    Oh I like Mila, I’m sorry to hear people you know are having difficulty with it.

    I’d be more concerned that people would respond ‘after the actress?’ Although I’d just reply ‘not after anyone, we just like the name.’ 

    So I say stick with Mila if it’s your favourite. My second favourite on your list is Lila. (Odd, those two names don’t rhyme and they’re spelt so similarly.)

    Poor Mila, lol. I’d have thought she’d be more popular! 

    I completely understand the whole ‘not wanting her to be in class with loads of other girls with the same name’ I was exactly like that. I think something that boosted those thoughts was reading on one lady’s son was one of three ‘Jayden’s in his class and it was a while before he understood that his first name wasn’t ‘Jaydencee’ (He was ‘Jayden C.’ and the other boys’ names were something like Jayden S. and Jayden F.)

    happyhealthy87:  I think Mila is a lovely name! My friends daughter (also our flower girl) is named Mila and she’s had no issues with pronunciation whatsoever so I doubt that you’d have too many issues with that.

    I like Mila, but I would see it and prounounce it mill-a. Even knowing the actress. She will be correcting people. Layla is always a dog name in my mind. I get that there are a lot of kids with that name, but I only have known 4 legged children with that name. That is why we named our dog something that isn’t a human name 🙂

    I like Lexa or Lexie. Alexa and Alexandra are very professonal and she could also go by Ali, Alex, Ann, Andrea, and Andy when she grew up.

    Two other names– Lillia (lily-ah) and Lydia. Both have the sound you like, but are more traditional. They are probably less common now, but still common enough people can pronounce them.

    I knew someone named Mila, but she pronounced it My-la, so I’m never sure how to pronounce it when I see it. If it’s your favorite, I think you should still use it.

    I like Mila (Mee-la), but when I FIRST saw it, I forgot about Mila Kunis and thought it was pronounced  (M-eye-la), with a long “I” like Lila. As beautiful as that name is, I do think she will have to explain to teachers and others throughout her life that he name is not M-eye-la.

    Mila, hands down.  I love that name.  I think it’s worth the trouble of occasional mispronunciations!

    I like Mila, but I am always surprised when people name their kid Mila instead of the full name Ludmila (which means love). It’s kind of like naming your kid Joey instead of Joseph. Mila is a Slavic nickname. But a very pretty one!

    All your name choices are very trendy right now (especially Layla/Lila) so be prepared for there to be several girls each year in your daughter’s class with the same name. Not saying that’s a bad thing, just something to consider if that bothers you– but ultimately, of course, you should pick the name you and your partner like best!

    happyhealthy87:  I like Lila and Alexandra.  I have never been a fan of Mila and everytime I hear the name Layla, I think of the Eric Clapton song, and well, I just can’t go there.
