In Reply to: A Possible Origin Of "Ayala" from Mexico by Louis Gonzales Ayala of 522

this is yet another possible origin of our great name.
an art instructor of mine in the 60's, at nightingale jr high, told me that she believes it is derived from the term "praise allah" which in the language of the moors, who invaded spain, translates to something like > AY-ALLAH < ,
this might also explain why i've seen AYALA spelled w/ two "LL's" at times
i truly enjoyed the other examples of the origin of AYALA. let me know what you think of this example.

perhaps the name had already been created before the invasion by the moors.
