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!

I seriously think it is rude of you people to diss the name Jayla. My name is Jayla and no one at all has ever said any of this stuff. Sure people I once knew had said my name in the ghetto way, but it sounds nothing like jailer when they say the name properly. My name and a lot of other people who have this name have a unique name. It might be a name that is like Kayla, but it isn't the same. Sure it's hard to separate a Kayla and a Jayla, (I know this, my family tries to call me, but calls Kayla or the other way around) but these names are different. Also stop saying harsh comments on my name. It's just rude. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if any one were to diss your name when you love it. Also Jaylamonet don't be broken heart-ed from people's comments on your name. It surely isn't worth it. Also thank you Jaylastarlight. You're awesome!

I love this name! It's my daughters name, as soon as found out I was pregnant I was set on it. I think it's so rude that people are saying rude comments about it. It's beautiful and cute.
-- Jaylas_mommy  7/31/2014
I highly dislike this name. It sounds tacky. There's no significance behind it.
-- nicolemichaela  12/31/2014
My daughter's name is Jayla also and I very much so love the name. We all have personal preferences when it comes to naming our children and so did our parents when they named us. We learn to live with it and leave it and in the end, don't care what others think. I felt that the name was simple and beautiful and it describes my daughter perfectly..."one who is special". Opinions are opinions, and they're just that.

I named my daughter Jayla, after her father. I've ALWAYS got good feedback on her name. We call her Jay or JJ (middle name starts with a J too). It's pretty, simple and unique! We love it, she loves it too. Great name for a little girl!
-- Namelover86  2/21/2015
I think your comment is ignorant. My daughter's name is Jayla and it sounds no where near like jail any time I say it or hear it. It sounds beautiful to me. I actually got the name off America's Next Top Model, two weeks before she was born. I had no idea what I was gonna name her prior. Her father and I heard the name at the same time and agreed it was the most beautiful name we had ever heard and when she was born she was just as beautiful as her name. Born with the most beautiful blond hair and the most beautiful blue eyes in which neither her father nor I have.

My name is Jayla and I love it. I don't see how Jayla sounds like jailer. When you pronounce the name you don't say it in a "ghetto" voice that make it sound like jailer, but you say it like Jay the add the suffix la. Most of y'all are saying that it sounds like Jayla, but I think y'all are looking at more of the spelling. Y'all do have a right to say what you want about the name, but I don't think y'all have to be rude and say it's an ugly name and other stuff like that. If you don't like the name then just put that you don't like the name and don't be rude and add all the extra stuff.

I think this name sounds lovely, and it could easily be a feminine form of 'James' or 'Jason' or a variation of 'Jane' or even 'Jade'. People insisting it's "made up" have apparently somehow missed that, ultimately, EVERY NAME is made up at one point or another.
