My name is Carla and I really like it. I have never had any negative comments about it, only positive. I think it sounds feminine but not too girly and frilly. It is a strong name that I have grown into and I couldn't myself imagine having any other name.

Ooh, I love this name a lot! It just gives me an impression of someone who enjoys life and wishes to bring happiness all around.

Most of us prefer the elegant and timeless Carla over tired/dated Carly.

I prefer Carly. Carla fits an old lady better than a young girl.
KarenB  5/1/2020
Very elegant! I prefer this over Carly, as it sounds more mature.

I think this name has a beautiful meaning, I have read that it means free woman. Here in Italy this name isn't very common in younger women.

Carla is a gorgeous name.

Well whenever I introduce my daughters, one being Carla, we always get such pleasant compliments on what a beautiful name and her twin being Leiah. I am pleased with my choice, as my twins are the only girls in their grade with those names. Let haters be haters, everyone for their own.

Carla van Raay is an Australian author. Born in Tilburg, Netherlands, she and her family moved to Australia when she was young. Her father obtained work as a gardener at a convent school in Kew run by the Sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus, founded in early 19th-century France. Through this employment, he was able to have her enrolled as a student at the school. After graduation she joined the Sisters who ran the school. She persevered in that life for 18 years, leaving the convent in 1969.

Carla is a really cool name. When I was growing up I only knew one Carla, and I remember not liking her name because it started with "car" (kids like / dislike things often for very dumb reasons). But now... it's just cool and confident!

My 9 year old daughter is named Carla Mollie, and we love the name, obviously! Only ever had positive comments about her name, and she is the only one in her school, unlike the many, many Amy's, Ellie's, Rebecca's and the like that fill the class registers!

This name sounds kind of bitchy to me, but I like it. I prefer the K spelling though.

My moms best friend was Carman and her little sister was Marla and that is how I got the name Carla. I had always wished for K until today, seeing it typed, Carla does look softer than Karla. Thanx, Carla Ann :)

Well I think it's a lovely name... I have had mine a long time.. I'm pleased my mum loved the name.
carla-jane  6/26/2014
Cute and sassy.
Bluefield  11/20/2013
I really dislike this name. Not to offend any Carlas out there but I think it's really ugly, masculine... totally boring. It's a very common name too, which really turns me off. Unfortunately, I dislike the Karla with a K spelling even more. That makes this name look even worse. Sorry.

Carla Zampatti is a famous Australian fashion designer.

I love Carla - so light and airy, tripping off the tongue. I don't like the K spelling, which looks harsh.

Cara and Carmela are also pretty.

When you love the name Clara as much as I do, Carla sounds thick and unrefined.
EmilyOlive  7/18/2008
Carla seems like a lot more mature and grown-up version of Carly, so I prefer it.

Hmmm, this name really reminds me of a bogan Australian name. I seriously hold a grudge against this name, or Carlene or Carl anything for that matter.
― Anonymous User  9/13/2006
I know four people named Carla and none of them are "bogans" like one ignorant person above said. I think it's a nice name. Better than Charlie on a girl, that's for sure.
zaki95  9/14/2012
Carla seems like a very classy name to me. I like it better with a C than with a K. Carla looks friendlier than Karla.

Carla is a name well known for her beauty and class. Although usually bossy, can be a very caring person. Desires a hero for their partner.
