Mmm... Not sure. Have you been reading the new Dan Brown? There's a Nola in that!

The only Nola I know is my Mum's age and it's short for Finnola/Finnoula.
I'm not keen

It would put me off that her whole life whenever anyone shounted 'NO', she'd be thinking they were shouting at her - IYKWIM.

DH wants this for our DD because his grandad was called Noel. I am not keen myself, so we won't be using it.

Not sure about Nola, although I have thought about Ola.

There's also a Nola in Woody Allen's film Match Point. Wonder if it's more of an American name?

The main female character in "Showboat" is Nola, but it's short for Magnolia. I think it sounds a bit "made up" as a name on its own. What about Noelle, if DH wants to use his grandad's name?

Urghh! Noelle is even worse, reminds me of runny noses for some strange reason. No it's definitely not happening for us-DH can whistle (can you tell I'm very hormonal and fed up with 3 weeks to go lol!?)

Would use it just as 'Nola' on its own, but just not sure about it. Seems to provoke mixed reactions here as well. Hmm, Lola might be an idea too- or else Nina. Phew, glad I still have few months to go..

I quite like it, I prefer Nona/Nonah - it means 'ninth' though and I'm not planning on having that many!

I know one aged 2. It's not my usual style, but I really like it actually. I like how it's easy to spell and pronounce yet it's not super popular.
