About Nyla

Go back to names list

There is much speculation as to the origin of the feminine name Nyla. It could be a feminine form of Nyles, a masculine name and a variant of Neil, and would therefore be of Irish origin and would mean ‘Champion’. Some hold that it is Hebrew in origin, others that it is Arabic. It could also perhaps come from the name of the river Nile. All of these suggested origins tie in with the fact that the name is most popular in the Middle East.
