Shila is a feminine Indian and Sanskrit name and respelling of Sheela, with the warm meaning of “gentle” or “expressing.” An admirable quality to have, it can be easy to forget how being kind to ourselves and the world can go a very long way. Luckily baby Shila will always be reminded that tenderness is a noble virtue to embody. As a Hebrew name, Shila means “rock” or “thunder.” This elemental energy lends a lofty title to the baby whose love is as solid as a rock and whose joyful laughter erupts like thunder. Shila may also be a respelling of the Irish Síle, a name ultimately Latin and Welsh in origin derived from Cecilia, meaning “blind.” Prepare to be blinded by baby’s beauty—with the name Shila beautifully adding to baby’s charm.
