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 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.
