I work at a little ice cream place and one girl named Zola came to order when I was at the register. I LOVED her name and haven't been able to get it out of my head since! She also seemed like a very nice girl, if anyone was wondering ;)
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this fact, but Zola is the first name of Meredith Grey's oldest (adopted) daughter from Grey's Anatomy :)
I think Zola is a pretty, mystical name, it's my favourite Z name and it isn't really heard of today so I think Zola will be the only one in her class. I like this name very much. Thanks for reading :)
I don't like this name at all. I'm not a big fan of Lola either.
Used by American musician Zola Jesus (1989-), whose real name is Nicole Hummel. She's a singer, songwriter, & record producer that combines electronic, industrial, classical, & goth music.
The name Zola was given to 127 girls born in the US in 2015.
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.
The name Zola was given to 92 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
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.
Makes me think of Zoloft.
Also from Kimbundu (northern Angola), Zola= love, esteem; imperative of verb kuzola= to love.
Zola Glassman, French actress
Zola Levitt (1938-2006), American religious leader
Zola Taylor (born 1934), American singer.

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