A definite no imho.It has a harsh and ugly sound. A very unattractive name.

I really love uncommon names but have always thought Ursula looks ugly written down and sounds ugly too. Sorry!

I like it, it's on my list for dd2.

It's a lovely name. Go for it.

Mildred is also a nice alternative wink

Strong not string!

I adore Ursula - it was our girl name for this baby but he's a third boy smile It is unusual, string and elegant and ours would have been named for Ursula Le Guin (and hubby sure didn't mind the Ursula Andress link either, hehehe).

Ursula Buffay grin

That's all it reminds me of.

Porn star.

"unusual but not too weird"
that

Love love Ursula, so elegant - would have used it myself but it didn't go with our surname. Lovely name smile

MerylStrop Thu 15-Nov-12 22:03:52

I love it. Nickname Sula

Love it! Had DD2 shown up vaguely on time, she'd have been Ursula.

almapudden Thu 15-Nov-12 21:54:43

It's my mum's name. I used to hate it but now I think it's lovely - unusual but not too weird, strong and with a great meaning (little she-bear).

Binkybix Thu 15-Nov-12 21:47:02

I really like it, but DH has vetoed it from our list. That doesn't mean I've taken it off though!

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 15-Nov-12 20:36:16

I like it!

TempusFuckit Thu 15-Nov-12 20:30:29

It's the kind of name I usually like, but just can't get past the fact it was Phoebe's pornstar twin sister's name in Friends. Sorry.

Beamur Thu 15-Nov-12 20:24:31

I love it and was seriously tempted to use it, but didn't in the end - I wasn't that keen on the nn for it and thought it was a bit long to use every day. Love the way it sounds though, I think it's an elegant and sophisticated name.

PrannyHamster Thu 15-Nov-12 20:22:14

I like it, it has a lovely sweeping sound and is very dignified and elegant! (And I'm saying that as someone who grew up watching the Little Mermaid).

Viviennemary Thu 15-Nov-12 19:50:34

Hmm. Not sure. It's quite unusual. On the whole though, probably not.

Geranium3 Thu 15-Nov-12 19:50:09

oh don't! sounds very 60's/70,s in a grotty way!

noisytoys Thu 15-Nov-12 19:47:45

I have an Aunty Ursula. She's cool and her name really suits her

Lizzylou Thu 15-Nov-12 19:44:19

Love it.
Very elegant imo

Bumpstart Thu 15-Nov-12 19:39:03

Love it

Kelerina Thu 15-Nov-12 16:24:58

LOVE it! I am having a boy so can't use it but to be honest DP would never have let me use it anyway, sigh.....
