I regularly watch after a little girl named Camila and she is very playful and full of energy. It did take me a while to be able to pronounce her name, but sometimes if I just can't say it right I just call her "Mia" or "Mila"
My best friend when I was little was named Camila. Back then (I was like four) I couldn't pronounce her name. I'd call her Cam-ill-a instead of Cam-eel-a. She always corrected me, and I'm pretty sure she got super annoyed with me because I also couldn't pronounce her last name with my young tongue learning the alphabet. I started calling her Cami as in Cam-E.
