    I prefer Leila, which is also my mother's name. She was raised with it being pronounced "LEE-la" by her family and most strangers. She says the Eric Clapton song was a sea change and ever since then she's just let people say "LAY-la" because it's easier... I think it is a beautiful name and wish it didn't clash with my dh's surname. We will use it as a middle name though (Leila spelling).

    Layla!!!! This will not get mispronounced which is a big worry of mine. Plus, I naturally spell it this way .

    I voted for Layla, I think it's the most intuitive for pronunciation and spelling.
    I'm going with Lila for the Lila vs Lyla debate.
