  • "I am the mother of Kayla Marie felecia (not giving her last name of course) I started watching days of our lives when I was 13 (wow in 81-82 ish) and I feel in love with that name, nothing to do with the story of kayla and patch, its that at that time that was a NEW NAME never ever heard it ever before and I said to myself that if I ever had a daughter I wouuld name her Kayla....and I did! so I think thaT i WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE FIRST parents to name my baby girl kayla which has now become a really common name. she was born in late 1989...so most of the people who named thier girls kayla later in the years is becuase they loved the name but probably not knowing where the unique name originalted from."

  • "I am young and love my name! <3 Its common,yea,but its very uniquly spelled like my sister. You may think my name would be spelled with 'Y' but mine is 'Kaila' and my sisters name is common but its spelled with 'I' too! :)" Jul. 23, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "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." Aug. 8, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kayla. I was [like most of those who commented] named after Kayla Brady on the daytime drama "Days Of Our Lives". My mom at the time had never heard of anyone else with the name and thought it was pretty. Now, there are tons of people with the name. But I still love it. It is a very easy name to pronounce and spell, yet I have had some problems with it. Spelling errors include: Kalya. Pronunciations: Well, I have had people say it like Caw-Lah. And have also been called Caleb. So strange. Anyways, I like the name but I don't use it as much as my nicknames. I usually just have people call me "Kay". I think it's prettier. P.S. My mother has said that had she heard the name "Michaela" before I was born, that would have been my name. If I ever had to change my name or wanted to, that is also what I would choose."

I've read that it's really popular but I hardly ever meet another person named Kayla. M mom named my Kayla because it was a gaelic name that she really liked, and at the time she had never heard it before. To her dismay (or maybe just amusement; to m dismay at least), when the nurse at the hospital asked what my name would be she said, did you name her after that soap opera character? I'm glad I don't run into it too often though. I find it strange to meet someone with the same name. I was born in '88, so I guess it was just getting popular."
