I'm calling it now, this name will be the next Emma.
Looks made up.
I've noticed this name on baby name sites. It seems to be getting popular. However, I'm not sure how it's pronounced. Is it like Eye-la or A-la (rhyming with Kayla)?
Pronounced like the name Isla. Super cute name! I like this, and may use it for a daughter one day.
If my last comment is unclear, this name is pronounced like Eye-la.
Ayla is the name of the cave woman character from the game Chrono Trigger.
Ayla is also a Turkish name. It means "halo" in Turkish.
Ayla sounds like a dream, clouds marshmallows and pillows, a soft delicate name, with a twist of impatience and wildness.
Aayla Secura from Star Wars is a bearer of this name, but she spells it with two a's instead of one.
Ayla Kell is an American actress currently starring on the ABC Family show "Make It or Break It".
Ayla Brown is a singer (former American Idol contestant), basketball star at Boston College and eldest daughter of Republican Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts.
The central female character in Nadine Gordimer's novel, _My Son's Story_ is named Aila, a slightly different spelling I haven't come across outside of the novel.
The Hebrew word for oak is Alon, which is a seperate boy name. In Hebrew, the name Ayla does not exist as far as I know, especially not as a feminine form of Alon. The Hebrew spelling you've got there is Ela, which means, as clevelandkentevans said, terebinth. And it isn't pronounced Ayla, but eh-LAH. So you should remove this, I think. [noted -ed]
In Latin, 'ala' means 'wing'.
Basically this name means "strength" or "strong authority". A possible root (in Latin letters, "AYL") means something along the lines of "strong" - related to "oak tree", "pillar", "stag deer" and "chief" - but moreso to "ox". Another root ("AYLH") means "strong one", related to a hind or deer. Also, there are six words in Hebrew that mean "oak". One of them is "Elah", which has been translated as both "oak" and "terebinth". These translations are difficult, mostly because words with ancient roots may change slightly over time in meaning or pronunciation, such as Greek has.
According to the following website about plants in Israel, Elah is the word for terebinth and Alon is the word for oak tree, which first in with Smadar Shir Sidi's _The Complete Book of Hebrew Baby Names_. So I really question whether or not Ayla can mean "oak tree" in Hebrew.
