A short, simple, graceful name that hasn't got lots of syllables, which makes it easy to say again and again. It's pretty, exotic and unusual. Pronunciation difficulties would hardly commence I bet.

It's not a bad name, but one of my childhood friends had a big (male) Labrador called Zola, so I can't hear this name without thinking of a big dog. Ok, so he was a really sweet dog, but still, that association will stick with me (I don't really like dogs that much). Other than that, I do agree that this is better than most last-name-turned-first-names.

A word of warning - in Hebrew "zola" is a word meaning "cheap". For example the title of the film Pulp Fiction was translated to Sifrut Zola (literally, cheap literature).

Gianfranco Zola - Italian footballer & current manager of West Ham Utd. This name always seems like a male name to me because of the football association!

Zola doesn't sound as harsh or as inappropriate as some surnames, like Mackenzie. Emile Zola was an intelligent and very creative man.

In Italian, it also means 'piece of earth' [Zolah, Zoela].
