Even though I think Paula is a dreadful name, one of my favorite people in the world is named Paula and I've grown to like it.

The nice judge from American Idol, although I don't know her last name, oh well.

Famous bearer is Paula Deen from the Food Network. And to help out MusicRat, the nice judge from American Idol is Paula Abdul.

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 love this name! Even though it is A LOT like "Paul", Paula is a good subsitute.

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.

Paula Fox is a writer. Unfortunately, she is the grandmother of Courtney Love.

I prefer Paola than Paula, it's ugly.
― Anonymous User  9/10/2008
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.

Also a feminine name in Croatia. [noted -ed]

Pronounced [POW-luh] in Portuguese. It was extremely popular during the 1960's in Portugal.

It is pronounced POW-lə in Spanish and German, like the Portuguese pronunciation.

Paula (1823-1833) was the daughter of King Pedro IV of Portugal and his wife Maria Leopoldine of Austria.

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!

Nancy Drew was renamed Paula in the Finnish books, although she's usually referred to as 'neiti Etsivä' (miss Detective).
Similarly, Georgina/"George" from the Famous Five is known as Paula/"Pauli" in Finnish.

Another diminutive of the name is "Paulinha" in Portuguese. [noted -ed]

Paula. Sounds very beautiful and elegant. Why don't the parents give this name anymore in the US? I would be grateful if this name was used so many times like in the '50s. :)
heidbz  5/20/2015
Paula is such a lovely & pretty name. :)

My mother's name is Paula and yes she was born in the 50's and 60's Paula kraze, but her father's name was Paul and she wanted to continue it, so my first name is Paulina even though hardly anyone calls me by it, I mostly go by my middle name.
CatpainA2020  11/7/2015
This name always reminds me of the Super Nintendo role playing game Earthbound for some reason, being the nerd that I am. Paula Polestar is the first person to join Ness and is a potent psychic. She also is key to beating the final boss. I also just like this name.

My name is Paula and I was born in 2002. But I was only named this because it's my Nonna's (grandma in Italian) name and in Italy kids are usually named after their Nonni (grandparents). To be honest, I don't like this name that much, but whatever

Also, in Italian it's spelt Paola and pronounced POW-lah.

My name is Paula and I was born in 1980 and I do and don't like my name. I don't like it because I was named after my Great Grandpa Paul who was not a nice man. Frankly, I would rather go by my middle name but everybody I know already calls me by my first name.

I think this is the best feminine form of Paul!
cutenose  2/9/2017
I really like this name. I'm thinking about naming my daughter this one day. We need more girls named Paula!

I was born in 1984. Growing up, I really despised my name, so I just had it legally changed to Paula a little over two weeks ago. I love this name because I think it suits me a lot better than my previous name did. I also love the name because I think it sounds very feminine and beautiful on me. Going through changing my name from what it was to Paula and getting everything switched over afterward was extremely stressful, but it is worth it because I feel so much better about myself now.
Paula2017  4/10/2017
This is my name, and I'm not a fan, but there are worse names. I prefer my middle name, Michelle, but then again, that name was super popular for my generation, and I do prefer having a name that is neither popular nor rare. I dislike the fact that I have basically a male name with a letter shoved on the end, and there aren't many nickname options. I do love Polly, but it doesn't sound good with my surname. I don't mind it being shortened to Paul, but mostly, nobody does, because it's a boys' name, and they think I won't like it. Paulie just increases the confusion with Pauline - and I am often mistaken for a Pauline, as it is. I think that Paula is more attractive than Pauline, and probably Paulina, Paulette and Pauletta are the nicest feminine versions of Paul.
Paula Puddephatt  5/5/2017
That's cool. My middle name is Michelle also. I decided to change my middle name along with my first. Paula Michelle sounds awesome! I am sorry that you really don't like the name. People have accidentally left the A off at the end of mine, calling me Paul in texts. This has only happened twice so far though. Honestly, I really love the name Paula due to the fact that I think it sounds nice, and it is rare. I don't like having a name that everyone else and their mother has. This is what was happening with my birth name as well. Everyone had it. No way. Not for me.

I am also named Paula. I love the name. I was named after my dad, whose name is Paul, which makes it even more special. I think the meaning fits me pretty well too, seeing as how I am very small. I love it, even though people like to make fun of it. Oh well, it is the name I was given and for that I am truly thankful to my parents.
MickeyMouse1203  8/17/2017
Why would anybody make fun of that name? That is absolutely ridiculous. I'm sorry that you have to go through that. Paula is a very beautiful name and no one has the right to pick on you about it.
Paula2017  10/15/2017
My name is Paula and I love my name even if some people make fun of it, but I'm okay with it. I was always the lonely one, always by myself, but I'm okay with it, I've been picked on since first school and I'm in high school now but still I love my name.
