When I was pregnant my grandmother wanted me to name my baby Queen Ester but I didnt want my baby being laughed at, so i searched and found Makayla, & Malika in Swahili they both mean princess. When she was born I still wanted the name to be perfect they called her Babygirl for 2 days because I was undecided i wrote down what i had wanted, and tried to see which sounded better. On a drugged up morining the Dr came in to get the birth certificate together, i leaned over and pointed at the name Makayla and I always loved Shyane' cause she acted so shy during ultrasounds so in the end Makayla Shyane' (short for shyangel) n I thought thats perfect. Also Makayla's Celtic meaning is Who is like God. she will lead, independent, spontaneous, energetic entertainer, social, creative bon vivant, introspective, analytical, and mysterious etc...

my daughters name is makayla, but spelled: macayla
we chosen to spell her name with a c instead of a k, because my name is cindel, but spelled: cyndel
so we thought it would be unique and different then most

I first heard this name over 40 years ago. I always said that when I had a little girl that would be her name. She is now in her early 30's. I was suprised when the Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman show came out and this name became very popular. We had a friend who's daughter named her twins Makayla and Makaya after my daughter.

My name is Makayla, although, I go by Kayla. It's a very beautiful name. My brother named me because my mom didn't want to pick a girl name and end up with another boy like she did with my brother Randy. I love my name, but I'm planning on changing it to just plan Kayla. In Irish, it also means Magical.

It is very wierd to read that some else had a dream about a little girl named makayla calling her mommy.
I had that very dream just last night 6/5/09. I was just blown away to see that just minutes ago. I had dream of a little vivacious girl who is love by everyone calling me mommy how strange is that, someone else has the same dream. I wonder what it means?

My name is Makayla, and i don't really like it because theres so many people with the same name, mostly kids younger than me. I think it wasn't common when my parents named me it, but it is now. I would like it so much better if it was spelled Micaela or Michaela..
i LOVE this name

I know a girl called Makayla and she is so sweet. She will always acknowledge you politely and is a great friend. Anyway, I think this is a great name with a nice ring to it.
