Grew up listening to Twila Paris :) Named one of my Barbies after her. Still like the name. But not for one of my future babes...hubby would have a fit!

Lovely. Besides just being unusual, it has a very uncommon sound- very few other names sound similar. And yet it is still beautiful, wearable, and easy to spell! Definitely one to consider.

I first heard Twila on the new POP show Schitt$ Creek. It reminds me of Twilight, a moon lit summer night, and a cool breeze. Very cute and different.

I like this name but it makes me think of twilight which reminds of both the book/movie series and the my little pony series.
