whats your opinion?

I love the name, but feel it's a bit too loaded. Tallulahs have to be dead sexy, don't they? Like Giselles have to be ethereal and feminine, and Bellas have to be beautiful...

How about Talia?

I know a Tallulah and a Kizzi[sisters]spooky.

I really dislike Tallulah - it doesn't sound sexy/feminine at all imo - almost the opposite and quite comical.

onimolap Thu 06-Jan-11 22:25:02

I love it!

(but DH vetoed it, and to be fair, it doesn't sit well with surname).

Rhubarbgarden Thu 06-Jan-11 22:27:23

...does the hula

Love it!

It's quite a pretty look and sound but unfortunately, it's too much of a character name IMO. It's heavy and tired, like a perfume from the 80's, once loved, but now unsophisticated compared to modern fragrances.

Once different and beautiful but now a has-been name best consigned to the "pet's names" corner.

Common as fuck quite popular

LetThereBeRock Thu 06-Jan-11 22:39:26

It's awful.

rachxx Thu 06-Jan-11 22:45:46

there were less than a hundred named last year,so didnt think it was common?

OK, not common in the popular sense but common in the attributed to a certain bracket of society sense grin

doesn't jessie wallace have a tallulah

I'll have that song from Bugsy Malone stuck in my head for days now.

Deciduousblonde Fri 07-Jan-11 10:28:15

Indeed...Bugsy Malone! I quite like it though, and there's plenty of nicknames to choose from too.

theagedparent Fri 07-Jan-11 10:32:36

I have a Tallulah and am most certainly not common x x

SirBoobAlot Fri 07-Jan-11 12:34:54

Terrible.

MarniesMummy Fri 07-Jan-11 12:37:43

It's a winner! Just out there and edgy enough, but people ought to be able to spell it.

(Let's just hope she doesn't mind a lifetime of Bugsy Malone being sung to her!)

it is my next child (which I am not ever having but you can still dream) name.

diddl Fri 07-Jan-11 12:56:28

Don´t hate it, but prefer Tabitha.

MarniesMummy Fri 07-Jan-11 14:48:27

ditvonteesed - it is my next child (which I am not ever having but you can still dream) name.

I've got one of those too. He's a little boy called Inigo Daniel,(or Daniel Inigo depending on whether DP wins in his quest to cll his son Daniel). grin

He's a lovely wee thing and doesn't keep me up all night, need his nappy changed or demand my attention constantly.

Sorry, I think it sounds ridiculous on both a baby and an adult.

Komondor Fri 07-Jan-11 16:04:41

You have got to be stunning to pull the name off. On someone quite plain looking I think Tallulah would be rediculous.

MistletoeMush Fri 07-Jan-11 16:08:42

I quite like it esp with Tally as a nm. Its quite unusual but not completely unheard of and suits both adults and children imo.
