My husband and I had already decided on the name savahnna until we came across the name jayla while watching Americas net top model, and one of the models name was jayla. My husbands name is Jacob and I thought it was cute for my daughters name to be similar to her fathers. Love this name so glad we came across it.

I fell in love with the name watchin top model!!!!

I wasnt even pregnant yet when I fell in love with the name Jayla. I was watching America's Next Top Model, Cycle 5 and one of the contestants names was Jayla spelled, this exact way. I thought the name was so pretty and told my girlfriend, who was preggers at the time to name her unborn baby that if it was a girl. But she had a boy. Years later I find out I was pregnant and new that if it was a girl her name would be Jaila Marie or Jaila Elisabeth, that's how I wanted to spell it to be different but her father did not like it, so we spelled it Jayla...Our beautifull Jayla Marie came into the world on December 20, 2007. She is true a very special little girl.

When I was pregnant with my daughter I loved the name but didnt really like the spelling, I changed it to Jaela, I think it looks prettier. Her middle name is Rayne and I get alot of compliments on her name b/c it sounds so pretty together.
