|Species|| Kappa (Japan)|
Leila (クク, Kuku?) is a green turtle that appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. She is Kapp'n's and Leilani's daughter and Grams's granddaughter. She works at the Island along with Grams and Leilani and acts as a merchant that the player can sell items to for small amounts of bells. Be warned that when you sell an item, she will only give you 1/20 of the regular price, so it's better to place your items in the box by the front counter and sell them once you return to town.
Leila wears a pink, floral dress and has two yellow hibiscuses supporting her brown pigtails. Her hair is parted around the top, just like the rest of her family's. Her body is a bright green, and she has pink cheeks. She has features similar to Kapp'n.
She speaks in a very childish manner, using words like "fwiend" instead of friend, "pway" instead of play, and "wiff" instead of with. According to one of Kapp'n's shanties she favors her mother. She also cries when people tell her she looks like her father, and has the same island accent as the rest of her family (examples include "yer").
Leila is a variant of the name Layla which means Night in Arabic and originated from the story Layla and Majnun.
Leila's name variant also contains the word Lei to match her mother's name.
