    Laila for the Layla/Leila/Laila and Lila for the Lyla vs Lila. I like those spellings the most.

    Layla and Lila are my preferences.

    (Leila looks like it should be prononunced LEE-luh, not LAY-luh)

    I prefer the Leila spelling, but if you are pronouncing it how I think you are, then Layla seems more intuitive.

    Renrose, your research was fabulous.
