    Question I think we agree on one!

    Ok, so we both like Kayla

    Problem is, I have a 2nd or 3rd cousin called Kayla. We are friends on FB, she's only about 14 & I do see them, but only every few years. Last names would be different. Do you think thats ok?

    I'm thinking a different spelling, but I really like it that way.
    Kaila? Kayla? Kaela? What do you think?

    Suggestions for middle names?



    I have no idea if I feel comfortable using the name. I'm thinking of pm'ing her & asking her & her mum what they think. Her mum & I get along really well. Our younger kids are similar ages & we always talk when we see each other, its just not often. I see her father more, but she's not with them very often.

    I have no idea! I've loved the name since the day she was born & I first heard it!

    If you love it, let your cousin & her mum know that you've always loved it and hope to be able to use it too.
    I think the distance in the family (2nd or 3rd cousin) would make it okay to use it.

    Lol, as good as it sounds, her name is Kayla-Jayd. Little bit too close, lol!
    I don't mind Kaela.

    I think they would be flattered

    What about with a 'h' on the end?

    Thanks guys
    I just pm'ed them. Told them I like it, but would spell it different. We'll see!

    Another question. Does it go with our other names?
    Jazmyne, Brianna, Jesse & Kaela (however we spell it)
    Does that sound right to you?

    I think Kayla goes really well with your children's names. I would be tempted to spell it Kayla, as there is no ambiguity about the pronunciation of the name.
    Kaela looks interesting, but I think it is a little ambiguous, some people might be inclined to pronounce it as Kay - el -a. Also Kaila looks good too, but again, may be pronounced ky-la.
    Anyway, that's just my 2 cents worth. It is great that you both agree on a name!

    Possible middle names:

    Kayla Mae
    Kayla Skye
    Kayla Eve
    Kayla Susannah
    Kayla Josephine
    I am liking a one or three syllable middle name with Kayla.


    Also, have you considered Clover? It is a beautiful name. There is an adorable little girl called Clover at our pre-school. I have only ever heard of 2 or 3.

    Good luck!

    Thanks
    I was thinking May for a middle name, its my mum & grandma's middle names. Jill is a possibility. I'm not a fan of the name, but it was my dad's mum's name & even though he didn't use it for any of us for the same reason (it really is a horrible name) I will think about it. I know pop would be very honoured.
    Skye is my name, & I'm not keen on using it

    My other kids first 2 names have 4 syllables all up (Jazmyne Louise, Brianna Rose & Jesse Andrew) & I wouldn't mind this one being the same, but not worried...

    I thought Clover a couple of times, but I know DH very well, & he wouldn't go for it.

    Would love a nice flower name though. To go with my other girls. But no idea. We could end up with anything, lol.

    ... i was about to come in and say the exact same thing, Kaela at first glance i thought you had a totally different name and i was somewhat confused until i realised you meant it the same pronounciation as Kayla.
    Kaila does look great but i think yeh again some might pronounce it wrong as Ash mentioned too.

    Why not spell it Kayla ... i can't see how that would be a problem when they are 2nd/3rd cousins, if anything how would their Mum's not be chuffed and see it as a great compliment

    I love the suggestion of Kayla Eve, sounds so pretty !!

    I feel the middle name would be better suited with a name ending in 'e'

    I can only think of Kayla Ariane & Kayla Trelise for now but i think a shorter middle name would look better, say less than 5 letters.

    Kayla May does sound lovely but are you sure about the look of it, that some might think you are looking to match the ' ay ' in both names, not that should really matter especially if you would really love to use May

    lol, I forgot your name was Skye!
    How about Jillian instead of Jill? Although that would mean 5 syllables.
    Kayla Jillian.
    Kayla May has a nice flow to it.

    mmm, nice flower names? You've got Jazmyne, Rose. How about Ferne (although that is more of a tree, lol)? or Ivy, Violet, Saffron, Lily, Lotus?
    I once heard of a woman called Aloe (as in Aloe Vera!).

    I like Violet
    Kayla Violet... hmmm. Not sure...

    I've thought of Jillian alot in the past, but I'm not too crash hot on it either, lol. Figure since I like it about the same may as well just use Jill.

    my nail tech is a Kayla and she spells her Cala.
    I think calling her that would be fine.

    I love Kayla. I personally prefer the spelling Kayla. I think it goes great with your other kids too. I was going to suggest Rose as a middle name but then I read that you already used that. I actually like Jillian & would have it on my list but DH doesn't like it. How about Paige, Hazel, Belle, Jane, June?
