My name is Lalia, I was named after my grandmother who was named after her great, great grandmother who was Eulalia but they dropped the Eu leaving just Lalia. However, we pronounce our name, LAY-LUH like the Eric Clapton (Derrick and the Dominoes) song "Layla". The Arabic meaning for Lalia is Queen of night which couldn't be a more accurate description of myself because I thrive at nighttime. I have the issues of people mispronouncing it often but there are also many times that people say it correctly without guidance and I always give praise letting them know I am impressed. I took it for granted growing up with an unusual name but as I grew up the compliments helped me to appreciate and embrace my name. I still get compliments on my name at least, if not more than 85% of the time I tell someone what it is for the first time. I don't ever recall hearing anything negative (until reading previous comments on this page). I now love that it is not a common name. My middle name is Spring because that is the season in which I was born so it's Lalia Spring, the two together sound good and I thank my mom for putting the thought that she did into them.

My name is Eulalia Elvira Ninter. My mother named me for her grandmother, who is my great grandmother. My great grandmother already passed away. She died when I was 4 years old. My name is a reminder of my great grandmother.

I named my daughter Eulalia! (It was the name of my husband's beloved Southern great-grandmother, and we fell in love with the musical quality of it.) Whenever people hear her name, they say one of three things:
A) That's so beautiful! (I've been surprised at how often that is the first reaction...)
B) What do you call her for short? (Actually, "Eulalia." This wasn't planned, "Eulalia" just began to roll off the tougue from the beginning, and she is "Eulalia!" Although all the variations are nice, which we like because she'll be empowered to morph her given name into any number of pleasant varieties if she'd like to someday.)
C) How do you say that again? (The 4 syllables trip people up...)
But overall, it's a wonderful name.

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

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.

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.

Pronounced like "yoo-LAH-lee-ə".

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

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.

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.

Saint Eulàlia (ca. 290-12 February 303) is the patron saint of Barcelona, where as a Christian she suffered martyrdom during the reign of Roman emperor Diocletian.

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

This sounds like a speech impairment to me.

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.

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.

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

Ugly. Who would call her daughter this?

The name derives from "Evlalos", an epithet of god Apollon in Greek religion. The feminine form "Evlalia" (Eulalia) was a very common Greek name in Ancient Minor Asia.
