Etymology & Historical Origin - Myla

Myla is a modern invention most believe to be a feminine rendition of the masculine Myles which has its roots in the Norman French. The origin of the name Myles is uncertain. It could be a diminutive of Michael or come from the Latin word “miles” meaning “soldier”. Myla could also possibly be connected to the Slavic element “mil” (as in Mila) which means ‘grace, favor’ (a name brought to England by way of the Vikings). Myla could also be an elaboration of Mya (a modern form of Mia which is a diminutive of Maria) or else a slight alteration of Myra (which was a name invented by a 17th century poet). Myra is believed to be either an anagram of Mary or a twist on the word “myrrh” (one of the gifts brought to Jesus in the manger). One thing we can say for sure: Myla is a name with uncertain origins and most likely a simple invention by putting two appealing sounds together: my+la.

Popularity of the Name Myla

Myla has only had a position on the naming charts since 2005 marking her as a very new entrant into the panoply of female names in America. It certainly didn’t hurt when the superstar Swiss tennis player Roger Federer named one of his twin daughters Myla Rose in July 2009. Today, the name Myla is used with very light moderation in the United States but she’s still trending upwards. Myla feels like an updated version of Myra and it also has a possessive sound with the “my” prefix. It’s pretty, understated, minimalistic and lovely.
