Both lovely! I think I slightly prefer Ruby

Lola will still make people think of transvestites if they are a certain age (Grandparents).

Ruby by a long way.

Not Lola.

Both both make me think of names people give dogs like Pugs. Sorry blush

Ruby is lovely smile

They are both nice but I prefer Ruby. I know quite a few Lola's and a couple of Ruby's.

Ruby. Lola is ubiquitous and not particularly nice to begin with.

I agree they sound to me like puppy names...

Neither, sorry. Ruby is too popular. Lola- puppy's name.

Or Robina if you like that sort of sound and want something unusual.

I’m afraid Lola immediately makes me sing “she was a dancer”

Having said that I have one with a very popular name and one with a name everyone hates!! So whichever you love most

I like them both. Very pretty names. Can't really decide which I prefer. Do you have a middle name?

MixedClassBaby Fri 16-Apr-21 19:20:15

Lola - it's a lovely name.

Wasn't Lola a showgirl?

Troyhelena Fri 16-Apr-21 19:24:23

@Aprilshowersandhail she was

I’d choose Ruby definitely, still quite popular but less so than 10-15 years ago. I used to quite like Lola but then someone mentioned on a thread here that they associate it with Lolita so that really put me off the name, but maybe I’m easily swayed?

Ahbahbahbah Fri 16-Apr-21 19:32:36

You’re both right! A showgirl. I’ve been singing the wrong lyrics for years blush

Ruby. I do like Lola too actually but prefer Ruby.
