While I don't particularly love any form of this name the Mikayla spelling would have to be my favourite. I always struggle with the Michaela spelling, and Mackayla or Mckayla just looks wrong and miss spelt.

This is my name! I don't use Kayla or Micky, I just use the full name. I don't mind the spelling at all! My parents though that "Michaela" would sound to masculine, because on paper it looks like the male name "Michael" with an a. Still a beautiful name, though!
