I know it's not always that popular but I like the name Leila so going to go with it, and need a middle name now. My other dd is called Sofia Grace. What are your thoughts?

Ruprekt Wed 10-Jul-13 00:05:57




How about Grace? Or Jane?

BetterDaze Wed 10-Jul-13 00:10:58

My other dd's middle name is Grace, mine is Jane but she could have that too. Like Rose and May smile thanks

I too thought of Yasmin straight off! Not even a name I often suggest on Baby Names.

BetterDaze Wed 10-Jul-13 11:07:58

Some lovely suggestions there, thanks

I went with Emma Louise

zimbomaman Wed 10-Jul-13 19:17:55

Leila Louise
I love alliterative names.

MrsP23 Wed 10-Jul-13 22:08:46

I think Leila rose has a lovely ring to it x

BetterDaze Wed 10-Jul-13 22:21:11

I agree Leila Rose is lovely but my best friend named her dd Iona Rose so wondering if it would be bad form to use it?

BetterDaze Wed 10-Jul-13 22:22:08

You'd think it would be an easier business this naming lark!

Leyla Frances was one we considered for DD but with your spelling and your dds name I think:

Leila Francesca

I have a Leila Julieta, but she was almost a Leila Bridget. Other possibilities were Susan and Margaret. It seems to go with m

Swanlike Wed 10-Jul-13 22:29:21

Most things, sorry!

BetterDaze Wed 10-Jul-13 22:40:42

Hadn't thought of Margaret, that's my mum's name so I should have! thanks. Leila Francesca is lovely too.

I think Elizabeth sounds really pretty with it. It not a name iv ever suggested but I like it with Leila grin
My best friends having a Leila if she has a girl - *runs off to suggest this.

How many syllables does your surname have?

Leila is a beautiful name. Leila Hope sounds good with your other daughter's name too! I think you should go for a monosyllabic name for the MN. I do like Fay and Faith. May and June also nice.

DaveMccave Sat 20-Jul-13 00:11:05

I know a Leila Faye, which I think goes quite well.

BetterDaze Sat 20-Jul-13 00:27:14

I like that, liking Leila Faith too now...hmm think it's a choice between Leila Hope and Leila Faith, thanks!

Are other ideas, but Hope and Faith lovely.

Faith, hope or joy would go lovely with your other dd's mn.
Will also throw in Blythe.

ScrambledSmegs Tue 23-Jul-13 13:47:07

Aw, I like Calypso! She could be a rock star with that name. Your mum would get used to it grin

Now, is it Lay-la, Lye-la or Lee-la?

UriGeller Tue 23-Jul-13 14:01:41

Leila Maria.

I know someone who's just had an Ava Maria!

kandirue Wed 24-Jul-13 14:45:53

My name is Leila (pronounced Lee-la but always getting called Lay-la) and my middle name is Alicia smile

forevergreek Thu 25-Jul-13 13:45:15

Leila Leanne ?

Although prefer Layla

ems1910 Thu 25-Jul-13 18:55:51

I used to go out with a Layla Jayne. How are you pronouncing Leila? I know two who both pronounce differently.
