Hello, I'm painting a Mandala and I want to include the name of my daughter (Carla), for that reason I wish I knew how to write her name (Carla) in Sinhala alphabet.
Thank you so much

The name can be written as follows.

This is the common way to write your daughters name

කාලා

But there is a silent r sound in pronunciation. Therefore this way also correct.
Silent r,s are not in sinhala prononciations. therefore no language symbol for silent r.
කා(ර්)ලා

The first method is more than enough. But it is better to know both ways.
