Etymology & Historical Origin - Jakayla

Jakayla is a new invention and therefore a name without meaning. It was coined off of Makayla (which happens to be a very popular name in the United States). American parents have a compulsion to invent new names and/or new spellings of common names, and Jakayla is yet another illustrious example of this persistent naming trend. There’s not much to say except that it’s a cool new combination of syllables and sounds. It is too modern to have any cultural significance just yet. But it is different. This fact alone appeals to many parents looking for an original name.

Popularity of the Name Jakayla

Jakayla first appeared on the U.S. female naming charts in 1999. Not coincidentally, 1999 directly followed the year when Makayla achieved Top 100 status in the United States (1998). It is quite clear from the graphs that the rising popularity of Makayla is what prompted Jakayla on to America’s list of baby girl names. In fact, Jakayla basically mimics the same patterns as Makayla on the charts – just to a much lesser extent. For instance, Makayla was the 37th most popular girl’s name nationwide in 2008 (her peak popularity). Similarly, 2009 was the best year ever for Jakayla’s usage at position #667 on the charts. Jakayla has never been a particular favorite, and she’s definitely trending backwards since 2009, but she certainly offers a twist on the ultra-trendy, perhaps too overused Makayla.
