    I personally like the spelling of this name, but a lot have told me, that people will end up spelling it wrong,

    what spelling of the name Lyla would you use?

    I can't see how people will spell Lyla wrong?
    I like that name and thats the way I'd spell it. :shrug:
    The only other way of spelling it i could think of is Lila or Liela?

    Lilah, possibly. That's probably how I'd spell it.

    Leila is totally different, but I love it! I don't know of it's original descent, but I know a lot of Finns named Leila and I think it's a beautiful name.

    I like Lila best.. spell it the way you want hun. No matter what name you pick, someone will spell it wrong- with Elyse I get Elise, Alice, Alyse... with Natasha (my own name lol) I get lots of Natashia and from my eastern European friends I get things like Natasja and stuff? I wish my name was spelled Natasja, it's way more interesting! lol

    How are you going to pronounce it???

    My daughter is Layla... i know people have the same name pronounced the same and spelt differently.... Laylah, laila, laylia, lailah all different ways..

    it is up to you how you want to spell it... What middle name are you picking?

    My daughter is Lylah

    But you can spell it- Lyla, lila, lilah, or however you want

    Ps- everyone gets it wrong! They always call Lylah- LAYLA. I get it at least 3 times a week. lol
