Baby name Kamilla?

So I’ve been on a name stint for awhile, and I’m just curious on thoughts of the name Kamilla??

Would it be cute on a little girl or does it give off a stuffy kind of vibe? I keep coming back to this name!

When I read it I pronounce it as kah-MILL-uh, but do any of you first read it as kah-MEAL-uh (this is kind of how I pronounce ‘Camille’)?

I like the nickname possibilities - Kami, Millie…

What do you think??

It’s not stuffy at all! It’s very pretty, though I don’t know how I feel about it being spelled with a K… Camilla instead maybe?

Kamilla isn’t my style, but I can absolutely see the appeal! I like it better spelled Camilla, although I can’t quite pinpoint why. Regardless, it’s one of those sweet-spot names that somehow manages to have strong history without feeling heavy, and it feels modern but not trendy. Plus it’s familiar, but not heavily used. I don’t think it sounds stuffy, especially with the delightful Millie as a nickname! I would be inclined to pronounce it the same as you; I would say Camilla/Kamilla as kah-MILL-uh and Camila (one “L”) as kah-MEAL-uh.

Kamilla is a nice name, although I far prefer the Camilla spelling. It doesn’t feel too stuffy, I can definitely see it on a baby/child/teen/young adult. I read it as ka-MILL-uh. For me, ka-MEEL-uh would be spelt Camila, Kamila, or Kamilah.

I do think Kamilla is super pretty, but I like the Camilla spelling more. Definitely not stuffy at all, and very cute! I pronounced it as Kat-MILL-uh first, and I think that most people in America that are native English speakers would pronounce it that way. I do think a Kamilla would always have to say “Camilla with a K,” but that’s certainly not a hard correction to make, and if you like I more, definitely go for it! I think Kamilla is so sweet and easy to say that she wouldn’t need a nickname, but I agree it has great potential. I especially like Millie and Mila!

Ohhh Mila is pretty!

Camilla is a beautiful name . . . Kamilla with a “K” seems needlessly confusing. Camilla is one of those names where it has a single assumed spelling, like Elizabeth.

Use just Camilla, it’s much better.

I prefer Camilla but Kamilla sounds nice and Kami is cute

I love Camila/Camilla! I’m not a fan of the K spelling, I’m sorry. Mila would be a fantastic nickname.

I don’t mind it, but it makes me think of the pretentious sister from The Good Place (although hers is spelled differently). I definitely pronounce it -mill not -meal. Also, I much prefer K to C, so I like this spelling.

I would pronounce it as Kuh Meal Uh. But the other pronunciation is also pretty.
Unlike the others I’m not bothered by the use of K over C. Doesn’t really matter to me.

I’m not a fan of the ‘K’ spelling - it tends to be associated with tackier names these days - but I really like ‘Camilla’. I think it’s elegant and pretty, but not stuffy at all.

I pronounce Camilla as cah-MILL-uh, and Camille is ca-meel.

Hi, I’m the user of said name but with the single L, “Kamila”, and here are my thoughts about it. I really like it as it is, kah-meal-uh but Kamilla, pronounced kah-mill-uh is good too. As you mentioned the nicknames, most people call me Kami or Kama and I find it very cute. I’ve never heard it sounds stuffy or anything like that. People generally like it. Also, I think the full name is very feminine and suits a grown up woman while Kami or Millie are perfect for the younger age.

I like it! I agree that with two “l”s I say “mill” in the middle, and with only one, “meal.”
(In response to a post above): I don’t think of K as tacky at all (one of my kids’ names starts with K—as do lots of great names!), but I think Camilla is a much more common spelling—so you can weigh the pros and cons of that.
The K spelling also makes me think of Kamala (KAH-mah-lah) a beautiful South Asian name.

My friend had a baby girl named Camilla a few years ago. We call her Mila and Millie mostly. Definitely wearable at all ages. I do prefer the C to the K spelling though.
