My great grandmother's name was Lula (although it got pronounced "Lulie" because she lived in the hills of Eastern Kentucky.) Anyway, I think it's quite nice.

In the past, the name Lula was often given the nickname Lulie. This is especially evident in census records.

The name Lula, however, was never pronounced as LOO-lee, even in the hills of Eastern Kentucky.

This is also a common nickname in Spanish speaking countries for girls named Lourdes.

No way, this name is too cutesy, girly, and ditzy, and it kind of sounds like a tacky county girl name from several decades ago.

It does sound rather country-esque, but I actually like it. It reminds me of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" where it's revealed that Holly Golightly's real name is Lula Mae.

My grandmother's name was Lula. It apparently wasn't a nickname for anything; it was simply "Lula". She was born, raised, and spent nearly her entire life in Puerto Rico, and while I know the name can be Spanish in origin, no one still among the living in my family knows whether or not it was actually supposed to mean anything on its own.
I like the name because I've always associated it with my Hispanic grandmother, but I can see how it might come across as... "rural", used in an American sense, I guess.
