Personal Impression
I am Ila Drucilla! I was given this name in 1971. I have only come across 5 Ila's in my life that were older than me. I did come across a 3 year old about 8 months ago. I thought this name was going extinct. I had a hard time in school being called all sorts of names. I think different names are more accepted now than in 1971.

It is pronounced eye-la. My daughter has spent most of her life correcting the pronunciation of her name. At her grandmother's request, Illa, we spelled it this way to try to avoid the "ill-a" that she was often called. The Inner Hebrides island, Islay, is pronounced the same way.

My name is Ila. When I was younger I wished I had a name like "Debbie" or "Linda", so as to fit in better. Now, at the age of 54, I think it is kind of cool that I have yet to meet another living person with the same name as me.

My husband and I named our daughter Ila Joy. She is named after both of her great grandmothers. I think it is a very beutiful name, there are enough Macenzie, Taylor, and Rileys in the world. I think it would be nice if we got back to the old days of naming. Look at how much class women had back then, wouldn't it be nice to bring that back. Tracy, mother of Richard and Ila
