LAILA (ليلى).  Variant spelling of Arabic Leila (q.v.), meaning "night."

LAILA (לַיְלָה).  Variant spelling of Hebrew Leila (q.v.), meaning "dark Oriental beauty."

    In the commencement of this little tale, Laila was seventeen.  She loved and was beloved by her only parent.  She was the flower, the pride, the honour of her connections.  Yes!  Laila's heart had, indeed, thrived in the smiling field of acceptable actions; and well might her sanguine warmth of fancy paint scenes of as happy tint and of as diversified colours as the rain-bow... (The Ladies' Literary Cabinet, v.1, 1819)
