What do people think of Kayla?
Can i have some in-depth thoughts?

I'm afraid the problem with that is that she will be madly in love with my DS. (Seriously, we know 3 Kaylas and all 3 have either declared their love for him or tried to kiss him or both) It could be quite the cross to bear.

My in-depth though is it should be Michaela. That's as in depth as I can manage I'm afraid.

My gut tells me that the prevailing trend on this thread is that you will be told it is "too American". I could be wrong.

or, it is an abbreviation of Michaela.
or, it makes me sing 'hayla, hayla shayla, hayla shayla, haylaaa hooooooo'

I used the name Kayla in one of my stories. It was a story where a muscle-bound high schooler who thinks he's God's Gift to women gets turned into his ideal girl by a magic belt. I guess from what's been said that it doesn't work too well on a real child.

Lovely name! My next door neighbour's daughter is called that and a very pretty lovely little girl she is too.

I think it sounds very pretty but it is very American and 1980s American at that.

I would use the name Michaela instead, which is far more beautiful and classic.

I think it sounds quite American but that's not necessarily a problem. I like girls names that end in 'a'.

It was on my list if I had a girl. Ended up with boy. I like it

I like it.

It is a very downmarket American name.

Nice, but would have to be short for Michaela.

Fluffypoms Tue 16-Oct-12 19:18:07

I think it looks ugly but can't work it why. I don't much like the sound either.

Choufleur Tue 16-Oct-12 19:24:21

Don't like it but that may be because of the accent where I live - it would be pronounced Kaylaarr

DebK2012 Tue 16-Oct-12 19:27:32

I like Michele more, but not Shelley!

Zara1984 Tue 16-Oct-12 19:29:18

I know 4 dogs called Kayla. So errrr no I wouldn't choose it for a baby grin

Also it's a bit <judgey pants> trailer park IMO
