In the film "The Secret of Roan Inish", Nuala was a sulkie, or a seal who could shed its skin and become human. It is said that anyone who could capture a sulkie's skin would have complete control over it; but once a sulkie finds its skin, neither chains of steel nor chains of love can keep it from the sea.

Nuala and Fionnuala were Ulster twins. Nuala was dark and Fionnuala was fair (fionn being fair in Irish). They both fell in love with the same warrior and Nuala killed Fionnuala by drowning her. He didn't marry her anyway.

I think it could also be pronounced NOO-la, since Fionnuala is pronounced fin-OO-la. But I don't speak Gaelic, so I could be wrong.
