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

Sounds like the start of xylophone.

my daughter is Xanthe and everyone loves it. I always have positive comments.

Sorry but I think it's horrible - and Xyla would have to spend the rest of their life telling people how to spell it or how to pronounce it.

It sounds like an additive not a girls name.

MidnightMasquerader Sat 23-Feb-13 08:08:51

Put it this way... it doesn't sound posh.

meditrina Sat 23-Feb-13 06:19:24

I thought woody too (xylem)

mathanxiety Sat 23-Feb-13 05:58:02

Sounds like a laxative to me.

PixelAteMyFace Sat 23-Feb-13 00:24:05

Sounds wooden to me.

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

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!)

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

Oooh I like Xanthe - go with that OP.

Not Xyla.

It's a brand of sweetener: Xyla


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

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

MolotovCocktail Fri 22-Feb-13 11:17:37

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.

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

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

Sounds like a food additive not a person. Sorry.

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.

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

Kyla is a beautiful name.

jellybeans Fri 22-Feb-13 10:25:21

Not keen. I do like Myla and Kyla though.

FannyPriceless Fri 22-Feb-13 09:57:21

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.

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

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

It's awful.

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

I think it sounds made up, not posh.
