    I can't really see the name Ulalume working here in the US. I personally am not a fan of it, but, again, I live in the US.

    NN possibilities: Ula/Eula, Ullie, Lumie, LaLu, LuLu, Lalum, Lalumie

    A girl named Ulalume would be sophisticated, foreign, and fun in my mind. She'd also go by a nickname most of the time.

    Personally, I like Lalumie the best

    It looks so beautiful, but I find it kind of difficult to say. It's not that the pronunciation itself is difficult, it's just that the ul/lu sounds are a bit awkward to say back to back.

    It seems like it could be very pretty, but it's also very difficult for me to say :/ I agree with myosotis - it's the ul/lu that makes it awkward. Lulu and Lula would make nice nicknames for it though, but I'm not sure how I picture one, perhaps maybe like Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter?

    Didn't Poe make it up? It's very haunting. It reminds me too much of the cat call "oo-lah-lah" to be used, but that might just be in English speaking countries (thought it's French in origin). It is a bit of a tongue twister to say, as well. I can't separate the name from the poem, because I don't have any other frame of reference for it, so it's ghostly to me. Tragic and cold. Leaves blowing in the wind and the moon. Rhymes with tomb.

    I think it could be a very interesting middle, and I'd love to meet a cat named Ulalume.

    The only other nickname I can think of that isn't listed is Uma. Or perhaps Lalie, rhymes with lolli (pop). Maybe even Lola? That last one might be a stretch I suppose.

    You might like some other "Poe" names.
