Spell it as it sounds: "Leela"
I would think Leila = "lay-la"
and the others I wouldn't be sure on the right pronunciation.
I reckon you don't (and she won't) want to have to 'explain' her name for her whole life

I know 3 people with this name (2 adults and 1 child) and they're all spelled Leila. They've never had issues with people not knowing how to pronounce it, I'm pretty sure its the standard spelling so id go with it.
