I like them all,*mixup*. Got a soft spot for Layla, for nostalgic reasons because of the song.

I love Leila - prefer it to Layla, but either way it is a lovely name.

Layla is lovely, also like Amira (that sp best i think)
Isla is not really a muslim name? well not really known as one? so the others are better if he does want that incorportated in the name. Amenna is nice but im not sure about the sp, personally prefer Amina but then i know it can b confusing if its Aaminah or Ameenah..

My sister is a Leilah.

IME, most people will guess at Layla as the spelling because of the Eric Clapton song - which she will grow up hating
