Ugly. Who would call her daughter this?

Sorry, sounds like someone yodeling. Or a difficult-to-pronounce Polynesian word.

Actress Marcia Gay Harden (Stephen King's The Mist) has a daughter named Eulalia.

A unique and lovely name. Might have pronunciation problems, but well worth it.

I love the way it sounds, but I am not so sure about the spelling. I wouldn't personalise the spelling though, as I think that ruins names.

This sounds like a speech impairment to me.

Sounds like she should be rocking on the screen porch with Miss Scahhhhlit, drinking mimosas and fanning herself with a big palmetto leaf.

Olalla and Lalla are Spanish diminutives of Eulalia.
According to some sources Eulalia, so popular in Spain, was introduced into England during the Middle Ages, and was mispronounced as Hilaria. Such sources see Hilaria during the Middle Ages as a form of Eulalia rather than a feminine form of Hilary.

I fell in love with this name the first time I saw it when I was twenty years old. It was the name of one of the poets in some Spanish-language poetry anthology my Spanish class was using. I like the European and Latin American pronunciation Yu-LAHL-ya, and the nickname Lally. It's one of my most favorite female names.

It sounds like either a medical condition or some strange garbled form of ukelele.

Pronounced like "yoo-LAH-lee-ə".

Wow! One would really have "to talk well" to pronounce this name with ease! It sounds like a tongue-twister. Too many vowels and Ls. Other than that, it's not the worst name out there.

This name is adorable. I first heard it reading A Rose For The ANZAC Boys in which Midge's aunt is named Eulalia nicknamed Lally.

A pretty, delightful and unusual name. Once you get the hang of it, the pronunciation won't be such a big deal.
