Like Tallulah but Elula. Ya know?

That is my assumption, anyway.

Just like it looks I reckon, as above.

Quite nice.

All I know is that it is Jewish. I like it, it is different but not overly so.

Elula does the hula! I've heard of Eulalia before, but not Elula. Not sure what I think of it.

+1 with Blondiebear.

I'm not sure about it either, but I think it's because I've never heard of it before.
Who knows, it might grow on me (not that it matters one jot to Isla Fisher what I think of her baby's name!)

Off topic: How cute is Rafael?! Congratulations Blondiebear, he's a stunner! I hope Claudia is enjoying her new role as big sister!  wink.gif

i don't mind it but it's a bit fluffy and insubstantial to me...

I don't really like it. It's hard to get your mouth around.  And as Bluey said, a bit insubstantial - for my tastes anyway.

I'd prefer Eulalia.

I really find it unappealing, along with Olive. I prefer Eulalia!

I find it hard to pronounce too.  I don't like Eulalia either.  The actress Marcia Gay Harden has a DD called Eulala Grace - which I think is the best version of the name.

I love it! I think it is lovely and soft and feminine. Doesn't really 'go' with Olive but that doesn't matter too much IMO.

#17 Prancer is coming

Posted 04 March 2011 - 09:07 PM

I like it.  It's not than common, but at the same time is a name in line with her beliefs.  I would not know how to pronouce  Eulalia with that spelling.

Totally agree with plainjayne that it does not go with Olive.  I think it is a lot nicer than Olive anyway.

I think it's lovely, very pretty.

The christmas cards will be a mouthful. Isla, Elula, Olive. Too many 'l's and vowels.

Love it original.gif

They are Jewish so no Christmas cards to worry about!! Tounge1.gif

If I knew how to pronounce it I could form an opinion. original.gif
