Kayla is not an old Irish name nor is it a surname so it's not a masculine name. I don't like this spelling though, this is not a form of Kayla.

Ugh. No. There is nothing positive I can say about this name. Nothing, and I'm clearly not the only one. When parents insist on naming their child names that clearly leave people with very negative impressions, I have an even more negative impression of them (if that makes sense) as parents. I assume that the parent is somewhat selfish and they kind of push their child into activities that are more about the parent than the child's interests. Not at all fair to the child, or the parent even, but that's my honest reaction.

McKayla Rose Maroney is an American former artistic gymnast. She was a member of the U.S. women's gymnastics team dubbed the Fierce Five at the 2012 Summer Olympics, where she won a gold medal in the team and an individual silver medal in the vault event. Maroney was also a member of the gold-winning American team at the 2011 World Championships where she won gold medals in the team and vault competitions. She defended her World title and won the gold medal on vault at the 2013 World Championships, becoming the first U.S. female gymnast to defend a World Championships vault title. A photograph of her with a "not impressed" expression, taken after winning silver in the 2012 Olympics, became an Internet meme. She decided in 2016 to no longer compete in gymnastics due to health issues.

The Webb quadruplets, Emily, Grace, Mckayla, and Abigail, were born May 6, 2016, in Montreal Canada. They are getting quite famous online as one of few identical quadruplets throughout the world.

This name reminds me of Mackenzie, a terrible name. This looks nothing like a feminine form of Michael at all. How hard is it to stick with Michaela?
ERK  10/29/2016
Some really horrible comments. Who cares how people spell their name? If everybody was the same it would be a boring world. I called my little baby girl Mckayla and I would hate her to be reading some of these nasty comments. It's a lovely name no matter how it's spelt.
Jen9053  7/25/2016
The only feminine form of Michael I like is Michelle. I hardly like Michaela, and this looks juvenile.
Eileen1209864  6/22/2016
How ugly and tacky. I already can't stand the name "Kayla," and adding "Mc-" in front of it only makes it feel a lot more masculine. Is it that hard to spell Michaela?
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/12/2016
I'm sorry, but this is honestly the worst of the worst. I know plenty of sweet, classy girls with this name or a kre8v variation, but it just sounds and looks so unappealing and unintelligent.
KatieFisCosetteF  4/20/2016
I know I have already commented, but these khree-8-ivv spellings have got to stop. Use Michaela. McKayla, Makayla and other "YouNiik" spellings are trashy.

P.S. If your name is McKayla, Makayla etc, I am not saying you are trash.
Jghazt333  3/27/2016
Awful. This pseudo Celtic spelling must stop. Mc = son of. McKayla = son of Kayla. Please stop making up terrible names!
― Anonymous User  1/10/2016
I don't like this name. I am tired of people taking Michaela, and turning it in to the mhoddhihnnh spellings. I hate Makayla and stuff, but this is the worst. I am tired of "khrhiih8tihvvh" spellings.
Jghazt333  12/30/2015
The way some parents spell "Michaela" as "McKayla". I mean, COME ON! It's a feminine form of Michael, NOT "son of Kayla"! Although, I don't mind all the other spellings so much, it's just McKayla.
Samantha Carter  12/12/2015
My name is Mckayla and my dad calls me Mac. So what, I'm a tomboy and I love my name and there is no one at my school that has the same name as me so it's cool. I don't know anyone that spells it like me and my grandpa's name is Michael so yeah, it goes with the family. So think before you talk about stuff that you don't know about and I'm not trashy because of my name.
Mckayla s  11/14/2015
Well, some people pronounce it "Mikayla" rather than Makayla. Like my daughter McKayla.
KarenM  10/7/2015
Hi my name is McKayla and I did not appreciate some of the comments. I am 13 years old and I am not white trash but I am not a little know it all. I feel unique because a lot of people do not have my same name so umm... yeah. It did hurt to see some of the comments. I just wanted to put that out there so bye and hope you take this and learn that sometimes it is better to think about what you are commenting before you comment something bitchy.
mckaylaa  8/11/2014
These comments are very rude. Opinion is understandable, however it's very childish to compare it to a fast food restaurant. If you don't like the name don't name your child it. These comments are supposed to be used for additional information not rude comments made by ignorant people. T-_-
For your Information its pronounced makayla not Mickayla...
McKayla  2/19/2014
McKayla can also honor a family surname "McKay." Before dismissing the name as spelled incorrectly, consider the myriad of reasons it could be spelled that way. My daughter McKayla's name has thought, tradition, and family history built into it.
KarenM  10/31/2013
All these Michaela variant spellings are growing so popular these days, more common than people might think. I mean, I do like some spellings of some names more than others (for instance, I like Juliet when spelled as Juliette and prefer this name's traditional spelling over all the others) but it's still pronounced the same. I have a name that's spawned many variations too and turn my head when I overhear someone calling someone else with my same name but spelled differently, so the more common the Michaela spellings get the more confusion will arise when you have several in the same place, regardless of how it's spelled for different girls. It's a nice name, but if you want to use it on a daughter, I advise you to use it as a middle name, at least until its popularity has started dying out.

McKayla Rose Maroney (born 1995 in Aliso Viejo, California) is an American gymnast. She is part of Team USA's "Fab Five" that won the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics.
― Anonymous User  8/7/2012
Um, no. It's tacky and overly youthful, plus it's got that Mc "son of" meaning. Just a thought, wouldn't it be hilarious if a woman called Kayla actually named her son McKayla?
Black_X  7/18/2011
Ewww. Please don't. It looks like a Scottish surname. The only variations of this name that I like are Michaela and Micaela, anyways. All the rest are pure white trash.
Chrila96  11/20/2010
Hayley Williams, the lead singer of Paramore, has a little sister named McKayla.
Dawson  11/14/2010
In my opinion, the only thing more ridiculous than using surnames as names is trying to make a name that isn't a surname look like one.
thesnowwhiterose  7/24/2009
I'll have the McKayla and a large Coke and fries, thanks.
Mondays Child  5/16/2009
Wow, this is bad. I generally hate names with "Mc" in them and then a double capitalization, but this is lowest of the low. People have taken a lovely name (Michaela), made it trendy (Mikayla/Makayla), and now turned it into something even trendier. No.
emmiix3  3/16/2009
Wow. I had no idea that you can make a trendy name and make it even trendier.
number1212  8/23/2008
I burst out laughing when I first heard this name. I think McKayla is an even worse misspelling of Michaela than Makayla or Mikayla. It also looks like it means "son of Kayla". McKayla is just plain idiotic.
bananarama  7/25/2008
This isn't pronounced like Michaela, and many people would say that technically, this means 'son of Kayla'. I'd say this is the worst spelling of Michaela I've seen so far, and it will not make your daughter look very smart or classy.
slight night shiver  4/30/2008
A horrible, trendy version of Michaela. Why can't everyone just spell it Michaela instead of having Mikayla, Makayla, McKayla, etc.
moonbaby9307  11/27/2007
This is hilarious. It sounds like a McDonald's special. "I'll have a Big Mckayla!"
― Anonymous User  10/17/2007
Are we really THIS obsessed with Ireland that we need to add a "Mc" in front of EVERYTHING?
arrowhead909  9/28/2007
A dreadful butchering of "Michaela" and a pathetic attempt at a faux-Celtic name. Mc (a shortened from of the Gaelic word "mac", meaning "son"/"son of") dismisses this name immediately for females, and "Kayla", although derived from the Gaelic word "caol" (which means "thin"), is not a true Celtic name. It looks terrible and artificial.
gaelruadh19  8/24/2006
I think that this is, perhaps, the worst *modern* variant of Michaela.
ADT  8/16/2006
Mc- and Mac- means "son of", which is quite an odd thing to call a female. The exact meaning of this particular name is "son of Kayla".
― Anonymous User  2/6/2006
It does not mean "son of Kayla". Kayla would have to be derived from Gaelic, for that to be true, and McKayla a Celtic surname which it clearly is not. If McKayla can be argued to mean anything, it is the same as Michael does.

I think the name is awful. Whoever thought it up should take a mandatory Respect for Language course.

A name with a good meaning.
