Meaning:helper to the priest
Camilla is an Italian girl's name that means "helper to the priest." It comes from camillus, a term used to refer to a young person serving as an acolyte in church in Ancient Roman religions. This isn't an old-fashioned name by any means, though—you'll find the name in the charts, with Camilla Cabello, and on the runway, with supermodel Camila Alves. The name can be spelled in various ways, with options including Camila and Kamila. Kamila, an Arabic name, means "perfect," and is worn perfectly by Kamilah Al-Jamil in The Good Place, an overachieving multi-hyphenate loved the world over.
