Etymology & Historical Origin - Jayla

The name Jayla is a modern invention, apparently an elaboration of the popular “Jay” sound by adding the feminine “-la” extension. As a result, there is no etymology or history for this name. The only thing we could find was “jaya” which is the Sanskrit word for ‘victory.’ Jayla materialized in the mid-1990s when names like Jayden, Jayda and Jaylen also cropped up. The name Jayla follows the current naming trend in the United States of “made-up” names. There are several instances of this in the “Jay” and “Kay” category in particular.

Popularity of the Name Jayla

The name Jayla makes her first appearance on the U.S. popularity charts in 1995, coming in at position #693. Over the next 11 years, the name advances almost 600 spots and briefly hits the Top 100 list in 2003. The next year Jayla falls off that list and can’t seem to decide where she wants to go from here. The name reached a point of stagnancy in the past couple of years (about 2,400 baby girls are given this name each year). Made-up names with a lack of historical usage are usually a mark of fleeting trends. We don’t expect this name to last on the charts for more than another decade. It’s a pretty name with a lovely sound, but it lacks some depth and substance.
