cloud or champion
How fun would it be to have the name of an ancient Egyptian princess? That’s one assumption about Nyla’s backstory. Another is that the name is Arabic and derived from Na’ila (“champion”). Popular with African-American parents, the name has been on the baby-name charts consistently since the turn of the century. It’s simple (pronounced NYE-la) with a positive meaning—a great confidence builder for any girl lucky enough to get this name.
