    In Turkish the sound Ay is pronounced Eye. Therefore the name is pronounced English name Isla. But should the spelling remain Ayla.

    Aayla is the name of my baby girl. Subahannallah!
    In Turkish the letters AY makes the Eye sound. However I added an a. My baby names gets mispronounced a lot but I didn’t like the spelling of isla and iyla just looks wrong!
