Comments for STARLA:

This really is a terribly tacky and ulgy name, in my opinion. It brings to mind the incredibly masculine wife of Rex in the film "Napoleon Dynamite". No child should have to suffer with this.

Hmmm, I beg to differ! Starla is beautiful name. :) Just because you don't like a person, it definitely doesn't mean that you should trash it. It is exotic and uncommon! But if you MUST, then whatever! Now, Kate is a completely different story!
-- Starla-Marie_1993  7/21/2006
Starla - exotic? No, it's trashy, unoriginal and gross. Reminds me of an 8 year old hillbilly type or a prostitute. Don't curse your children.

I think Starla would be a good name if matched with a right personality. It should be energetic and cheerful, and girly, yet not too vulnerable.
-- Fable  8/10/2006
I think it's ugly.
-- IrishGirl  8/20/2006
Eeeeeeeeew! I hate this name, it sounds so pretentious. Plus there is a porn star named Starla Fox.

This is my own name. The good points are that it's easy to spell, leaves no doubt that I am female, and I didn't have to be one of several Starlas in school. I didn't even have to be one of two till I came onto the BTN boards in July! The bad points are it sounds trashy, like some third-rate over the hill stripper or a blowsy stretch-pants-wearing fat woman in a trailer park hoping to make it onto the Jerry Springer show. Also, when I worked as a dispatcher for a trucking company, I would answer the phone with "Trinity Trucking, this is Starla." Nine time out of ten, no matter how hard I tried to enunciate clearly, the other person thought I had said my name was Darla. As if rolling out "Trinity Trucking" quickly and clearly wasn't hard enough!

I find Starla totally unattractive.
-- Anonymous User  9/24/2006
I understand where you people are coming from, but I guess, since it's my name, I was used to it being used for an adolescent. I am not sure how my parents came up with Starla, but I can infer that it was in honour of a distant relative. Or not.
-- Starla-Marie_1993  9/29/2006
I dislike this name. It sounds clashy and terribly tacky, I'm afraid. Almost fantasy book-like.
-- wordybookworm  12/23/2006
I don't really like it. It's kind of tacky and doesn't seem like much thought was put into this name.
-- Anonymous User  2/23/2007
I find this to be a lovely alternative to the name Star.
-- Luangi  5/31/2007
I think Starla is a beautiful name! It's unique and unpopular and has a gorgeous meaning. Those of you who think that it's a whore-sounding name are disgustingly close minded. Just because it has a few unworthy bearers doesn't make the name any worse. I can't even imagine what kind of terror you people are at school, making fun of people because of their names.
-- Anonymous User  8/16/2007
Hey it's a cool name! But whenever I think of a name that is related or coming from the name Star, it always makes me think of unoriginality. Like people are getting bored with the classics and most commons like Mary and Lucy and so they are inventing more exotic ones. But Starla is pretty cool!
-- dreamgirl54  11/11/2007
The name Star is a tacky, infantile name associated with trashy people whose only hope of getting rich is that their daughter becomes famous for being an r'n'b singer, outrageous talk show host, or some type of all-American successs story. So, I'd say that adding a -la to it doesn't make it any less tacky. If you really like the sound of this, name your daughter Darla.

In the movie Napoleon Dynamite, Rex (the tai-kwon-do instructor) has a wife named Starla.
-- Pippin  5/16/2008
It's pretty, but, kinda lame. Like it's so cute that it's not. But it makes a great cat name! Or a cartoon character, lol.
-- not_another_Jessica  6/22/2008
I *love* this name! It's so pretty!
-- dreamflower  9/1/2008
Not surprised at the amount of rude comments, but geez, people. A porn star? Get a grip! Starla isn't the best name out there, but it isn't the worst, either. If you're considering this, I'd suggest Stella. : )
-- WilderThanBridget  10/29/2008
I think the name is kind of tacky. It's no worse than Star though.
-- Rachelgirl1989  12/22/2008
Hm, why do people hate this name so much? My name's Starla and I really love it! Well, people usually call me Star anyway, but seriously, I don't see why Starla's such an ugly name. I guess it's just me; I would hate to be called Jessica or something (sorry to insult all the Jessicas here).
-- Starla_TH  4/7/2009
I don't like it, I think it's rather silly. I dislike both but if you really had to, stick to Star.
-- emmiix3  4/7/2009
I think Starla is a beautiful name. I didn't realize at first that it was a real name. I think it's so celestial and feminine. Lovely.
-- Martha Gold  4/13/2009
UGLY UGLY UGLY and TRASHY, don't curse your child with such an awful and corny name!
-- chloeellen  5/3/2009
This name has never been trashy or ghetto to me at first glance. I think it's mature, really. It's so beautiful. I don't understand the hate.

Nevertheless, I think it'd be a good idea to name a child this. And I doubt all Starlas will grow up to be porn stars. Where the heck you people get these associations from, is beyond me.
-- CanadianChibi  5/29/2009
Seconded, WilderThanBridget (though I do disagree with your suggestion of 'Stella' as an alternative) and CanadianChibi. Though the meaning may be a little too literal, it's a nice name.
-- seraphine_eternal  6/1/2009
I like the made up name Starlie or Starly. It sounds cute!
-- kool_babe14  9/27/2009
This name sounds a little less pathetic than Star, but it still makes me think that the parents want their daughter to be a celebrity. It also sounds like "starlet", which will lead to teasing.
-- bananarama  9/29/2009
The main character of the TV show "Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders" is named Starla.
-- CarolinW  3/18/2010
Very tacky and forced.
-- Athena Nike  4/4/2010
It's a pity that this name is so pretty, because, honestly, it is VERY trashy. I'm not sure if its trashiER than Star, but they are neck-and-neck in the Trashiest Name Contest.
If you love the meaning, go with Stella. You love the sound? Go with Darla. They're both reasonable, less trashy, MUCH prettier alternatives.
-- DaphneSusan  12/21/2010
Starla is simple, easily pronounced and spelt and sounds quite pretty, however, I would never use it because it is slightly trashy, I suppose.
-- Anonymous User  1/27/2011
I'm guilty for finding it a little on the pretty side, but it's still very tacky and sounds like a cheap combination of Stella and Darla, both much better names.
-- Black_X  7/2/2011
I think it is funny when people say a certain name is trashy as no it is not. No one's name is trashy.
-- Anonymous User  8/23/2011
I think Starla is a lovely name. I don't understand why so many people hate it and call it trashy. A person is trashy, not their name. So many hateful people... :(
-- chidoll  4/25/2012
I can't think of anything but Rex's super manly wife in Napoleon dynamite when I hear this name, no matter how hard I try.
-- Anonymous User  1/28/2013
The name Starla was given to 73 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
-- Oohvintage  7/18/2013
Starla is the name of Muscle Man's girlfriend in Regular Show.
-- Anonymous User  8/21/2013
I guess I'm the odd one who actually likes the name Starla. When I first saw it, my thoughts were far from concluding it's trashy or tacky. Why in the world would a name be trashy? I see people use that adjective to describe names on here, and that is truly nothing but classist. True, to some people's ears Starla may not sound pretty, but that doesn't mean its tacky or trash. People are trashy, not their names. And anyways, when I, personally, think of the name Starla, I imagine a beautiful, intelligent, and imaginative woman with long hair.

My name is Starla & let me tell u I am far from being trash or a trailer park whore.
You can't go by a name on what a person is like.
I am a wife & mother of beautifully successful children. I've been told I am a very humble person who would give u the shirt off her back.
So before you judge people by their names, find out just what kind of person they really are.
People don't choose their names, they're given their names. So think before you speak!
-- Starla1234  7/2/2014
My name is Starla. Starla Doreen to be exact. When I was younger, I did not like my name as I was constantly being called Scarlet, Charlotte, or Darla by adults and "Starlight" by my peers. Once I reached my late teens, I developed an appreciation for my name. I have had many people tell me all over the world (I'm military) they love my name and it suits my personality. I am a wife, mother, very personable and creative, with a wicked sense of humor. I even laugh at my name being on "The Regular Show" and "Napoleon Dynamite". Although the characters are a bit scary, I find it a compliment. I am a working professional with an advanced degree, which did not require me swinging from a pole or making videos to obtain. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I caution you not to link negativity to names, consider the soul of the person who wears the name. I previously worked in a school district where parents named their children names of cars and alcoholic beverages. Like one of the contributors stated, we did not choose our names, our names were given to us. Names are not ugly... some people's behaviors are ugly!

My name's Starla and I never ever liked it growing up but going by star as a nickname's really cool and has become a lot more modern and I even have the nickname Estrella that I really like since I'm Native American and am mistaken for Mexican a lot anyways. I always have people mispronouncing my name like carla, darla, scarlet, stella, scar which is really frustrating so half the time I go by my middle name of Rose which is a lot less embarrassing. I don't think it's a trashy stripper white trash porn star name! But it definitely isn't as feminine or pretty as some people might think.
-- stardizzil  8/15/2014
I can not believe all the stupid comments. Grow up people, it's a name! I LOVE my name and am proud of it. STARLA is no more a trashy name than Tiffany or Brittany and it's much less common. I am neither trashy nor tacky. I happen to be a Registered Nurse. I worked my butt off to put myself through college and am currently working on my masters degree. There are many names I am not crazy about and would never consider for my child, some I wouldn't even consider for my pets but I would never insult someone based on their name. You know what you call that? Classy and mature. I am a member of a group dedicated to ladies named STARLA and they are fantastic. Very proud to be Team STARLA!
-- StarlaRN  8/25/2014
My wife's name is Starla. I'm very dissappointed with the negative comments here. It's a wonderful name and so uncommon. Starlas are all awesome and it's a great name!
