Charmingly old-fashioned names are having their day and Lila is no exception. It’s truly a multicultural name with Persian, English, French Sanskrit, and Latin origins, so pick the meaning you like from “dark-haired beauty” to “island,” and run with it. Just know that Lila is at the peak of its popularity in recent years, so yours probably won’t be the only one.
