Name of the Week: Akeela

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 8.41.12 pm

One of my friends has been on my back for about two months to cover her name so I’m finally covering it. Akeela is a rare name that is a variant of Akilah an Arabic name meaning intelligent, logical. Akeela has never charted in Australia but in the UK it has scraped into the chart three times with 3 babies born each time in 1998, 2001 and 2006. The most popular spelling is Akeelah inspired by the 2006 movie Akeelah and the Bee and has charted every year since 2007 peaking with 12 babies. The Akilah spelling peaked in 2009 with 6 babies born. Akeela is an extremely unusual name with even with the three spellings combined at it’s peak it’s only made it to over 10 babies a few times.

    1. She was born 8 years before the film came out (1998) she does have some trouble with it and the similarity to A Killer especially since her last name is similar to sharp nippers
