I really liked it 18 years years ago, but I went with Kalista.

Kyla Fountain Says:


Hi. My name is Kyla. I don’t suggest naming your child Kyla. She might not meet a lot of everyday people with the same name, but in the media too many people have the name. It’s not very unique or fun and people get your name wrong WAY more often than right.
Also, going along with too many people have this name. It can be a bad name for a baby that is going to be a Gemini.

ConcordNames Says:


Kylah is actually the correct Connacht Irish pronunciation (Anglicized spelling) of Cadhla, which means "beautiful."
