  • "Too many THOTs named Makayla and variants everywhere. Trash name." Sep. 18, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "This name is not only so very COMMON, but its also spelled a million different was to which none of them are pretty. Some of these moms that have tried to spell the name different to give it uniqueness only make matters worse.I feel bad for the poor kids that have to remember how to spell this name especially if its outrageously spelled. For example Macaila...or Micaliah <----what is that?! or Michaelia....Makaylah or the ugliest one i have seen yet..Mykchalea <----such an awful spelling i dont have words. If you want to give your child individuality than why dont you choose from the other oh i dont know billion and one different names in the world that are used far less often! I mean really. On top of all that I have not ever met a Makayla that was nice. Every little girl ive met was a stuck up spoiled snob who treated their parents like crap, or a badly behaved young teen or the adult ones ive met have all been .....not very lady like at all to put it as nice as possible. I dont want to be vulgar. I set aside my feelings for the name when i inherited a step daughter named makayla. but she unfortunately has not broken the curse of the ill fated name. My heart goes out to anyone that does have this name and they for whatever reasons dont even like it themselves." Dec. 4, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I look at it and think Mah-kah-lah. Not in a good way." Apr. 20, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "In my opinion, this is a nice name, but it's a lot more common than people think it is. I have run into TONS of Michaelas or McKaylas or Mickaylas before in the past, or heard of them. If you want to use this for your baby, use it as a middle name for now, at least until the popularity has had a chance to decline. Or save it for when it isn't so common. I like Makaylee for a girl, because it is not as popular, and I only have met one Makaylee before (although it was spelled Michele) so perhaps you should consider going with that. Makayla isn't a terrible's just getting really popular, and the more uncommon people think it is the more that popularity is going to rise. It's not my name, but I have a friend who has it, and according to her there have been a lot of times where people have said "Oh, my sister's name is Makayla!" or "My cousin's name is Makayla!" "A lady named Makayla works here!" or "I know a Makayla!"" Jan. 29, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "This name is so common. It's like soap-opera name." Jan. 23, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "This name is very trendy and overused. it is not unique and most of the spelling variations do not look good. Makayla is probably the worst, and the best would be Micaela, because Michaella has too many pronounciation and spelling mistakes." Feb. 26, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Names makayla and i like the way its spelled and the haters that dont like it splled this way, it easier to spell and your able to pronounce it right and it's a good name and spelling so if you don't like it than go check your name before you hate on someone's else's name." Jan. 28, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Makayla and honestly I?m not the biggest fan of it. Not because people spell it wrong, not because of the bratty association (although that isn?t my favorite), but rather how basic it is. While I don?t know all that many personally, I certainly see a lot of them in the media and overall know people associate it with being such. I don?t think the name is awful, I just wish it wasn?t so overused." Mar. 20, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Makayla and for all the haters idkk why your even fighting about this like itv the parents choice not yours and the letters of your name have nothing to do w your personality just saying" May. 31, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is MaKayla and it's also spelt that way. For you haters that think it's a dumb or uncool name you better think twice because it's amazing. The many ways to spell and say it make it even better. And for those who think MaKayla's are brats it's not true. I may seem like one right now but give me a chance and you'd change your mind. My friends think it's a beautiful name and I agree." May. 20, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Makala said the same way but spelled very different!!" Mar. 18, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "Actually, my name is Macalah. It is pronounced the same as Makayla, but it is very uncommon." Mar. 16, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I had this system at first. The prlobem is that it was more confusing because lets say colors go from yellow to orange and to red, the confusing part is that some of the orange colors than look darker than some of the red ones, so it looks strange. That is why I made the system with only 2 colors and with white in the middle, because the transition look better and more clear.VN:F [1.9.20_1166]" Mar. 14, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm 53 years old and the spelling for the name is Michaela. It's the femine gender for Michael. There are other national changes like Micaela for spanishe etc. All other spellings are recent (last 20 years) make up spellings.

  • "i THINK THAT THE NAME MAKAYLA IS LOVELY, AS IT MY NAME" Jan. 26, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I think the name Makayla is beautiful to say, truly, it means nothing, but it is another form of Michaela which is a form of Michael which is my grandfather's name, so I guess it means something personal to me. It is fun to say and it looks pretty and it wil keep the person young even when she's 85. It looks good on paper too. I love it!" Jun. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is one of the worst names ever! It seems that new parents these days are determined to make their Michaela (the actual spelling of that name) unique by spelling it Makayla, Mykayla, Mikaila, Mackaila, McKayla, Miquaila, etc." May. 12, 2008: Report as inappropriate
