Mayela’s name

Some of our friends have asked about the significance or meaning of Mayela’s name (which is pronounced May-yeh-lah). We asked our daughter Melanie about this, and the answer was a bit surprising.

It is not Spanish and has no specific meaning that Melanie knows of.

She was watching a Dora the Explorer video with her daughters, and as the credits rolled at the end, she saw this name Mayela. She immediately liked it, and assuming that it was a “female name,” she and Julio chose it for their baby girl.

If any of my blog readers have more information about or insight into this name, please post a comment and let us all know.
