Personal experiences with the name Kalila: | Edit

My Cousins Name is Kalila, named because her parents were so young when they had her, they had to give her up, but always wanted her to know that they loved her (because Kalila means dearly beloved). When she came searching for her parents (they are now married with two other kids, but never really recovered from giving her up) she said that she'd always loved her name, and has never wanted a nickname or anything else. Now that we're super close I call her Lila occasionally but she will always prefer to be fully Kalila
