My name is Nuala and I pronounce it Noola the first 'a' is silent - I get all variations of the spelling and pronunciation from people when they see/hear it for the first time. I have also been told it translates to Penelope in English - how true this is I don't know. I can't say I dislike the name, but I have only met about two other Nualas in my life and both were older than me (I'm 45 this year). I don't imagine it will ever be a popular name and while there is nothing fancy about it, it is nice not to have a common name.

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.

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.

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.
