Etymology & Historical Origin - Kamila

Kamila is the Polish and Slavic spelling of Camilla which in turn is the feminized form of an old Roman family name Camillus, possibly derived from the ancient (and now defunct) Etruscan language meaning “free-born”. In Latin, one called Camillus referred to a young boy who was chosen from among the Roman nobility to attend the Priests during sacrifices in Rome’s pagan era. This was an honor and so those selected were people of aristocracy. The name Camilla appears in Virgil’s famous epic poem, “The Aeneid” with the distinction of being the strongest female mortal. As the daughter of King Metabus, she was promised to the service of Diana (goddess of the hunt). While the king was fleeing his revolting subjects, he came upon a river as he was carrying the baby Camilla. He safely hurled her to the other side by tying her to his spear. She was raised as a warrior maiden and became accustomed to the chase as a servant of Diana. Virgil claimed that Camilla ran so quickly she could turn blades of grass into ashes. As an aside, “kāmil” is also the Arabic word for “perfection”.

Popularity of the Name Kamila

Even though Kamila is legitimately the Polish/Slavic spelling of Camilla, it appears as if Americans have adopted this particular spelling for other reasons. The spelling of Kamila did not appear on the female naming charts until 2006 which suspiciously coincides with the rise in popularity of Camila (the most popular spelling of this name in the United States – and also the Spanish spelling). It seems that Kamila is not a choice among Slavic-Americans, but rather Americans who like to replace popular “C” names with the letter “K” (Khloe, Kadence, Kassandra). Kamila is more likely a casualty of this particular trend. Nevertheless, both Camila and Kamila are gorgeous names with very ancient roots.
