Meaning:fiery; who is like God
Mckayla is a girl’s name of American and Latin origins. As a derivative of the Latin Michaela—itself a variant of the masculine given name Michael—Mckayla means “who is like God.” This makes it a great choice for religious parents hoping to raise baby in faith. For a more incendiary meaning, Mckayla is also a variant of the American McKay, meaning “fiery.” With this name lighting the way, baby Mckay will certainly know how to blaze her own path in life.
