Honest opinions about the name Lola?
I've loved this name for so long, and I got excited when I saw it dropped from #211 to #243 on the popularity list. I have a 7 month old daughter named Rowan and when I think of another daughter in the future, Lola is the only name I get excited about. But every time I mention it, people either go "Eh, it's okay" or they start singing Copa Cabana. What are your honest opinions on the name? If you met an actual little girl named Lola, what would you immediately think?

I absolutely love Lola! I didn't used to like it at all, but then I met the cutest little girl named Lola a few years ago at work, and she just made it work so well. I can't imagine a Lola that doesn't charm her way into everyone's hearts. It's so sweet and spunky and I adore it. It does seem a bit cutesy so I would use it as a NN for something (Charlotte nn Lola is my choice), but I would absolutely love meeting another little Lola. I love it.
Rowan and Lola are very cute together! Since Rowan is a bit unisex, I like the idea of another unisex name with it, like Rowan and Harlow (nn Lola)... just as they are, I think I would assume Lola was a girl and Rowan was a boy.

Honestly, I don't like it at all. I've warmed up to it- I used to absolutely hate it- but I just don't think it ages well. I do like it for a kid, but it seems almost too spunky- I can only picture a little girl with lots of Moxie, not a strong adult woman. I know lots of pets and inanimate objects (like guitars and cars and stuff- I have strange friends) named Lola, and it just seems very young and nicknamey. I really like Leila/Laila/Layla and Lily, but I just don't care for any of the other double-L girls' names. And like Ashley, I' assume that Rowan was a boy with a sister named Lola.

I think Lola is beautiful but when I think about a professional adult with a career, I just don't see it. I love it for a child and also for an older person sitting on their stoop in their rocking chair but it's the in between adult stage that I'm struggling with...
