Middle name Grey

I think I prefer Layla. Chloe's a bit 90s for my taste.
I'd spell it Leila though. Leila Grey is pretty and delicate.

I really like Chloe. But it is a bit 90ies/Kardashians...

Layla is a perfectly fine name smile But I personally also prefer Leila. Or Lila and Laleh (yes, 3 totally different names. But the vocals and the L do mean there is a certain amount of similarity. At least imo...)

I also prefer Layla, never liked the name Chloe though not sure why.

Agree that Leila looks nicer.

I like them both, but probably slightly prefer Layla (I'd definitely spell it like that, very Clapton-esque!)

Chloe is very 2000
Super common now

I don't know any Layla's

I love both. Which is unusual on these threads!!

Layla definitely

although, agree with other spelling of Leila ...looks more 'classy' imo

I prefer Chloe.

Layla makes me think the parents are trying to be "exotic"

Both lovely. I think Layla just has the edge slightly, though

Usernamewithnodigits Fri 17-Mar-17 21:57:21 have a different name in the thread you staryed 2 hours ago confused

mummytobemaybe Fri 17-Mar-17 22:02:19

Yes I only started my account tonight and that was the name they gave me but I have changed it now smile

Usernamewithnodigits and your point is? hmm

Lay off the OP. This is baby names FFS, not AIBU.

Who cares if the OP name changes? It makes zero difference to the discussion of names.

No point in us contributing if we're not getting the whole picture!

Layla/ laila/ Leila is much less common - not in a snobby way as in you won't meet many other Lailas

Dinosaursdontgrowontrees Fri 17-Mar-17 22:10:14

My dd has 3 Layla's in her nursery class (22 children) I also know of 2 other little Layla's.
so I would probably go for Chloe.

Layla :-)

I truly hate the name Layla/Leila so definitely Chloe. The kindest, most wonderful person I know is a Chloe so I am possibly a little biased.
