Comments and insights on the name Rayla: | Edit

My daughter's name is Rayla Marie, she is three years old, and up until now her dad kept suggesting that me made it up, he says that Ray was for ray of light, and la was because she would love to sing. We've received many compliments and I would have to say that she likes her name too:)

Personal experiences with the name Rayla: | Edit

Rayla is my name and I have not met anyone who has it. Frankly I like that I am unique :o)
My mother came up with it after she realized I wasn't a boy. I was supposed to be named after my 2 grandfathers (Raymond being one of them - my second grandfather got his name as part of my middle name)

My middle name is Rayla, though i wish it was my first. ;) I like that it isn't common unlike my name, Chloe. If I ever have a daughter I'll name her Raylie or Rayla
