Baby girl is due any day, and I still have no name for her. Thinking of Ayla, Kaylee, or Ella. Any insight would be appreciated!😘

Ella's are everyhere-very populat at the moment

Not keen on Ayla

Prefer spelling Kayleigh ....but each to their own

Ayla might cause problems with spelling and pronunciation - ay- la or eye-la. I love Kaylee.

Ella - beautiful name and suits a baby, teenager adult and old lady!

I think I prefer Ella. Would Isla suit?

how about something else altogether? Out of Isla, Kayleigh and Ella, I'd choose Ella, but it's very overused atm. Apologies for being picky but Ayla and Kaylee are awful spellings too

Isla and Kayleigh are spelled like that. Both nice, as is Ella.

Ella.
Kaylee makes me think of women my age (early 30s) who I went to school with. It feels old fashioned

@HasItStoppedWayneing No on Isla as it is a friend's baby's name.

How about a longer name that can be shortened to Ella? That gives you and her a choice.

Arabella
Isabella
Bella
Gabriella

I’m never sure if it’s Ay-la or Eye-la and I’ve seen the name a lot recently.

What is it about Kaylee that you like? It seems a bit made up and out of place compared to the other two.

Catnary · 07/02/2023 09:29

Calli or Callie is nice. I have a colleague with that name.

Have you looked at any other Scottish place names if you like Isla but can't use it because of your friend, Brae, Iona, Ailsa for example
