FOR REAL: Kayla is a modern name, most likely coined in the 20th century. In modern times, however, it is most likely a blend of kay and the ending -la. It may represent an altered form of Kayley (an Irish surname) as well. Kaila is also a Yiddish name; a form of Kelila, which means 'crown of laurel' in Hebrew, though that origin is less likely to have spread to the general English-speaking populace than the former.
