Help can't agree on the spelling... Lock Rss

So my DP and I have agreed on the name but now we can't decide how best to spell it. The name sounds like Me - La. We don't what pronouciation to be a big issue everytime someone reads the name. Various spellings we have seen are: Mila, Mela, Miela, Melah, Meelah.

I would love some other opinions...as we can't ask friends and family.

Hi

I like Mila. It just looks right.
The only way I have ever seen it is MILA, however I like it Miela as well. Meelah makes the pronounciation more obvious but just doesn't look as nice smile
Oh thats a hard one! I would pronounce Mila as Millar, but can see how Mela and Melah could be pronounced Mel-a. I think Meelah looks the closest to the pronounciation to avoid confusion.

Mila. The rest look like made up names, especially Melah and Meelah.
meila or meelah smile

To me I would pronounce Mila as Miller.
I like Meela or Melah.
I think mila sounds and looks best.. Good luck
I like Mila best, gorgeous name btw! smile
Mela.
DP's sister is called Carmela. Not Car-mel-a. Car-mee-la. So I like Mela. smile

But all but Mila look like they are shortened versions of a longer name. So maybe Mila would be the safest bet.

I agree with PP. I would pronouce Mila. Miller.

Ive only seen it spelt Miela, or Milah.
Meelah.

I like this one the best I woudn't know how to pronounce the other ones.
