Comments for MCKAYLA:

A name with a good meaning.

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".

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.

I think that this is, perhaps, the worst *modern* variant of Michaela.

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.

Are we really THIS obsessed with Ireland that we need to add a "Mc" in front of EVERYTHING?

This is hilarious. It sounds like a McDonald's special. "I'll have a Big Mckayla!"

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 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.

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.

Wow. I had no idea that you can make a trendy name and make it even trendier.
-- number1212  8/23/2008
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.

I'll have the McKayla and a large Coke and fries, thanks.

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.

Hayley Williams, the lead singer of Paramore, has a little sister named McKayla.
-- Dawson  11/14/2010
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
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?

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.

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 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.

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
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.
