This will sound bizarre but that Dr Phil Family the daughter named her kid Layla. That puts it off my list right away. I am in love with Callie. Isla is hard for me to say.

I love Callie as a name, but find it too close to Keller IMO ... So I went for Brooklin, which I love almost as much

I didn't think about that when I just voted for Callie! lol Brooklin would have been my second choice though.

I voted Callie, too, but if it's too close to Keller then Brooklin is my 2nd vote!

How do you pronounce it? It's supposed to be pronounced "Eye-Lah", like the word Island, so the "S" is silent. But some people pronounce it "Eyes-lah" or "Eez-lah" which isn't the correct way and it's a bit hard to pronounce.

I agree Callie is cute, but too close to Keller. I also see Callie on a child, but not sure if it's "grown up" enough. I think Layla and Isla are both sweet. Brooklyn isn't really my style.

Yep - it's Eye-lah. And Julia - I love the name Callie, but I also agree with you kinda...I told Eric that I might have to name her Caroline and call her Callie because that way she can take either name as an adult. He likes Layla too because of the Clapton song, and Brooklin I like because it's the town in Maine where we got married...but DH has a cousin named Brooke too, so that's tricky. Ahh...I should have triplets or something!! LOL

I chose Brooklin, but I'm partial to it since it's my niece's name (though her's is spelled Brooklyn).

I love Layla. The Eric Clapton song made me love it.

I'm not a fan of Brooklin, just not my style... Callie is adorable, but I agree with the grown up version.. Although we considered Callie for Calliope.

Isla, I love. But I'm one of those crazy people who don't like names once they become super popular, and there's a whole bunch of women tossing around Isla (and one confirmed) for their babies.

Good luck, whatever you pick will be wonderful!

Yeah I pronounce it that way but its just hard for me to say. I can't explain it. I love Caroline and then Callie but that is just me. I am not a fan of Brooklyn. Its super popular and never been my style. lmao Triplets would solve the problem, but I think it may be to late in the game for that!

I am glad I am not the only one having naming issues. I didn't vote, but I like Caroline to Callie and I like Layla( it is one of the names on my list)

I love Callie and Keller. Isla would be my second choice. What puts me off of Layla (and I love the song) is that he's singing it to George Harrison's wife, who he stole, lol!
