I love my name, it's special like myself." Mar. 21, 2009:

"Actually, it's Quiche (pronounced Kee-chay), from a Mayan dialect. Maybe not the spelling, but the pronunciation. It means "Below the 10 tribes" or something like that. I think it's talking about the 10 tribes of Israel that got lost. My dad went to Guatemala before he got married and was in the city Quetzaltenango, or Xelajuj, and when my mom saw it, she said Sheyla would be the name of her first girl. So, lo and behold, here I am." Jun. 9, 2008:
"the correct way to say this name is: Sh-ay-lar. Named my second born girl in 2004 I understand the origin is the Irish form of Sheila, obviously with the same meanings. It seems to be growing in popularity." Oct. 3, 2005:
