"My name is Cailah (Ky-la) and of course people pronounce wrong but when I tell them how to say it, they say that it's a very pretty name. I'm sure that we all answer or turn heads when someone says "Kayla" because people pronounce it wrong most of the time. "Cai" is pronounced (Ky) and the rest is "lah." Girls who have this name are very lucky and blessed." Jan. 25, 2016:

"Shocker, I am Kyla! :) I am 27 and am named after my Dad, Kyle. My middle name is Lynn which is my Mom's middle name. I worked for a telecommunications company for 6 years and had to answer the phone. I got Kayla, Pat, Tyler, Kyler, Skyla. Although you would think I would be used to it by now, I HATE it when people call me Kayla. I'm not sure what it is but its just irritating when I've just told you my name and you interpret it the way you think it should be. Please listen to the words that are coming out of my mouth. Because of my name, I appreciate names and will always take the time to learn a name if its not common. Also, in email, people spell my name Kayla or Kyle. Like....Its in my email address. This is not a joke. If you can read and type on a computer, you should be able to get it right :). I, as well, get told I have a pretty name. I love my name and think its cool there are so few of us!" Dec. 5, 2013:

"My name's Kyla, too. What a shocker :) Like how everyone else has said, my name has been mispronounced many times. In fact, it's probably been pronounced more times wrong than right. But I've become used to it over the years, and try my best to ignore the awkward moment when the person whose car I'm in calls me Kayla. As for meeting someone with the same name as me, it happened recently when I was out with a friend. A mother was calling to her little girl, "Kyla," when i turned around. It was so crazy, I thought I was hearing things." Jul. 15, 2011:

"i too carry the name kyla. i have had this name since 1977.my mom had no idea what to call me so my aunt thought kyla was unique so with no other choices on the table that became my name. i so hated my name when i was younger cause people kept pronouncing it wrong. i did .not realize the miss pronouncing of a four letter word would continue into adult hood.i did work with a kilah in high school. that was the first time the second time was a little girl who once was a patient of mine in the late 90's.in jr.high got kicked out of class on the first day cause the teacher butchered my name so i yelled its k-y-l-a!! she told me i was rude.so i told her, no whats rude is this is english class which my name is a four letter english word that you change the "y" to "i" and you got what? kila which is my name but with a"y" duh! its safe to say she never got my name wrong again. years later she told me she respected me for not allowing any one to call me any thing other than my name, just correct the person with a little more restraint.point taken mrs.codswell(smile)" May. 23, 2011:

But I absolutely LOVE my name. It gets annoying though not just when people can't pronounce my name, because I'm used to it, (but sometimes I get sick of even telling people my name and literally just spell it out), but when I go to the store and cant find a key chain or a bracelet or anything with my name on it. Sometimes if there are like key chains or plaques, or something that are just letters I spell my name with them and hope that Eventually some merchandiser person will recognize how pretty the name is and make me a key chain.

"MY NAME IS KYLA LESHAE AND I'M 34 YRS OLD. I'VE MET A TWO OR THREE OTHER LITTLE GIRLS WITH MY OR OUR NAME. I'VE NEVER HEARD OF OR SEE ANYONE MY AGE WITH THE NAME KYLA.

"My daughter is 12yrs old and she has the beautiful name Kyla also. I fell in love with the name while working for the Public Library. There was a little girl named Kyla and she always borrowed this book "Do Like Kyla", by Angela Johnson. My daughter always complained about not having anything in her name so this book was a great gift for her. She now has a little baby brother that she reads her book to. However, though she's gotten over being called Kayla all the time she loves her name. My mom has the entire family calling her Kyla Mae because she felt it was missing something. I love my Kyla and her name. Kyla is a great well-rounded child. I'm blessed to have her for a daughter......." Feb. 7, 2010:
"I named my daughter Kylla (using two l's). She is 8 years old and a bit unsure of it right now. She mostly complains that there is nothing with her name on it and that it is always mispronounced. Adults have complimented on how pretty it is though, and I hope she grows up to enjoy its uniqueness. Kyllas are terrific!!" Jan. 27, 2010:
"I guess we can all agree that our name is hardly EVER pronounced correctly! LOL! even after you correct people, they still continue to get it wrong. Oh well, the name ROCKS!! I love it. I noticed lower down on this thread that someone named their daughter Kyla Brooke... Mine is Kyla Brooks! Very cool :)
28 yrs old, Tucson AZ" Jan. 9, 2010:
"I love my name. When I was young, I wanted to be called by my last name, Justine, but I've learned that it's great having an uncommon name. I've become so used to being called Kayla, though, that I catch myself answering to Kayla, even if I'm not being spoken to. I'm also called Kylie and, ever once in a while, Kyle.
Anyway, I've never met another Kyla in person, so seeing all the comments is pretty cool.
