Pronounced Loo-Ella.

I met a 2 year-old called this the other day and have fallen in love. What do you all think?

Beautiful actually. Never heard it before.

Luella Bartley springs to mind for me, she makes fab handbags grin Nice name too!

mayanna123 Sun 11-Sep-11 15:21:16

Lovely, I've never met anyone with that name! Great choice imo!

lizzieloubee1 Sun 11-Sep-11 15:32:53

I don't like it. Not sure why, but it does't sit well with me.

It's horrid,and very redneck.Think King of The Hill.

It's OK, although I prefer Louisa.

Very pretty. I like girls' names ending in -a. Also like Louisa, but Luella is less widely used already, which is nice.

poppydaisy Sun 11-Sep-11 16:24:51

What does 'redneck' mean confused?

Oh, thanks Leonie. See, I think Luella is lovely and elegant, but Lou-Ella is awful.

Nikki82 Sun 11-Sep-11 19:18:59

I know a baby Luella. Fab name.

Loella was very popular in the 1880s, often see it on census returns!

pinkgirlythoughts Sun 11-Sep-11 19:37:52

I think Llewella is a nicer spelling, as Loella does look a little redneck-y to me.

Much prefer Ella.

See, I think Luella is lovely and different, whereas Ella is so widely used already and will probably date more.

PippiLongBottom Mon 12-Sep-11 21:11:45

It just brings to mind Cruella.

There is a lovely children's book called Pappa Pellerin's Daughter - the heroine is a very strong girl called Loella.
