ORIGIN: Arabic
POPULARITY: 488
Lord Byron, a 19th-century poet, is credited with bringing this variation of Layla to English-speaking countries through his acclaimed work, “Don Juan,” which featured a young character named Leila. In Arabic, Leila means “beauty,” but the name has come to mean “night beauty” to describe a dark-skinned baby or one born at night. After taking a dive on the baby-name charts in the 1980s and 1990s, Leila has climbed back into the hearts and minds of parents.
