This name appears in the episode "The Baby Shower" in the first season of the TV series "Sex and the City". Shayla is the name which, as she has told all her friends, Charlotte York has always planned to name her future baby girl -- she says she invented it when she was eleven. In the episode, the name is "stolen" by a pregnant former friend who claims not to remember Charlotte having told her the story. The situation is made more poignant by the fact that Charlotte would like to be married with children but doesn't even have a boyfriend.
