Personal experiences with the name Twila: | Edit

I did not like my name when I was young as few could remember, spell or even pronounce it, however as I grew older it fit well with my artistic side. It is also a name that needs no last name and is very sophisitcated.

The name Twila has always been an opening to a start of a conversation. I have loved the name from a small child to date. No one really has my name and it is so unique. People always remember you because of your name.

Meanings and history of the name Twila: | Edit

The name Twila means light in dark places. I have been told that it means "morning star." I have also heard it could be Indian name-- HOWEVER, research on the internet reveal Twyla is supposed to be an English name that means " double woven." So, this is a mystery. My name has been spelled Twila, Twilla, and Twyla. When you look up Twyla, it will also tell you that the other two are variations.

I take the "doubly woven" to mean strong. I have also read that it is an African-American name...

In Zulu- thwala means "to carry". My parents took that meaning and gave me the middle name joy, therefore Twila Joy means "To carry Joy".
