I am starting to really like this name, Tallulah. what do you think?

Other options are Carmen or Violet (too popular?). but Tallulah is my fave smile

On its own it's a great name. But all I hear is the song from Bugsy Malone. So couldn't use it for that reason.

I adore Violet but it's popularity put me off too.

It's a lovely name and I really like Lula and Tally as nick-names

SuperBeagle Fri 03-Mar-17 20:12:46

I don't dislike it... but it kind of reminds me of a duck. Was there a duck character name Tallulah somewhere? hmm

I think I prefer the spelling Talulah, like Elon Musk's wife.

I know a Tallulah! It's a great name. Can also be shortened to Tal.

I love it. DS2 would have been Tallulah if he was a girl.

WLmum Fri 03-Mar-17 20:21:29

Love it. I wanted it but meany pants dh vetoed.

Ah-hah! That would be it. smile

It's too frilly for me too.

And reminds me of the song in Bugsy Malone, and the one about Tallulah does the Hula...

Not my style.

Prefer Carmen or Violet.

CPtart Fri 03-Mar-17 20:29:32

Don't like it. A silly frilly little girl's name. Couldn't imagine or take seriously an adult called Tallulah.

Violetcharlotte Fri 03-Mar-17 20:33:17

I like it smile

MissJSays Fri 03-Mar-17 20:36:44

I really like it, think Lula or Lulu is a really cute NN too. Shame my DP wrote it off as soon as I suggested it!

ToastVacuum Fri 03-Mar-17 21:38:52

I like it.

Natalia, Aurora, Amanda and Delilah are nice too, with a similar rhythm.

When DS is being a drama llama we say 'ok Tallulah, keep your wig on...' Must be thinking of Tallulah Bankhead.

Joeybee Fri 03-Mar-17 23:27:32

It's a bit too out-there for me. But it's a nice name, if you're brave enough, then go for it.
I love Violet, but it's popularity has put me off a little.

BackforGood Fri 03-Mar-17 23:49:23

Really don't like it. Do feel the need to sing the Bugsy Malone song whenever I hear it. As other posters have said, it sounds far too 'frilly' and fussy to me.

HotSince82 Fri 03-Mar-17 23:54:40

Does the hula.
From Hawaii.

Prefer Carmen or Violet, personally.

witwootoodleoo Sat 04-Mar-17 00:13:10

Bugsy Malone, strippers and a lifetime of having to spell your name out to people

Ohyesiam Sat 04-Mar-17 00:14:38

There sure 2 Tallulah's in m by find very small class at primary school
I think we may have reached peak Tallulah.

Sophronia Sat 04-Mar-17 00:44:45

I like it

PollytheDolly Sat 04-Mar-17 00:52:02

I like it. My DH calls my DD (his DSD) that...she's 20 and known her since 17 and it's nothing like her real name.

She rolls her eyes but loves it really.
