Meaning: Kayla could be a variant transcription of Kaila, the Yiddish form of Hebrew Kelila meaning “crown of laurel”.

Kayla is also a dialect spoken by members of the Agaw people of Ethiopia, possibly meaning “artisan” or “one who has not crossed” in reference to the fact that Jews had to avoid certain actitivities during the Shabbat. 52 more words
