Not crazy about it but it could be worse. Fairly easy to pronounce. Don't like Kaylie at all esp. since it sounds like Keili Keili lama azavtani.


Just switch to "Keili ata ve-odecha, elokai aromemecha".

That makes sense - the one I know is Satmar


Kylu is a nickname for Kyla. Like Bylu for Baila. Chanchu for Chancha. Adding the kumetz oo instead of a yid is a Hungarian style of a nickname but there are chassidishe Kylees too.

It's not very common in the chassidishe world although it is not unheard of.

According to Kveller it means a laurel or crown in Yiddish.
I know 2 Chassidish Kaylas and both pronounced Kayla. One is Kaylee and she lives in Monroe. The other one is Kayla and grew up in Wmsbg. I know there are Kaylas in our Heimishe style school as well but I don't personally know them.
Ironically, the Kylie I know of, pronounced in Chassidish accent, is Kylie Jenner. Very Happy

Kayla comes from the shoresh keleilah, which means a crown.
It's the yiddish version of atara.

It is a very popular name right now in both yeshivish and modern orthodox circles.

Kaila is even a fairly popular name in secular and non-Jewish circles.

It's a lovely name. I had a dear friend named Kaila who passed away last year. She was the happiest and most inspirational woman despite severe chronic illness. Hearing her name makes me think of her and smile.

It's my dd's name. I love it. We're not chassidish, live in Lakewood, part of the yeshiva community and I know other Kailas.

The only thing I don't like about it is that the only nickname I could think of was Kailee and I don't like that name. I'm a big nickname girl, all my other kids are called by nicknames and so I almost didn't name her Kaila, but I'm so happy I did. It's a really pretty, easy name.

Love it. Love the sound, love most of the nicknames. That only reason it wouldn't be on my baby name list is because we prefer Israeli Hebrew names to Yiddish ones and there's no one in my family to name after with that name. But I think it's a beautiful name.

My friends named their daughter Kayla because it comes from "kal" - easy.
There are so many opinions...

So interesting to hear that its chasidish. My dd has two names, one of which is Kaila and my dh didn't want me to call her that because its not chasidish sounding(we're chasidish). So we use her other name. But her legal name is Kaila because I love it!

Kylie Jenner is pronounced with I sound as in I went to the store. KIlee.

chasidish Kylie would be prounounced Keilee with the first part sounding like the I in Ice. very different.
