additionalWarning: Strangers will sing the Eric Clapton song to your child upon learning her name. For her entire life. But if you can get past that, it’s a beautiful, smooth, and obviously romantic (we’d go as far as to say slightly sexy) name that’s shooting up the charts. Interestingly, the name didn’t really peak at all when the song first came out in the early ‘70s, though it did hit the charts for the first time. After a few years way down in the rankings (it disappeared until the early ‘90s), it started slowly moving back up the charts until just a few years ago, when it really rocketed up -- it went from number 100 in ’06 to 55 in ’08. Some thanks likely goes to the rhyming (but way different feeling) Kayla.

additionalMeans "night" in Arabic. This was the name of the object of romantic poems written by the 7th-century poet known as Qays. The story of Qays and Layla became a popular romance in medieval Arabia and Persia. The name became used in the English-speaking world after the 1970 release of the song 'Layla' by Derek and the Dominos, the title of which was inspired by the medieval story.


Definition funny of Layla:

urbanA fun loving girl who knows how to have fun. She has many friends with a lot of inside jokes. She generally has brown hair, brown eyes, and crazy dance moves. She knows how to make anyone laugh and laughs all the time herself. She has many friends who get her sense of style and sexy skills.

urbanOh that girl is such a Layla

urbanA song by Eric Clapton.

urbanThis is a girl who is most beautiful and drop dead gorgeous, she is wanted by all men yet, unnatainable because she is so daring, free-spirited, and independent. She rarely falls in love, however when she does she is THE best. She has long black hair and is extremely skinny. She has been to the edge and back and came back without a crack. Do NOT ever get on her bad side. She is a fighter but will think of what she loves while fighting. No one will ever really know her, for she truly does not know herself. She is poetic and says everything with wisdom. Show her cruelty and receive cruelty, show her kindness and receive kindness. Compare her to a black diamond, or onyx gem. She is complex, comes from both heaven and hell, her emotions are difficult to read, and her surface is hard and flawless. She is pale skinned but capable of dark things. She would rather be the moon that shines down on you in your darkest hour than the sun that simply brightens a day. Eric Clapton wrote a song about Layla having all the guys fall to their knees for her and her walking by looking only ahead towards the future. She is always right with a sharp and intelligent mind. She is confident and sexy. She loves cold weather but also enjoys swimming in the water.

urbanThat girl walks with such confidence of a Layla.
