LEILA is Arabic for 'dark' and 'born of night.'
There are FOUR ways of spelling the name:
LAYLA, LAILA, LEILA, LEYLA.
There is a woman politician called Layla Zana.
It is of Arabic origin, and the meaning of Leila is "night beauty". Used by authors for the names of exotic female characters in the early 19th century.
My maiden name is Lea Mau you can imagine how my name was slaughtered when I grew up. LA Meow was very commonly pronounced. Now if Lea Mau doesn't sound Polynesian what could? I am of German decent however. I have always wondered what Lea or even Mau might mean in Hawaiian? Most my Hawaiian friends call me Lay ah instead of Lee ah. I'm Hawaiian at heart and would love to find the meaning if any? Respectfully Lea Mau Cook
