Right...don't laugh!

I really love the name Tallulah! I've loved it for years, but in recent years a few celebs have used it, which to me has made it a celeb/chav name?! So, it has slightly put me off.

What are your thoughts, however harsh! Oh the Bugsy Malone thing doesn't bother me! rofl.

I think its a dinky name - but it always reminds me of that bit in 'cool runnings'

"lets call it tallulah... it was my mothers name" grin

but I do think its a cute little name thou smile

I know a little girl named Tallulah and I ALWAYS start singing "my name is...." from Bugsy to myself every time I see her.

Reginaphilangy Sat 13-Sep-08 23:46:13

I don't like it. Sorry.

We have a Tallulah at dd's school. She's not chavvy - more pseudo arty. If you like it for it - you'll only regret it if you don't.

unknownrebelbang Sat 13-Sep-08 23:46:55

I'm singing it now...

KAEKAE Sun 14-Sep-08 01:01:17

lol as I say I really don't mind the bugsy Molone connection at all. Sing away! grin
I always tend to think of Tallulah Bankhead....not sure if that's such a good thing though! lmao.

I like it, i think it is lovely

I remember years ago reading about a model who had sex-changed from boy to girl - and as a girl had changed her name to Tallulah - that would put me off but no reason it should affect your choice!

Great name, I like it.
Just don't call her - Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii!

sunshineonarainyday Sun 14-Sep-08 06:47:09

It's cute, I like it

Tommy Sun 14-Sep-08 06:56:37

I don't like it at all I'm afraid - but if you like it, go for it

Buda Sun 14-Sep-08 07:42:03

There is a Tallulah at DS's school - head's DD in fact. She is also known at Tilly and Luly.

Buda Sun 14-Sep-08 07:42:21

Oh - and I think it is quite cute.

iwantasecondone Sun 14-Sep-08 07:43:36

It was on my short list til I married someone with an unsuitable surname for it. Lovely!

Majeika Sun 14-Sep-08 07:46:22

I like it

and there are lots of nnames for it too

FairLadyRantALot Sun 14-Sep-08 10:26:54

Tallulah will always make me think of Maisie Mouse

ethanchristopher Sun 14-Sep-08 11:38:52

i know an emo tallulah

who is an attention seeker and cuts her wrists and has carved "fat" into her belly

im sure they arent all like this tho...

giraffescantdancethetango Sun 14-Sep-08 11:41:01

I know quite a few Tallulahs (nursery age chuildren) if you like it go for it.

frankbestfriend Sun 14-Sep-08 11:44:07

Tallulah is a lovely name with endless potential for nice nick names, especially Tally which I think is fab for an older girl.

MrsMattie Sun 14-Sep-08 12:12:39

It's a bit of a 'stage name'.

I'd feel sorry for a chubby/unattaractive/tomboyish/bookish/plain etc etc Tallulah. It's very glamourous and camp.

wellbalanced Sun 14-Sep-08 13:20:01

Ive looked after 2 Tallulah's which puts me off the name but i also am not keen.

lou33 Sun 14-Sep-08 13:29:15

dd2 is a tallulah daisy

I quite like it. Not sure I'd use it myself but I think it's pretty. And agree - short names like Luly, Lulu, Lula, Tally etc are nice if Talulah becomes a bit of a mouthful.
If you've always loved it, then just DO IT!
