One of my favorite names in Spanish.
Also used in Croatian:
Being born in Australia I've pronounced my own name "Pay-o-la" my whole life, not really knowing how to pronounce it the proper Italian way. I never really liked it and wished for the more common names of my peers and yet I am complimented on my name very often, thus I have grown to like it in recent years :)
My name’s Paola and I love it and hate it. I hate it because, as many other comments said, I live in the US and everyone either pronounces it Paula or Payola, like Crayola. When I was younger it drove me crazy but I’ve gotten used to it. I love it because it’s unique and stuff, especially because my siblings have super boring names (Madison, James and William).
Paola Ogechi Egonu (born in Cittadella - Italy on 18/12/1998 ). Best opposite and silver medal with the Italian team at the last volleyball championship in Yokohama.
Seriously, Paula with an o there’s clearly a pau in the name's pronunciation. So why would you change it with a o?
Paola Iezzi of Paola e Chiara. Her & her sister are excellent singers.
My name is Paola and I love it. My whole life in the US, people have mispronounced it, Pay-ola like crayola is the worst, but they are easily corrected. It should be pronounced Pah-oh-lah, all short A's and short O. In middle school people called me Paula Abdul after the singer, but that didn't bother me because I liked her. I have never met any other other Paola's in the US. I like having a unique name. It is more common in Italy and Latin America.

Paola Antonini, a Brazilian Instagram model who lost her left leg in a car accident. However, it doesn't stop her from being a bikini model, at all.
Definitely not common. But nevertheless, if you're born in a hispanic family, sometimes you've got strange and uncommon names. Paola is actually my sister's name. And being in America, her teacher and peers are always saying 'Paula' but not 'Pa-Oh-La'.
Also used in Croatia.
The typical Spanish form is Paula, not Paola. [noted -ed]
Paola is a classic Italian name, overused in the 1950s and 1960s. It was the 2nd most popular name in Rome in 1951, 1956 and 1961 (always behind Patrizia). It is not very popular today.
Queen Paola is the elegant wife of King Albert of the Belgians, yet it's hard for me to believe that such an elegant queen could share the name of a VERY not-classy classmate of mine!
This a good name for Hispanic girl.
Italian singer Paola, from Paola e Chiara.
I think it's a Portuguese name as well.
Hey y'all, my name is Paola and sometimes I would wish so much that it wasn't my name. Most of my teachers always mispronounce it and it bothers me so much to have to say it for them. But no matter how much I say I hate it, it's the name I was born with and I like it A LOT (and so do the BOYS). Well that's all, hope y'all have good comments on it too cause I think it's not that bad.
I picture Paola as dark haired, classy, popular, and confident. I only knew one Paola, and everybody called her "PAY-oh-luh", so if you name somebody Paola in America, you'll probably get a lot of that.
Personal impression: hardworker, popular, caring, and straight out!
