Petula Clark pronounces it pe-TOO-lah, not pe-TYOO-lah.

Americans would pronounce Petula as Petoola like they pronounce news as nooz, while the English, Australians and probably others would read it as Petyoola.

Yuck! This names makes me think of "petulant," which is immature and childish.

This name is ugly. It sounds like the name of a disease.

I suppose this name is a Guilty Pleasure of mine. I think it sounds cute, vintage, but I'd certainly never use it. Who doesn't love a bit of "Downtown"? =)

I think it's an adorable name! I used it for a pet frog. Yes, I do pronounce it pe-tyoo-la.

I think it's kind of unusual and unique, but it does remind me of the word petulant or petulance, which means rude. (When I first heard this name, I thought it came from that word).
