Comment left Sep 07, 2011: "My name is Keila as well. People have trouble saying it, but it's pronounced as Kayla. It's origin is Hebrew. My mom got it from the Bible (Joshua 15:44). Though the English version has it as Keilah, but the Spanish version has Keila. Anywho, the meaning to it is 'fortaleza' which is strenght in spanish. Oh and I love my name too! :)" (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Apr 10, 2010: "I have found meanings, lively, aggressive; pure; slender, fair; glorious chief; town in Judah; who is like God?
It seems to be confusing as to where it came from and everyone has their own opinion. I actually didn't get the name from anywhere when I named my daughter. I just sort of made it up and then checked to see if it was a real name already being used. I have found it pronounced Kay-lah, and Kee-lah. I like Kee-lah, and that's what I use for my daughter. I know too many people who have a name pronounced Kay-lah, regardless of how it's spelled. But I have my reasons for why I like it pronounced that way." (Report as inappropriate)
