  • "My name Keila is pronounced as it is spelt, not Kayla but Keila. Most persons who hear the name for the first time, pronounce it incorrectly as Kayla or Keilia or Kaylia.

  • "My name is Keila and I am 14 years old. You say my name like Kayla but it is always mispronounced. It can be very frustrating because even if I have known people for a really long time they will take one look at my name and think that they have been saying it wrong all along. People always ask me where I come from or where my parents are from. Even my teachers will say and spell my name wrong all year. But the one thing that I love about my name is that no one else has it and thats its very unique. My parents loved the name Kayla and when they went to hawaii they saw the name Leila and new it would be interesting to merge the two names. I would highly recommend that you use this name because it is one that repreasents beauty and individualism. And even though no one else has this name I feel extremely special."

  • "My name is Keila. Pronounced how it should be ?Kayla.? My name is the Samoan spelling and that?s why it?s pronounced differently. I am 16 years old and have learned to love my name. I used to hate it and wanted to be a Rachel or Rebeka. But over the years I?ve been asking people if they had never met me what they would think my name was, and almost all of them say Keila. Anyone with the name Keila is blessed with a unique name that will give them happiness and luck if pronounced correctly. -Love, Keila" Apr. 13, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "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." Apr. 10, 2010: Report as inappropriate
