If you saw the name Ayla how would you pronounce it? EYE-la or AY-la (rhymes with DAY)

Also, if you saw the name Cave how many of you would recognize it as a name from a video game? (If you could ask your SO, too, that would help. I'm a woman gamer, but I think more men would recognize it than women)


If you want to flame either name (hey that rhymes) do me a favor: raise your hand, and put it over your mouth. I'm not interested in hearing anyone's negatives. Thanks.

I would pronounce it with an A not E. And I love that name! I'm not a gamer and neither is my DH, so I would not associate Cave with a video game.

I would pronounce it 'eye-la' because there is an old techno/trance song called Ayla Part 2 and that's how they say it.

Neither I nor DH are gamers so I wouldn't associate the name Cave with a game, just a place in nature.

Thank you, everyone!!

Hubby picked Cave (it would be a middle name) and my first thought was Cave Johnson from Portal 2. He won't admit if he got the idea from the game or not and I was curious if others would jump to the same conclusion. The name is growing on me. Ryan Cave P. or Ayla Renne P.
