Laila

night beauty
ORIGIN: Arabic
POPULARITY: 376
A lyrical name meaning “night beauty” with Arabic roots, Laila could be spelled a number of different ways, such as Layla, Leila, Leyla and Leilah. Consider the name for your daughter, especially if she is born at night or has dark hair, as the Arabs did. (But that doesn’t mean daytime-born, light-haired babies aren’t welcome to the name as well.) The name has been around since the 19th century, but it first hit the US charts in 2000. Some people were onto it even earlier: In 1977, boxing legend Muhammad Ali thought the name was a knockout and chose it for his daughter, who also became a professional boxer.
