    Yes. To me, Leila is so much prettier than Layla, which just looks like a trendy and phonetic spelling of the name.

    I prefer Leila. I think it looks much more elegant than Layla. To me, Layla is like turning Victoria into Viktorya, if you understand what I mean.

    I like the Leila spelling. Laila looks made up to me, and Layla suddenly looks trendy, but Leila is a name that's been used since the 19th century in America. But either of those spellings has a great history behind it.

    Leila/Layla is a name I've loved since I was a little girl, but lately I've been having second thoughts because it's become so popular. This thread has actually reminded me of all the reasons I loved it in the first place. I'm swooning!
