HOw would you prnounce this name : Alayla?

HOnestly i dont think its that hard to pronounce, and im using the name anyway.. its pronunced like it looks Ah-Lay-Lah- but some people cant figure it out... how would you pronounce it just by looking at it? (btw it is NOT a made up name.. it is of greek origin and means warrior goddess)

  • I see the name Layla with a schwa in front. Ah-lay-la. Like the name Alayna . . but with an L. Sounds hebrew.

  • I wouldn't worry too much about it, people mispronounce my name, Selena. And it's a pretty straightforward name too.

  • I would say it "uh-lay-lah" which I guess is pretty close to how you're pronouncing it.
