    I think it's too similar...and I don't like it tbh, it's sounds like a made up name. Sorry

    Ayla is a popular turkish girls name. It's pretty but it's very similar to isla. Pronounced exactly the same.

    When a Turkish friend of mine named her baby Ayla, someone mentioned that it is the Turkish equivalent of Isla. So yes they are similar, but I love both names and I would use it anyway.

    My niece is named Olivia and my cousin rang my sister when she had her youngest daughter because she wanted to name her Olive but wanted to make sure my sister didn't think it was too similar to Olivia. It was fine.

    My newborn daughters name is Isla. Ayla is Turkish and pronounced the same and it means 'the halo surrounding the moon and the stars'. I find it a beautiful name no matter how it is spelt.

    However if you're speaking of Ayla pronounced 'A-la' I still think it's nice.

    Don't be put off if you're worried about similar names. Go for something you love or you'll regret it.

    For siblings it would be too similar, but for cousins, it would depend on how much you see them.

    If only 1 or 2 times a year, then it'd be fine.

    If you are seeing them about once a month, then too similar.

    I love both names! Ayla is very pretty and I like the meaning too - maybe run it past your brother and see what he thinks? I also do love Sage as well - not so popular at the moment and very pretty too
