What are people's thoughts on Lola? I keep going hot and cold on it...

CointreauVersial Fri 08-Apr-16 18:21:04

There are lots about!

bloodypassword Fri 08-Apr-16 18:21:53

Love it. Beautiful name smile

barnet Fri 08-Apr-16 18:23:01

I think it's cool and sweet.
But I know it got very popular a few years back and maybe got overused.

HarlettOScara Fri 08-Apr-16 18:24:05

She was a showgirl.
Yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there...

Sorry not helpful but I love the name but couldn't bring myself to use it for my DD so I used it for a dog instead.

Afreshstartplease Fri 08-Apr-16 18:25:23

Did consider it for dd now 3

Still considering it now if this baby is a girl

I cant help but think of a transvestite in a night club.

Sorry sad

sonlypuppyfat Fri 08-Apr-16 18:27:47

Well Barry manilow liked it

TinklyLittleLaugh Fri 08-Apr-16 18:29:02

It makes me think transvestite.

Cosycottage4 Fri 08-Apr-16 18:30:07

Harlett that is my concern!!! I do love how it sounds though...

Cosycottage4 Fri 08-Apr-16 18:31:47

Oh no, more in the tranny camp confused

TinklyLittleLaugh Fri 08-Apr-16 18:34:12

Nothing against trannies mind. Go for it if you like it (in the Kinks song she is a nice tranny anyway).

Sophronia Fri 08-Apr-16 18:34:24

It makes me think transvestite too, unfortunately.

MuttonCadet Fri 08-Apr-16 19:06:21

Showgirl rather than transvestite, but not great really.

I know a few dog Lola's (mostly Bulldogs)

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Fri 08-Apr-16 20:01:13

One of the worse girls names there is.

MrsLeighHalfpenny Fri 08-Apr-16 20:06:25

El Oh El Ay Lola!

Sounds like a prostitute's name IMO. Sorry OP

Cosycottage4 Fri 08-Apr-16 20:39:56

Right thanks everyone, it's officially off the list! grin

MissusWrex Fri 08-Apr-16 20:43:06

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl, la la la la laaaa la.

Sorry, whenever I hear that name that bloody song gets stuck in my head.

I'll be humming it all night now 😂

mrsschu Fri 08-Apr-16 20:51:25

Not keen at all. Also makes me think of the Kinks song (which is a good song to be fair!). There are quite a few around at the moment and I think it will date badly.

AutumnRose1988 Fri 08-Apr-16 21:25:45

I keep having Lola suggested to me by friends as a possible baby name-to me it's too corny and almost sounds a bit...daft. It doesn't really transition to adulthood I don't think X

Botchit Fri 08-Apr-16 21:27:28

Sweet name. Very trendy about 9 years ago.

Floggingmolly Fri 08-Apr-16 21:33:22

There are loads of them round here. I don't like it much, I have to admit. It always puts me in mind of Lolita...

BartBaby Sun 10-Apr-16 10:49:08

I live it and it was on my list. However dh vetoed it for the above reasons which is fair enough

ABitAsleep Mon 11-Apr-16 13:37:05

I don't like it, sorry!

But i have heard a few Lola's with the nn Lollie, which i do quite like actually!

SomedayMyPrinceWillCome Mon 11-Apr-16 13:39:15

There are 2 Lola s in my son's nursery class
