This is a very good name for it is my name. I find it a wonderful and original name, yet I have had this "new" Scottish and Irish and Welsh name in Canada since 1958.

It's so weird to think of this name as a feminine name, since it's used only as a male name in Denmark. Furthermore it's very old-fashioned, and I really don't like it at all, and not because of it's old-fashioness.

I know a girl called Orla but it's a shortened from Orlanda.

Ugly. The first syllable just doesn't sound very pleasant.

Maybe I have my mind in the gutter, but it's an anagram of oral. So a girl with this name might get teased at school.

This name is very cute, but its anagram is Oral. Not the best anagram in the world.

One of my favorite names in the world. I love how old-fashioned it is, and yet it also seems timeless. I could just as easily imagine an Orla born in 1911 as one born in 2011.

It's too similar to Oral. It sounds ugly as well. Sounds like an ocean monster.

Orla is a gentle feminine name. I think Didi is quite an unfortunate name. Poor you.

Apart from the oral thing, I like this name because it sounds like the Spanish and Portuguese word for hello.

There's a girl at my school named Orla, and although she's very nice, this name is just much too close to oral (as above posters have noted). It makes me think of being confused (possibly due to the 'or' sound), or of gnawing, for some reason.

I find the name Orla very beautiful, underappreciated and special.

Orla, classic and sophisticated. Authentic Irish name with modern appeal.

Ummm... Orla Kiely? The designer?

Orlaith means “golden princess.” The name was shared by both a sister and a daughter of the most famous of the high kings, Brian Boru.

Just a divine, special and magical name!

Great name! Strong, classic, beautiful meaning. Little girls will wear this like a 'golden princess'!

I'm actually using this name for my fantasy animal who is a feline with dark orange fur and leopard like golden spots. And the meaning is "golden princess". I believe it suits her.

Means golden princess. I named my only child Orlaith, after my niece, both beautiful souls.

I like the sound of Orla the deep one, you know creepy fish-girl with a heart of gold. Makes me smile.
Queen-of-Pens  12/4/2017
Apart from the unfortunate anagram several people have mentioned (oral), in Hebrew, the word "orla" means "foreskin". Even more unfortunate, I would say!
