I think Willa is a beautiful name. I want to name my kid this.

This name is similar in sound to the name Willow. Willa in my opinion, is a more elegant alternative.

What I love about Willa is that it is simple but beautiful, much nicer than any other W name. Willa is one of my favorite names, primarily because I plan on using it to honor someone. Simply, if my first child is a girl, it will be her name.

I don't find this name particularly pretty, and even though the name is only two syllables long, it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. In my case, when I pronounce this, my tongue often makes some nasty wet sound. Well, this is still better than Billie.

My name is Willa-rose, and I really love it. The name Willa is not even on the top 1000 girls name of 2007 -- or a few other years before that-- so I feel so original. It is pretty and feminine but not too precious sounding. Only, nicknames are a bit scarce. Billie is a nickname that no one really thinks of though, and is still nice! Overall I am glad I was named this and would not change it at all.

This reminds me of wool and because of that warmness and home. I also think about houses, but for a different reason.

There's an American painter with quite a pretty blended form of this name - Willamarie Huelskamp.

Sounds really cute theoretically, but in real life I can't imagine it on anyone over the age of like 20.

Cute, old fashioned name, I think it would be really cute for a dog! That's not to say that it wouldn't suit a human, I think it'd be a very refreshing choice for a girl today, it isn't even in the top 1000 anymore. I'd rather meet a girl named Willa than say, Madison, Isabella, or Ava, personally.
