I just love the way y looks in names and wanted something similar to her older sisters name which is Shayna so it worked out well!

"My name is Shyla Inez, I am 30 years old and from Omaha NE. I didn't like my name when I was younger because it was so uncommon that it stood out. When someone is talking about a Sarah or Ashley for example chances are you know more than one, but when someone said Shyla....yep it was definitely me! lol But now as an adult I love my uncommon name, I don't like that there is never anything personalized in my name, so I just have to make my own. And I never understood how people pronounce it wrong....(sound it out!) I recently found out that a girl I was friends with when I was 13 named her daughter Shyla because she always thought that my name was so beautiful, I was flattered, and I really feel blessed to have such a pretty name!" Jan. 12, 2015:

There is only one other girl in my school of six hundred kids named Shyla.

I often get called Shula, and Shylo, also Shyla Buff. Its very annoying but i cann cope. I love seeing all these comments and knowing how many people in this world are named Shyla. <3~Shyla" Sep. 20, 2010:
"Hey, my name is Shyla. When I was really little I never used to like my name, mainly because I hated hearing everyone mispronounce it. Now I love it and I think that if it wasn't my name, I would probably name a child of mine that. I met one Shyla once, only she spelt her name with a "C" I have had my name misspelled/mispronounced so many times. Shayla, Shiloh, Sheila, Shyldn, Shla, and I get called Shyla Buff a lot, like Shia LaBeouf, glad to see people are still being creative. Oh, well the story is the same for all of us isn't it? I like my name and it hasn't taken as long as it could've, born Sept. '96" Apr. 28, 2010:

"LMAO!!! My name is Shyla Ann. My birth mom named me that for a reason unknown to me but im glad she did. they kept my name when they adopted me. reading all these comments cracks me up bc i hear the same things and have the same issues. teasing as a child being called Shilo like the dog and nobody can say it right but everyone says its a pretty name, ive even been asked over the phone if i was african american bc of my name. it's the doctors name on Diary of a Mad Black Woman if you listen closely you can hear it. i love my name and it's as unique and pretty as i am and i think only people awesome enough to carry the name should have it. lol. bc its amazing. My sisters name is Ila so if ur pregnant with twin girls that would make cute names: Shyla and Ila....just a suggestion." Oct. 9, 2009:
"I love my name! I get annoyed sometimes though when people don't get it right...I get Sheila a lot! How I will never know! But I am 33 and have loved my name for all of those years. Not only do I have an unusual name...but I have red hair as well...adding to the mystery! I love it...wouldn't change a thing!" Oct. 8, 2009:
"HEY , We named our daughter Shyla , its a beautiful name just like her , being a hindu we wanted a meaningful but unique name and we found that in SHYLA , (its the other name for goddess Parvati and also because it sounds very cosmo with a very traditional hidden meaning, just hoping that she likes it once she grows up" Jul. 25, 2009:

And the famous question "are you shy" but 200% nope I am not :)" Mar. 13, 2009:
"I named my daughter Shyla in June of 2007. I have only received one "negative" reaction so far (a doctor who just gave me a really stupid look when I told her my daughter's name). Everybody seems to comment on how different but pretty the name is. Nobody ever knows how to spell it though (i have seen some crazy spellings, ones that don't even look like names. At Christmas she even got a present that said Shylin lol) and she used to always get called Shayla at the doctors office. A lot of people pronounce it as Shiloh at first (my mom didn't get it right until I had her). As far as the meaning, here are the ones that seem to pop up a lot in my google searches:
*Hindi origin "daughter of the mountain"
*one of the names of the goddess Parvati. it does not actually mean goddess (although a lot of sites list its meaning as "goddess")
*some believe it's the name of a pygmy narcotic
*a couple of sites say it's of latin origin and means blind.
I personally love the name and I hope that it doesn't ever become super popular. It's a great uncommon name." Feb. 23, 2009:
"I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in January of 1993.I was raised to always put special thought and care into what you name someone .
I wanted something unique as I knew she would grow up to be.I heard the name and researched it's meaning and found it to mean musical. Which by the way she is! Yes it gets mispronounced a lot and you hardly ever can find anything monogrammed but it is a small price to pay for a name you love and she does too! She really appreciates having a pretty and uncommon name." Nov. 9, 2008:
"My name is Shyla Lyn, and I'm 28. I love that my mom gave me such a unique name that rolls off the tongue. People sometimes mispronounce or spell it wrong, but most people respond well to it. Of course I get the "are you shy?" line a lot, but I just laugh it off because I'm not. I've only met one other Shyla and she works at a Starbucks like me. What are the odds?" Aug. 4, 2008:
"my name is Shyla and i absolutely love it. It is unique and sets you apart from others. I am 28 years old and thought i was the only adult that had the name!" Mar. 29, 2008:
"I'm naming my baby girl due in June Shyla. Love it!" Jan. 16, 2008:
"hey my name is shyla most of thepeople i meet they have to ask how to spell or say my name that is wht i go though every day." Oct. 18, 2007:
"We are from India and named our daughter Shyla.
We felt that it was a short, sweet, yet uncommon name that was easy to pronounce for Americans.
The fact that it is one of the names of the
Hindu Godess Parvati was also very appealing." Sep. 20, 2007:
"My name is Shyla, I am 26 years old, and I love my name.
For years I thought I was the only one and now I have met
5 others where I live, in British Columbia Canada. I do dislike how it is not pronounced right or always change to Shilo. And now seethat there is many more around the world. Shypaws@hotmail.com, see how many there are and what ages?" Apr. 11, 2007:

Jan. 13, 2007:
"Hey my name is Shyla too, I'm 19 and from Washington, and I really like my name. However, in elementary school that wasn't always the case when kids would always ask me about my name and tease me for it because of how different it is." Jan. 2, 2007:

"Yes, Shyla is a beautiful name that we all share. My only hope is that it remains uncommon. Although, I think Shyla Stylez (the porn star) lightly tainted it for us all, ladies. Still, it's a wonderful name and I love to hear the natural softest that comes with saying it, especially from mouths of love ones." Jan. 23, 2010:

"I am due with a baby girl in a week, and fell in love with the name "Shyla" when I saw it online about a month ago. I had been searching names for months, and was so excited to finally find an original, feminine, yet simple name which I loved. However, I've had a lot of mixed reactions from people as well as family - (usually blank stares, or sometimes even negative comments) which has made me doubt my decision. My husband is also not a big fan of the name, much to my disappointment. I'm not sure if this is b/c it is so unusual, or if it's just unpopular? I'm still trying to decide what to name her, as my husband says "it's up to me"." Aug. 26, 2007:
"I want to name my baby girl Shyla, as it has a deep meaning in my hindu religion as well.I think its a very pretty name and very unique." Jul. 26, 2007:
"My name is Shyla. I am from New Zealand & from my experiences, although the name is easy enough to read, many people cannot pronounce it properly. I've been called 'Sheilah, Shayla, Charlotte...'. My name is apparently supposed to signify one who is 'loyal to God' in the Celtic origin. The Hindi origin of the name sees Shyla as meaning 'Goddess'. The correct way to pronounce this name is Shy - la. Very simple." Oct. 5, 2006:
"Shyla: i've never met another one but once someone told me they knew another shyla and its said Shy-la..just as its spelt :)" Dec. 3, 2005:
What do you think about the name Shyla?
