My name is Paula. I must say that growing up I didn't like my name. I was always the only one in school with this name. But having grown up, I appreciate the fact that there are very few of us out there. To me now, it's a unique name which feels very pretty to me. And the fact that it means small suits me well too. I would recommend this name for a little girl.

I like Paula because it is the female counterpart to Paul. My last name is Revere. Paul was best known for being a messenger. I have a message. Therefore, Paula Revere lives.

There is a singer, actress and model named Paula Mitrache who also goes by the name Haiducii (Romanian for "the outlaws" and yes it is PLURAL). Maybe you know the song Dragostea din Tei by O-zone. Haiducii released her own version in Romania six months after it was first released in Moldova by O-zone. Both groups have accused each other of taking it without permission and O-zone won in court. Haiducii currently lives in Rome.

I once knew a girl who pronounced it Pow-oo-la. Sounds funny when you say it out loud.

I prefer Paola than Paula, it's ugly.

I love this name - lovely look, lovely sound.
I think Paula Abdul and a lot of Paulas of her age group owe their names to the 1960s pop duo Paul and Paula with that hit song "Hey Paula, I want to marry you/ Hey hey Paul, I want to marry you too."

Out of all the Taylors, Catherines, Jessicas, Jennifers and Emilys this is a nice breath of air. It's short, sweet, pretty and fits both young and old.

Many years ago a young man appeared as a contestant on Groucho Marx's television show You Bet Your Life. It seems that his parents were hoping for a girl whom they would have named Paula. He was born instead and they named him Paula anyway! He seemed quite well adjusted.

Not really a big fan of this name, although I do like Paul. I was surprised to see how popular it is in some countries, but I have to say I'd rather meet a little girl named Paula than say Madison or Kayla, yuck!
