Your opinion on Laila...
After talking to a friend who is expecting a baby girl in July, she asked me about names that I like and I mentioned the name Laila. She thought it was nice and would consider adding it to her list but thinks it is more of a child's name rather than an adult and couldn't think of any middle names that go with it.
What do you think about the name Laila? And what middle names do you think 'go with' Laila?
I much prefer Leila or Layla, but Laila is just as pretty.
Some middle name suggestions:
Assuming you're pronouncing it "Lay-luh" not "Lie-luh" (I saw Lila spelt this way once and it confused the bejeezus out of me), then:
I was just thinking about how Laila / Leila / Layla, etc is probably one of the few names that I really like in all spellings. I'm pretty sure that I saw a Bollywood movie not too long ago where the lead female role was named Laila. Maybe suggest that she watch some to see it as a grown-up name.
I'd like to second the suggestions of Laila Rosemary, Laila Jane, and Laila Josephine --- they were all ideas that I had before reading all of the posts and I see that they've been suggested already.

There was a whole thread about Laila the other day :)
It would pronounced Lay-Luh/Lah really like the suggestions of:
sorry I just dislike this name. I knew a girl with this name, spelled Layla, and all the boys would say 'I want to lay ya'
I love it but I like it much better spelled Leila or Layla. It kind of blends in with all the double 'L' names going around these days but I still love it. Leila Clementine
I prefer the Leila spelling. The daughter of boxer Mohammed Ali is named Laila. I think it's a name that works well on women of all ages.
