Lila

night
ORIGIN: Arabic
POPULARITY: 453
Like other vintage names making a splash on baby name charts, Lila is sweet and charming, and in Arabic it's a shortened version of Leila. It means “night,” which accounts for its other meaning: “dark-haired beauty.” Remove a few letters from the front and back of Delilah and you can see how the Hebrew form of the name came about. For parents who like the name Lily but feel it’s blossomed a bit too much in popularity, Lila offers an elegant alternative. Spelling variations include Lilah, Lyla and Lylah.
