Personal experiences with the name Karla: | Edit

My mom's name is Karla with a "K" and she is the most fantastic person I have ever met. She is 57 and just went back to school to get a nursing degree after raising 5 kids. She recently told me that she feels the same as when she was 20. She is the most caring, hard working, and ambitious person I know. I love the name Karla and I think the name would sound great now for a little girl.

My grandma's name is Karla. She says it is often misspelled like "Carla" but she is my role model. She is such a strong woman for the family.
