  1. Leila means night beauty or daughter of the night and she was born at night. Also choose this spelling because Lei in Hawaiian has very beautiful meaning

  2. I knew that I wanted an L name, and have always liked the name Layla, just not the spelling. The meaning behind it, although it varies, is very beautiful too: dark haired beauty, nocturnal, born at night etc. All of these things rang true for my little girl. We settled on spelling it with an LEI as a nod to our local roots, being born and raised in Hawaii.

  3. I chose the name Leila because it is just as she is a little night beauty avani is her middle and it means earth in Hindi so in short her name means night beauty of earth …she’s been such an easy and sweet baby so peaceful ..

  4. Leila it’s like the name Layla but we spelled differently to be different. At first I spelled it Laila but her dad’s middle name is Lee so I decided to spell it Leila. It’s a beautiful name. And she is amazing
