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.Wholocked, history and chemistry loving teenberry (16).Hoping to be a mummy in the very distant future.

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.
