    I found the name Aella whilst browsing BtN and thought it was interesting. It is a girls name from Greek mythology meaning ‘whirlwind’ and was the name of an Amazon warrior. From what I can find, it is pronounced AY-la, though I thought it might be ay-EL-a at first. How would you pronounce it/what would you say is the correct prnunciation? What do you think of the name?

    For interest’s sake, the similar Ælla was the name of a 9th century Northumbrian king.

    I came across a baby name troll who claimed to have a Michaela nn Aela (AY-lah) once, and I thought that was intriguing. I think the spelling was rather odd, too, like Mikaela or something. But still, I rather like it as a name. It has a pretty sound, and the pronunciation seems more intuitive to me than Ayla (which I can never tell if it’s supposed to be AY-lah or EYE-lah…). I could easily see either prn., though–AY-lah or ay-ELL-ah.

    Interesting. My first guess seeing it written would be ay-ella. Either pronunciation makes sense though. It’s pretty.

    I’d say Ay-la, but that’s just because I really love ‘ae’ together, and most of the time I come across it, it’s an ay sound.

    I think the same as twosapphires. It’s not really my style though.

    If it’s Greek, I would guess Ay-la is the correct pronunciation. That was my guess first seeing it too. Or maybe kind of like Ayl-luh? Ay-ella sounds too complicated to be worth it…
    I like Ayla a lot, I think it’s really pretty and modern-sounding, but I think I like that spelling way more. Aella kind of looks like a typo for Bella.

    I agree with TheWishingStar, too. I think I like Ayla better, if that’s a name that appeals to you.
