US Popularity:19834
Meaning:Small brook
Although the girl's name Rilla is traditionally a nickname, it packs a serious punch on its own! Meaning "small brook" in German, Rilla was once a common short form for names like Aurilla, Cirilla, and Marilla. You may recognize that last one from the classic Anne of Green Gables book series. As Anne's youngest daughter, Bertha Marilla was known for her stubborn and determined nature. She also despised being called a little girl, so you can expect your darling Rilla to be super mature for their age!
