Love this name. Lula was my great grandmother's name. She was the daughter of a Protestant Minister in Indiana and the youngest of 10 children. Half the people called her Lula and half Lulu. It was her given name not a nickname.

Lula is a beautiful name. It doesn't sound hillbilly at all. I prefer it to Louise.

It sounds like the name of a southern blonde. I have no idea why. I prefer Luljeta though.

I can't picture this name on anyone who doesn't come from a rural area. It has "country bumpkin" written all over it.

This sounds cute and old fashioned (in a good way).

My mother's name was Lula Mae. It is an older, outdated name of this century. My mom wasn't particularly fond of it. She was raised by farmers in rural Oklahoma in the 30's and 40's. Most Lula's are of African American decent. The name means "Famous Warrior". I don't think this name will stand the test of time and will fade in the future.

I much prefer the girl names Lulu and Lola. Maybe the name Lula may possibly grow on me in the future? Who knows?

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.

Sounds very backwoods country.

Lula is also nickname for Ludmila.

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.

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.

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

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.
