Ditto to both.

Definitely spell it Isla.

Yeah, I say Isla like "EYE-luh" and Ayla like "A-luh".

Isla is gorgeous, while most other spellings are a mess. Ayla is AY-luh to me, rhymes with day.

It can also be spelled Islay (correctly pronounced eye-luh like Isla) but I would think most would mispronounce it. There is an Islay in our family and it is the name of a Scottish island. Just wanted to add that!

Beautiful name!

Isla. Love it. It's on our short list if #5 is a girl.
