MargotBear Says:


My cousin is called Ela pronounced Ayla. She always gets called Ella and people always misspell her name. She is, however, a fluent Spanish speaker and the pronunciation of her name never causes confusion in that respect!

ElenaCroatia Says:


That's true (about it being used in Slavic countries), I'm Slavic and Ela is my nickname (my full name is Elena). It's also used as a stand-alone name.

I like this spelling better but at the same time it's practically like naming your daughter Elle because that's the pronoun "she" in French and Ela is the pronoun "She" in Portuguese. But it's not used in Lusophone (Portuguese) countries, it's used in Slavic countries.
