WDYT of Jaela?

My gf just had a dd and named her Jaela and I thought it was cute.  I haven't seen it on here and thought it was cute and might give someone a name option...

Re: WDYT of Jaela?

  • Is it pronounced like Jay-la? I went to college with a Jayla.

  • There was a girl on ANTM a few seasons ago named Jayla. Is it pronounced the same way? It's unusual without being wacky... I think it's pretty. :)

  • Yup, they pronounce it just like Jayla.  I don't think they had a reason for spelling it with and e.  Must have just liked it.

  • That I wouldn't know how to pronounce it by just looking at the name ... "Hi-ella" or "Jay-la" or "Hi-la?"
  • NMS but not a bad name.

    I never would have thought of that. It just sounds like Kayla with a "J" to me.

  • sounds made up
  • It is made up. It's a mix of Jada and Kayla.

    I would never use it but it's not horrible. Spell it Jayla, if you must, though.

  • another made up name


  • All I can think of is "jail bait."  HUGE no on this one...

  • Not a fan at all. Especially that spelling. It just looks ugly to me.

    This. I am a Spanish speaker who lives in a predominantly Spanish-speaking neighborhood in NY. I would automatically assume the "h" sound before anything else.

  • I don't like it at all.
  • i like the name but hate the way its spelled.

  • I like the name, I think it's cute.

    Thanks for posting it, considering you were only doing so to give people the option. But if you were ever considering naming your child the same name as your gf's DD, now you have plenty of advice about it! LOL

    Jayla isn't that bad, but Jaela is ridic.

    I hate when people smoosh two names together to make a new one.
