What do you think?

I know of only one, who is in her late thirties and spells it with one 'L'. I really like it. Your comments? x

AWFUL.

Cute nick name for a toddler though. What about Louise Gabriella or Louise Estella or Eloise Bella

Or Lucy Eleanor nn luela

PS, I know why I don't like it. DId you ever see that American cartoon for adults 'king of the hill'. There was a character in that and her name was something like luella. She was a bit simple, sweet......... there was some hint that she was a product of incest.

I know one who is about 2, her mother is Canadian and her dad Texan - she has big blue eyes and blonde curls and a very strange canadian/texas/wiltshire cross accent developing smile

Great name! Unusual but pronounceable. Lulu for short!

It hasn't done Luella Bartlett the handbag designer any harm

its difficult to pronounce. Otherwise not bad. Btw what does it mean?

I like it, but I would think you've probably named her after the designer.

I like it too.

It's awful. It's a bit 'Jim Bob,Mary Sue,Bobbi Jo. A bit 'redneck' really. It also has a rather ugly sound imho.

I like Luella.

My cat was Fable Luella. If I could have got DH on board DD2 would have been Fable Luella.

Reminds me of 'King of the Hill'/Redneck America too. Shame really, as it is a pretty name if you can get past those mental images.

It's really unpleasant.

I quite like it actually. You might find people pronounce it differently with the one 'l', e.g. 'lou-ay-la' rather than 'lou-ell-a'

It's a bit hillbilly for me, sorry.

Reminds me of Cruella.
