Comments for JAYLA:

Jayla is not an English name. It's origin is Hebrew and biblical. The correct spelling for the name is Jaala. A "h" can be added at the ending of the name, thus the spelling Jaalah. The name can be found in both Ezra and Nehemiah. According to scripture Jaala was one of the servants of Solomon.

Jayla is definitely not a Hebrew name. Jaala and Jaalah might be Hebrew names but they wouldn't be pronounced like Jayla. Pronounced in Hebrew it wouldn't even sound close to Jayla.

Jayla is made up. A combination of Jay and the popular suffix -la- probably influenced by the name Kayla. It's just a trendy name without a real meaning even though you might say it means the same as Jay."

I think it's ugly and trashy and it sounds like the word "jail".

This is such an cool name! I use this name for a role-playing character I've created, Jayla Starlight, just like my username says. I can't believe this name is actually on this site! Awesome. =D

Jayla is a beautiful name. But I would rather spell it Jaylah, it's so beautiful.

Sounds like "jailer". And no, it is not Biblical. It is made up of two extremely popular sounds.

This name is sweet and simple. I like it. Even though it DOES sound like someone is saying "jailer" slang-ish.

Too close to sounding like, j-lo (Jennifer Lopez' nickname"), "jello" and "jailer". What about Jaylyn or Jayna or Jayda instead?

This name looks so tacky.

A ghetto pronunciation of 'jailer' does rather come to mind. Plus, the name is simply ugly and harsh-sounding, and even worse than the likewise trashy and youthful Kayla.

Jayla Rubinelli was a contestant on America's Next Top Model (fifth season). She finished in fourth place.

I do not agree whatsoever that it sounds too much like "jailer". Who says that word like that? Or that often for that matter? I think this name is very pretty, if said right.

The name Kayla is growing so popular these days. In my opinion, this makes a spectacular alternative or name for a little girl that ages well. It just sounds so pretty and feminine, and, so far, I'm pretty sure you can give a child this name and not necessarily have to worry about her becoming "Jayla M." after she's started kindergarten.

Ok guys my name is Jayla I know it might sound tacky but you know what you're probably just jealous that my name is only 2 syllables unlike those other ghetto names with five. I'm African American and Belizean. You guys have made me feel horrible because of those comments, so I hope your happy with your judgment of the name, I hope you're happy for breaking a 10 year old's heart.

Jaylamonet 4/9/14 Why would these comments "break your heart" if you love your name? If you really did, they shouldn't matter. I wouldn't let something like that get to you.

I like how this name sounds but wouldn't use it. Too trendy for my liking. I don't hate it though, and I much prefer it to Kayla!
