Twyla is Cherokee for twilight, as a 3/4 Cherokee this is obvious to me.

It is Middle English, and has the same derivation as 'tweed' or 'twine'. The meaning of Twyla is 'woven with double thread'.

Sounds like someone who cant pronounce the word 'Tyler.' Not that I like the name Tyler anyway.

In Terry Pratchett's "Hogfather", Twyla and her brother Gawain are looked after by Susan, Death's granddaughter, who is working as a governess. She regards both names as inexcusable evidence of social climbing gone wrong; the children are, fortunately, rather nicer than their parents.

This was my grandmother's name and I always found it beautiful, because it reminded me of the word twilight. Her daughter was called Twilaine, which is apparently some variation off of the name Twyla.

Not that there's anything wrong with a name making people think of twilight, but the word itself doesn't have the most pleasant sound with the 't' and 'w' following one another. This can sound very annoying in nasal, loud-mouthed pronunciation, just like Dwayne.

The name Twila or Twyla was orginated from England and is considered Middle English. The name means "Women of woven thread." I hope this information is helpful to your website. I find it fascinating to read the meanings and origin of all names listed. Keep up the good work.

I love this name! I didn't even know that it was a name. I myself am a bearer of one of these less-popular names, but I'd trade my name for Twyla anyday. If it's derived from 'twilight', that's awesome! If not, the name's still very cool.

I think that, if it's from twilight, it sahould be TWYIE-la. If it's the 'woven' one, it should be 'TWEE-la.' Just my opninion.

At first, I didn't like this name, but the more I think about it, the more beautiful it becomes!

There is a cute cat character called Twyla in the animated 2006 film Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses.

There is a Monster High doll called Twyla.

The name Twyla is gorgeous and stunning! I think this spelling is best as some people may incorrectly say "Twill-a" or "Tweela" for the name Twila instead of "TWIE-lÉ™".
