"In 1997 I named my younger daughter Camila Grace, after Camila O'Gorman (foreign film, 1984). It seems to have soared in popularity in the last few years, at least here in Miami. I attribute this to a Spanish-language soap opera which was all the rage down here. As to the pronunciation, I pronounce it Cuh-mih-luh. Just like Camilla (which is Italian). In Italy and in Spain, they are both pronounced Ca-mee-la, but I prefer the Anglicized pronunciation. If I lived anywhere else, other than Miami, the name would probably be uncommon." Feb. 13, 2009:

"I love my name. It is of Spanish origin and it is beautiful. However, people do not know how to pronounce my name. It is Camila...it sounds like Cam-ee-la (it rhymes with tequila). People say Camilia or camilla (sounds like camel-la and rhymes with Pamela) which is wrong since itýs a Spanish name.

I like that my name is not very common and I think it is a beautiful, feminine, name (when pronounce right!)." Nov. 27, 2007:
