Ancient Islamic Ayla

In Aqaba, there is an ancient cite called, 'Ayla'.  We didn't know this when we decided to name our daughter, Ayla and we were pleasantly surprised when we found out that it was a place in Jordan.

Ayla was the capital city of the early Islamic period from AD 650 to the arrival of the Crusaders in 1116 AD.
