Other Origin(s):Hebrew, Irish, Scottish
Meaning:Who is like God?; Son of Aodh; Fire
Mckayla is a girl’s name of American origin. As a derivative of the Hebrew Michaela—a variant of the masculine given name Michael—Mckayla means “who is like God?” This makes it an excellent choice if you hope to raise baby in faith. For a more incendiary meaning, Mckayla could also be viewed as an elaboration of the Scottish and Irish last name McKay, meaning “son of Aodh” or “fire.” With this name lighting the way, baby Mckayla will certainly know how to blaze their own path in life.
