Meaning:blue crested bird
Kayla, Layla, Lula—girls’ names ending in “-la” are plentiful. Add one more to la-la land: Jayla, a less common name that’s just as pretty. It hit the naming charts in the mid-1990s, reaching its high point just after the turn of the century. It is most likely influenced by the popular “Jay” prefix that has resulted in Jayden, Jaycie, Jayda and other similar-sounding names. Another reason to favor Jayla is its “jay” meaning: blue-crested bird.
