpson  12/26/2009
Calla is one of the most feminine and beautiful names for a girl. It's amazingly delicate and flowery.
XxproudrulerxX  11/28/2009
In Spanish, calla (pronounced KEYE-ah) means "street".
Athena Nike  9/1/2009
I vaguely remember reading that calla lilies are supposed to symbolise female genitalia. Yet another reason not to use this unattractive name.
LakeGirl  8/10/2009
Sounds like "callous".

Man, at first I didn't even know this name existed. I was just sitting in the middle of geometry one day last year, and the name Calla Brady, popped up. So I thought when I looked it up on here maybe it was a cognate of Callie, and I was excited to find that it really did exist. Love the flowery meaning, too.
a_lovers_charm  11/3/2008
Oh my. One of the most beautiful names I've ever heard. Almost too perfect for me to imagine on a person (I've never met anyone named this).
padfoot443  7/12/2008
Calla is a great name. It's short and simple, but not nickname-y, and pretty, but not too girly. It sounds good on girls and women alike.
slight night shiver  4/20/2008
Actually, the Calla Lily is neither a true lily, nor a calla. The flower comes from the Zantedeschia genus in the Araceae family.

Just seems like a variant of Carla to me, as it sounds exactly the same, and so loses its glamour somewhat.
AnnoLuce  12/29/2007
Calla and Carla are not pronounced the same at all.

Calla is CAL-lah (not CAH-lah) and Carla is CAR-lah.

I watched "Tarzan" the other day and his mother's name was Kala. I like how it sounded so I decided to invent "Calah". I like the name Cayla with a "C" and I just like "Calah" -- they way it is spelled and sounds better! I absolutely adore it. And then I clicked on this name and the Greek meaning is "kallos" (I think) meaning beauty, and I like it even MORE now!
Chloever33  8/17/2007
My full name is Calista, and I go by Calla. I adore it. :D
Calla Rose  7/6/2007
I think it's a great name but it can be better with other names such as Rachel-Calla, Marie-Calla, Calla-Alice, Calla-Narina plus a whole lot more, just be creative.
Koolgal  3/25/2007
I love Calla. Simple, sweet, & not overly popular. My only concern would be is that for some, it's a bit hard to say.
Kitten  11/22/2006
This name sounds so romantic to me, makes me think of Calla lillies (My favorite). Calla seems like someone so beautiful you would be afraid to touch her.

"Calla" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).
