I love the meaning of this name and the fact that it’s the name of my special saint.

Any thoughts?

Noooooo she’s a beautiful saint and it also means little she bear - thanks to Poldark for that one!

I love it and still wish we'd used it for dd2, but was vetoed by dh. It would have suited her perfectly too!

Your child will be a sea witch to everyone else sorry. Little mermaid is too popular for people not to make that connection 😅

I don't have any strong feelings about the name either way, it definitely has Little Mermaid connections for me though. Isn't the live action version coming out next year as well? Could be pretty bad timing

Also, she may be a fat purple sea witch but she has the best song in all of Disney Grin

It's a great name op imo.

Just reminds me of FRIENDS - I didn't know about any other associations.

It's not my style of name, I don't really like it, but I don't think it's awful!

Little mermaid or George is the jungle.
I don't think it's a particularly nice name to say either.

Fat ugly sea witch. Sorry! The meaning you describe is beautiful but it doesn't roll off the tongue and sounds rather cumbersome.

I think it’s such a sweet name, but some people pronounce it “Ur-soo-la” instead of “Ur-syoo-la” which would annoy me.

It's an ugly name, and I can't see what's nice about the meaning, 'she bear', at all Confused

Nope. It’s either Phoebe’s not nice sister or evil, purple sea witch from The little mermaid.

Yeah sea witch and Phoebe's mean sister.

Also it reminds me of the anagram 'sula' meaning 'sweaty upper lip alert' 🤣
