Opinions on this name? I think it's pretty and feminine, but does it scream Clan of the Cave Bear?

Is it not just Isla with a different spelling?

Fishpants Wed 19-Oct-11 14:41:13

No it's pronounced with the long A sound rather than I.

sorry, I don't like it - its a 'something and nothing' sort of name I think. Is it short for something?

as long as she doesn't have a brother called Jondalar you'll be ok

MrsOzz Wed 19-Oct-11 22:59:54

No then. Makes me think if beer (ale).

I love it it was on our shortlist for dd1 I think it is beautiful and yes it is a connective to the earth children series but thats not a bad thing Ayla was a strong person

I think there will be pronounciation confusion as I have heard of it being used and pronounced like Isla - though personally think it should be pronounced Ai-la. Not a huge fan, and have not read the clan of the cave bear books, but if it is used as a tribute to the books it would be nice as would have some meaning.

A bit bland.

AlpinePony Thu 20-Oct-11 21:22:04

I too would pronounce it isla.

I love Ayla, suggested it to my dh but he said no x

I like it, but wonder if partially because I liked the earth's children books so much?
used to have a boss called Ayala- would that be a possible?
