Meaning:helper to the priest
Camilla is a pretty, feminine name that goes back to the Roman name Camillus. It comes with a famous royal association (Prince Charles’s wife, Camilla Parker Bowles) and a celebrity link (model Camila Alves, who’s married to actor Matthew McConaughey). Pronounced ka-MIL-a, the name also belonged to a legendary Roman warrior who was so fast she could run through a field and turn the grass into ashes. So it’s not only a lovely name but a badass one as well!
