Origin

Meaning

A luminous and beautiful name for a baby girl, Jayla is formed of the quite ancient name Jay, which comes from John (meaning 'grace') and the feminine ending 'la'. Strong and sweet at once, this name is one of our wonderful newer names and it's perhaps that newness that makes it feel so fresh and modern. Contemporary it may be, in ratings Jayla is still considered refined and particularly graceful.
