Meaning:One eye, blind; Mountain, daughter of the mountain
Shyla is a feminine name inspired by the Irish Sheila, whose ancestry lies in the Greek Cecilia, meaning “one eye” or “blind.” Shyla may also be a form of Indian Shaila, linked to Shailaputri—a manifestation of goddess Parvati. The daughter of King Himavat, the guardian of the Himalayas and personification of the mountains, Shyla inherits the meaning “mountain” or “daughter of the mountain.” This profound, earthy name may invigorate baby Shyla to overcome every mountain with stability and insight at the helm.
