Layla in Arabic means, the Ecstasy of wine, and a moonless night. It also means a girl born at night.

Means "Dark beauty". Eric Clapton wrote and sang a song called 'Layla'. Stunning name.

Layla actually means "dark night" in Arabic.

The meaning of the name is NOT, in fact, "night". This is a common mistake, if you inspect the spelling in Arabic you can see they're two different words. The name LAYLA means the light, giddy feeling when one has the first drink of the night, that is, not drunk but on the way to being drunk, the beginning of the intoxication. I hope I have translated it clearly.

I'm not sure but I think it means Love in Urdu.
