If pronounced Lay-lawn-E then I think it's cute ... a bit of a tongue twister though.

I think it's pretty but this makes me immediately think of Hawaii so unless there was something meaningful to you about Hawaii or you have that lineage in your family, I find it to be a little awkward. I'd go with Leyla, Leila, Lani, Layla or Lorelei as a more mainstream version.

Showing my geekdom, but in the recent Star Trek books, this was the woman who finally got Captain Kirk to settle down with a wife.

It's gorgeous, but too big for a young child. Do you have a handy nickname?

I think it is beautiful and perfect for a little girl as well as grown woman. I thought about it when I was pregnant in the past. We were going to use Leila, but then had a little boy.
