Love this name. If my firstborn had been a girl, Olalla would have been her name. Later I had a girl but since we live in the US we decided against it - we didn't want a lifetime of "what? can you spell it?" and "what kind of name is this now?"

In certain places this would be pronounced oh-lah-jah.

In certain places in America it is pronounced Oh-lah-sha. Places like Chihuahua, Mexico, Argentina, and Uruguay. But that's just the local accent. In Spanish Olalla is pronounced Oh-lah-yah.

She might not be "famous" but Olalla Dominguez is the wife of Fernando Torres, a striker who plays for Liverpool F.C. and Spain.

Also derived from Northwest American Chinook jargon, meaning berries.

Strange name. Makes me think of the phrase "ooh la la".

I agree with Bananarama, it does resemble (at least when written) the phrase 'Oo-la-la'. However, the Spanish letter elle (say, 'ay-yay') is pronounced like an English 'y' sound. Hence the pronunciation of 'o-la-ya'. Hope I helped!

Looks like Olaf for some reason.
