Is this a crazy name?

I want to name my daughter something a little unusual but not crazy.. So I thought of the name Leighlah but my mom said it's too crazy. What do you think? I don't want her to be ashamed of her name when she grows up!

Leighlah Gail

  • I think its cute- its your child not your moms :) She could always give her a nickname like Leigh or something. Don't worry about your mom- its your child. But i think its cute!

  • It's a lot less crazy than many I've seen. But keep in mind that half the people who see it written (teachers, doctors, etc.) are going to mispronounce it.

  • It's nice.It's also spelt in different ways and it reminds me of Eric Clapton's song.

  • I don't think it is crazy. I would pronounce it Leelah though, since Leigh is pronounced Lee, so make sure this is what you have in mind, otherwise she'll be correcting people all the time.

  • Doesn't sound to crazy to me. I have heard it several times before, just spelled Leyla or layla.
