My daughter's name is Kaila. It means several things in different languages. In North American Indian it means "wolf". In Hawaiian it means "Style" and a variant is "Peaceful sea". In India it means "bananas", and it also has a Jewish history; it means "Grey-eyed".

UMMMMMMM my name is Kaila and I really wish people would call me the right name because everyone wants to say it like "Kayla". IT'S KY-LAH. For the person who said my name means bananas, no, it means ocean song in Hawaiian. Please get your info right and not off Wikipedia. ANYWAYS, I'm off.

My daughter's name is Kaila also. I came up with the name "Kaila" after putting certain letters and sounds together, ones that I like. I have decided after 7 years to see what meanings in different languages I can find. I thought that it was a pretty, not plain, also spritual but strong name to me. One meaning I did find was Kaila means "to shout" in Figian language. It's amazing to find other persons with this name.

The name Kaila is a name of passion and strength. It is pronounced K-I-Laa and should not be pronounced any other way. It is a variation of the name Kayleigh.

I prefer this spelling to the usual 'Kayla'. To me, this a nice, refreshing way to spell the extremely popular name many people have come to hate.

My name is Kaila and all my teachers pronounce it "kyla" instead of "kayla" and it gets really annoying after a while. I don't mind the name. I would have liked a longer name better :] but Kaila is okay.

I've heard Kaila as an Indian (from India, not Native American) surname.

If it is Yiddish the pronunciation would be kyla, the same if it's Indian.

This is pronounced key-lah, like Kayla. The second letter is a tsvey yudn, not a pasekh tsvey yudn.
