First makes me think of the fish killing girl and then of a real life Darla I knew who was quite the witch with a B.

I think this name is very cute and sweet. It reminds me of Darla Hood from "The Little Rascals".

Brings to mind the fish murderess little girl from Finding Nemo, toothpaste, or a '70s hair-poofed rolling-around-the-diner-in-skates character straight from the musical Grease. Not my cup of tea, to say the least.

Well, I don't like Darla because it was invented for prissy, tyrannical girls in cartoons, and that's what it makes me think of. I don't like the sound, either. Darlene is better, but not my kind of name.

Revolting? Really? To each their own, I guess. I think Darla is, well, darling.

It's one letter away from Carla which is a classic. It could be a lot worse.
