What do think of girls name Ayla (pronounced like Layla but without the 'L') - means Oak Tree.

I like unusual but simple names with a nice meaning (nature etc type thing) so welcome any other suggestions. for girls and boys (though we're more set that side of things I think!)

Outing myself completely but son is called Iden so it has to go with that.

I think Ayla is beautiful and goes really well with Iden smile

I like it, but when I first saw it just misread it as Alya (like aaliyah, alia) until i looked again so you might get that a few times but i think it is nice

If you can handle the association with Clan of the Cave Bear go for it, I actually think its a beautiful name

I like it, I didn't know its meaning which is lovely too. I'm afraid my first thought would be the Clan of the Cave Bear series though sad

clan of the cave bear? Never heard of it!?

I came across a Brady the other day and I thought it was a lovely name. Apparently it's Irish, well so she told me anyway. It helped that she was pretty.

With Ayla (to be pronounced to sound like Layla) would you spell it as Ayla or Aila?

I know an Ayla, I think it's beautiful.

I know an Ayla too and I think it's beautiful. She pronounces it 'Isla' though.
