this name was my grandmothers name and she was very German. I think this name should be listed as a German name as well.

Lela is a pretty name. When I see this spelling I pronounce it LEE-la.

This was my Great Grandmother's name. She was part Scottish and part German. I know it was her mother that named her and she was 100% German. I also think this name should be shown as a German name.

I can't tell if this is supposed to be LAY-luh or LEE-luh. If it's the former, it's way to ambiguous; and if it's the latter, it's... pettish. Like Lulu.

Much prefer Leila.
