How would you spell the name "Lyla"? (lie-lah)

DH and I like this name but can't agree on a spelling. Thought I'd come here and see everyone's thoughts.

  • ok so I thought it would be cute to name my kids diff names and spell them all weird.. ha ya right!! my daughter is Tayviah.. bcuz i like the H 2. Well its hard for her in school. they always spell and say her name wrong. She gets upset about it and half the time she doesnt say anything so she gets called the wrong dam name. stick with the correct way to spell the name!!! I also have a son Izayah.. can you figure that one out.. so i thought he would be able to spell it. just stick with the reg way.

  • We have a family friend named this, she spells it Lila. Not sure if it affects the spelling or not but she is from Lebanon.

  • I think Lyla is good. I like the Y in names. I have a daughter named Jordyn (Jordan). The Y makes it cute :)
