Layla

Layla is a lyrical name that’s taken huge leaps and bounds to establish its presence as a top girl name. Of Arabic origin, the romantic-sounding name means “dark beauty,” although the name would be appropriate even if your daughter were not a brunette. It’s also the name of a famous Eric Clapton song inspired by his then unrequited love for Pattie Boyd, wife of his pal and musician George Harrison.
