This name is like Samantha and Amanda, because they all have man in them. That is a shame.

I love the name Manuela, I think it is so beautiful, no matter which pronunciation you use. If I name my daughter this I will pronounce it Man-you-ella. As much as I love this name, I'm not sure If I will be able to use it. I am half Mexican, marrying an all-white guy. It's impossible to tell at this point if any of our 75% white children will be suited to the name (I always felt it sounded more Hispanic.) If we use it and she ends up not being suited to it, we could always use Ella or Nella as a nickname.

In one of my favorite movies, "The Pirate" Judy Garland plays the female lead, whose name is Manuela.

This was going to be my name because my dad's name is Manuel but I'm so happy it's not because this name is horrible for a female to have.

Oho, what a hilariously unfortunate name. I am certainly immature, but I'd never name a girl Manuela.

Also a feminine name in Croatia.

I love this name, but I prefer Emanuela. It's elegant, but Emanuela is more feminine.
