Lila is one of the names with a double l sound -- Lila, Lola, and Lily -- that have recently caught on, particularly among the celebrity set (model Kate Moss and comedian Chris Rock both have little Lilas), and we must admit we love -- make that love love love -- them all. Sultry and forceful, Lila has a slight Near Eastern tinge. In Hinduism, Lila is a conceptualism of the universe as a playground of the gods
The only caveat: As a group, the double l names have gotten so stylish so quickly that they're verging on full-blown trendiness and tend to blend into one another. So while there may not be another little girl named Lila in town, between those named Lillian, Lily, Layla and so on, you may feel there's a double l overload.
