Like it but all I think about is that song from bugsy malone ..

Sophronia Sat 21-Jan-17 12:35:03

I like it spelled Tallulah

thebakerwithboobs Sat 21-Jan-17 12:39:54

Two Ls is better I think but lovely-I used to teach a Tallulah and she was known as Lulu. Sweet girl. Not that that has any bearing!

TDmoocher Sat 21-Jan-17 13:23:13, prefer Tallulah spelling

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 21-Jan-17 13:24:55

I like it, Tallulah.
I also like Loula.

Stonewash Sat 21-Jan-17 13:49:59

I like it.

bakingaddict Sat 21-Jan-17 13:53:49

Honestly......its a wee bit chavvy

SaltyMyDear Sat 21-Jan-17 13:54:41

Was tallulah in bugs you malone a prostitute?

MitzyLeFrouf Sat 21-Jan-17 14:50:45

I've always thought Tallulah sounds quite exotic dancer-y but apparently there was an ancient Irish saint of that name! Maybe she used to dance for the monks and then saw the (holy) light...

I also prefer it spelt Tallulah. I love it gor others but wouldn't call a DD of my own it for some reason. Lula is a nice nn.

marmitecrumpets Sat 21-Jan-17 15:30:28

I love Tallulah. Go for it! Xxx

AuntiePenguin Sat 21-Jan-17 15:35:58

Can't hear it without thinking of (and probably singing) the bugsy malone song, but I guess that won't be so popular in her age group?

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Sat 21-Jan-17 15:38:49

Salty lounge singer and hostess I thought.

rollonthesummer Sat 21-Jan-17 15:39:29

It makes me think of Bugatti Malone but I really love that film so it's not such an awful thing!!

Lulu is a cute name too.

MitzyLeFrouf Sat 21-Jan-17 15:41:08

I can't imagine the green light being given to an 11 year old playing that character these days. It was a bit ambiguous and definitely very adult.

Keepingupwiththejonesys Sat 21-Jan-17 15:46:43

Nope, really don't like it.

EmmaC78 Sat 21-Jan-17 18:54:20

I don't really like it either. It isn't the worst name but not one I would ever pick.

Pluto30 Sat 21-Jan-17 20:49:10

I don't like it because it doesn't roll off the tongue very well.

I think Elon Musk's ex-wife is a Tallulah.

PeggyMitchell123 Sat 21-Jan-17 20:53:13

I think it's a nice name. Would never use it myself though, it's my mum's cat name grin

Couple of girls at ds's school called Tallulah and they're very sweet and not chavvy at all.

Raines100 Sat 21-Jan-17 21:13:47

I've always thought it was a joke name for a pet or a doll. It's ridiculously frilly. I think you'd struggle to be taken seriously with a moniker like that. I wonder if the British registrars would let you have 'Does-The-Hula-In-Hawaii' for a middle name? The Kiwis didn't go for it.

AshesandDust Sat 21-Jan-17 21:20:16

I think it's a lovely name, it's one of my all time favourites.

TheNotoriousRBG Sat 21-Jan-17 21:29:48

I love it but wasn't brave enough to use it. Tally and Lulu are both cute nicknames. In the end it was just too cutesy. I'd go for a stronger name.
