Can't tell if I find it posh or think it sounds made up...

Pronounced ZYE-lah

MrsBucketxx Fri 22-Feb-13 09:23:49

I'm wanting to add phone at the end but its nice otherwise.

It sounds like a weight loss drug. Sorry.

YummyMummyFeelingFunny Fri 22-Feb-13 09:54:27

Damn you seeker you got there before me grin

YummyMummyFeelingFunny Fri 22-Feb-13 09:54:59

Sorry op but she would get tortured!

NotADragonOfSoup Fri 22-Feb-13 09:55:12

I think it sounds made up, not posh.

navada Fri 22-Feb-13 09:55:39

It's awful.

I know a Xia. Better. Still a bit odd.

Snap, lljkk! I was exactly going to come on and say it sounds like a weight loss drug! That's bizarre, but obviously suggests there is a connection.

Not keen. I do like Myla and Kyla though.

navada Fri 22-Feb-13 10:35:37

Kyla is a beautiful name.

BabyRoger Fri 22-Feb-13 10:37:59

I don't think it sounds posh. I do sounds made up.and I also just want to say phone.

therugratref Fri 22-Feb-13 10:45:49

Sounds like a food additive not a person. Sorry.

DaveMccave Fri 22-Feb-13 10:57:20

It does sound made up to me to be honest. What about Zia or Skylar?

I prefer Xiola (zy-ola) but to be honest, I think that names beginning with 'X' just don't look right. Perhaps this is because they're so rare in the UK and Ireland.

StephaniePowers Fri 22-Feb-13 11:17:49

I like Xenia (the name, obviously grin )
Xyla means 'wooden' doesn't it?

CheeseStrawWars Fri 22-Feb-13 11:22:19

It's a brand of sweetener: Xyla


TheCountessOlenska Fri 22-Feb-13 11:31:58

Oooh I like Xanthe - go with that OP.

Not Xyla.

alexpolismum Fri 22-Feb-13 12:18:28

xylo is Greek for 'wood', not an easy name to be saddled with.

Xanthe is nice (but I live too close to the city of that name to be able to choose it!)

Zaphiro Fri 22-Feb-13 16:28:26

Xanthe sounds posh. Xyla sounds like the parents already have 23 children, and like different initials for each.

Sounds wooden to me.
