Hi. We are trying to choose a girl's name (fewer than two syllables) that ends in A.What is your honest opinion of Isla? I liked it a lot but then a family member said they didn't like it and now I'm confused.Hubby isn't a fan of Ava or Ella and I don't want a K name.Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.... Any variations on names okay but must end in A.Thanks so much x

We have an Isla.  I think it is beautiful.  You do get some mispronounciation of the name sometimes when people are reading it for the first time.   Suprisingly we have run across alot more Isla than we thought would be out there.

Fewer than 2 syllables means one syllable - given Isla itself has 2 syllables, I am assuming you mean short 2 syllable names.

I quite like Isla.

There are many many short 2 syllable girls names ending in 'a'

I few I really like

Dayna
Jenna
Taya
Kayla
Tara
Shona
Mia (very popular atm though)
Anna
Jayda
Laura

I'm not a fan if Isla. I think it's a bit of a celeb fad name and does nothing for me.

I love:
Greta
Helena
Sophia
Alana
Alexandra
Erica

I'm impartial to Isla, but then I haven't seen many children with that name, maybe that's just where I am though.

How about:
Asha or Peta (2 I haven't yet seen mentioned).

I think Isla is beautiful - but only with the Spanish pronunciation (Iss-la).  Eye-la doesn't do it for me at all.

We have Laura and Eliza.  wub.gif
