Sounds like this, "Urrgh..sula"

I love it

Haha, DH just texted to say no way too, so will put it down to the hormones!

I used to hate it, now I think it's kind of elegant, in a frosty Greta Garbo kind of way.

I love it - sounds like the name of a sophisticated, intelligent woman.

Very cool, but I expect your daughter wouldn't like it until she was older.

I really like it!
Cute nicknames too.

Doodler79 Thu 15-Nov-12 13:25:06

I think it's fab!!

BarbecuedBillygoats Thu 15-Nov-12 13:27:03

So many cute bear based nicknames until she's grown up enough for quite a grown up name. It's elegant

BonaDea Thu 15-Nov-12 14:35:29

I think it's quite harsh sounding.

Pancakeflipper Thu 15-Nov-12 14:36:21

I actually think its cool despite myself, it sort of reminds me of a nun's name (yes Sr Ursula).. but actually, I think picturing it on a kid its really quite different and cool and quirky and quite a nice relief from the candy-flossy-florally girls names about at the min

BTW think it goes best with single syllable surnames

RosannaBanana Thu 15-Nov-12 14:46:29

Nah, not nice. Imvho eyc...

RosannaBanana Thu 15-Nov-12 14:46:55

etc I meant!

Love it! Makes me think of Ursula Le Guin, a strong, intelligent, feminist!

Ursula is a lovely name and I've known a few lovely women of that name. I wish Disney hadn't used it fora baddie.

Love it, shorten it to Sula in our house.

Dislike. Makes me think of a big fat blue baddie in the little mermaid sad
