Comment left Aug 08, 2010: "My names Kayla. I love my name. I don't think it sounds childish. But I guess you have to go by how the name sounds with your personality. Like, if your a really dark person and your name is Kayla, that might not be a good name for you. Oh well. Everbody's opinion is different. I wasn't named after anyone. But my middle name Christine cam from my great grandma. One of the good things about my name is that a lot of good songs are named after me. You guys should check out Kayla by Party like Summer. The only bad thing about my name is that people call me Caitlin and McKayla a lot. It took almost two months to get the guy who would eventually be my boyfriend to quit calling me McKayla. And he liked me! You'd think he's pay more attention! Anyway, I haven't met many people with my name. 7 or 8 at the most." (Report as inappropriate)
