Comments for MIKAYLA:

This name is supposed to be spelled Michaela. I dislike it. It's too trendy.

I love the name Mikayla. It sounds cool.

I hate all of these dreadful spellings of Michaela; spelling it differently does not make it a different name, let alone "unique".

I love this spelling of the name. It is different and even though it does not change the name's pronounciaton or meaning I think it is easier to spell than Michaela. Michaela is the name of a girl at my school and substitutes always say Michael-a instead of Ma-kay-la. She gets so annoyed.

I really like this name, but I was actually surprised to find it was an alternate spelling for Michaela. Personally, I like this spelling far more than I like "Michaela". Even if there's no change in the meaning or pronunciation, I prefer Mikayla for the simple fact that it makes the name seem like more than just the feminine form of "Michael". Even though it's not really, I like it not being as obvious.

Mikayla sounds a little childish to me.

My little sister's name is Mikaila. I like this name even though I only like 3 spellings: Mikaila, Mikayla, and Macayla. The others are a smidge too creative.

I think Mikayla and other misspellings of Michaela have become so popular that many parents chosing this name for their daughters have no idea that it's the feminine form of Michael. I think Michaela is a lovely name, but I simply can't stand Mikayla or any of the other trendy spellings.

I really don't like this spelling or any other modern spellings of this name. I prefer the original Michaela and the Scandinavian version Mikaela.

A character on the Disney show Hannah Montana is called Mikayla.

It's gross. Mikayla is a bastard child of Michaela. Please don't use this name (spelled this way) on your child.

Trendy, trashy and vapid.

I prefer this spelling over the traditional "Michaela" any day. I didn't even know that "Michaela" was pronounced the same way as "Mikayla" until someone told me. The fact that it has "Michael" in it just makes me wanna say "Michael-uh" every time. Screw tradition, don't name your kid with the hideous "Michaela"!

Michaela is too masculine and Mickayla has too many letters ; I like Mikayla because it's simple to spell and it's feminine and sweet.

What I like about the original spelling is that it's easier to mispronounce, so it sort of reminds me of names in ancient Greek mythology that you'd never give your children but sound amazing or strong or beautiful that somebody is bound to mispronounce at some point, even though Michaela sounds nothing like one of those names. This version just simplifies it all, no offense if your name is spelled this way.

I think the name Mikayla is a great idea whose time has come, no matter what way it is spelled. If it's okay to put an "a" at the end of names such as Carl, Eric, Paul, Robert, etc., to make them girl names, then I see no reason not to with Michael, if you happen to be female and like that name. Mikayla is also a uniquely American name (the name Michael, or "Mikhail", in Russia is only used for boys - there are no "Mikhailas" in slavic-speaking countries). It also makes a great half of a double name (Mikayla Rose, Kayla Mae, Anna Makayla, etc.) for those in the southern U.S.

Hm. Well to be nice, it's better than makayla, Mckayla or mikaila. But honestly, they're all horrible. It's supposed to be spelled Michaela, just michael with an a. But ever since the trashy modern name "Kayla" came around, everyone assumed it was Mc+Kayla. Which its not. I personally think this name sounds childish because it really does sound like mc and Kayla, but if you really have to use it please spell it right. No more of these tacky, modern, childish and silly "creative" spellings.

I honestly prefer this spelling over all the other spellings of this name.
Everyone tries to argue that Michaela is the original and classic version of this name, but that's not even true. Michaela, Mikayla, Makayla, and McKayla all hit the top 1000 starting in the same year, 2000. Makayla was and always has been the most common spelling. So how are any of the variations less valid than Michaela?
Anyway, I dislike the spelling McKayla because it's not supposed to mean "son of" anyone. I don't like Michaela because people will read it and try to pronounce it like Michael. I also don't like Makayla because people will say "muh-KAY-luh" instead of "mih-KAY-luh", which is how I feel this name should actually be pronounced. So I don't think there's anything wrong with this spelling of the name.

This is my cousin's name, and several years after she was born, my aunt mentioned that she wished she'd picked the M-I-C-H-A-E-L-A spelling instead. "Michaela" IS the original and classic spelling of the name because it existed before the other spellings did, back when the name wasn't trendy and hadn't hit the top 1000.
