Leila is a girl's name of Arabic origin, meaning “night.” 19th-century poet Lord Byron is credited with bringing this variation of Layla to English-speaking countries through his acclaimed work, Don Juan. Leila emanates an aura of mysticism and otherworldliness, and has become a popular choice for those born at night. After dipping on the baby name charts in the 1980s and '90s, Leila has fortunately climbed back into the hearts and minds of parents.
