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".

Jayla is a feminine variant of the name Jay, which may derive from Hebrew and mean 'God will protect', or from the Sanskrit meaning 'victory' or from the Greek meaning 'to heal'.

I had no idea that the name "Jayla" had become trendy. I see that a few people have tried to find out what it means, and there are a few who have made it as a variant from other languages, including Hebrew, Sanskrit and Arabic, or a female variant of Jay. Our Jay is actually the pronunciation of her mother's initials...JLA. It was preferred to "junior".
