Jamila(yah-MEE-luh): Right now I am really hot for "Y" names, especially names spelled with a J but pronounced like Y. This is an Arabic name meaning "beautiful." It is used in Kiswahili, Urdu, Egyptian, and lots of other languages. It can also be spelled Yamila; the Portuguese like this form. Unusual and exotic. Mila (MEE-luh) would make a really cool nickname.
In Arabic, Jamila means "beautiful" and is a feminine form of Jamil.
