Gender: F Meaning of Toula: "light" Origin of Toula: Greek, feminization of Fotis or Fotios

Toula came to light as the name of the heroine of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," short for Fotoula, a feminine version of Fotis or Fotios which means light. Toula is cute -- and indeed can be used as a short form of many feminine Greek names -- but it's hard to imagine Fotoula making it in the U.S. The multiethnic Tula may be a better way to go.
