What does the name "Kayla" mean? We like the name, but do not know what it means.
|Answer: This is what I found.|
- a Yiddish form of Kelila, a Hebrew name meaning "crown of laurel", and symbolically "perfection". Kelila is also a female form of the name Kalil, meaning "complete, whole, perfect".
- a Yiddish form of the names Cecilia and Celia.
- a Yiddish pet form of the name Karolina
- a Yiddish form of "geile", meaning "happy, mischievous, vivacious, playful..." in Old German.
- a variation of the name Gella, meaning "fair haired" in Yiddish
- a Yiddish form of "geila", meaning "French, Gaul" in Old German.
- a Yiddish pet form of the name Michaela
- in Hebrew, "kalah" means "bride, fiancee". So it could be a Yiddish form of "kalah".
