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.

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.

I have a friend named Darla. She's so delicate, pretty, and cute. (and hipster). It's a great name

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.
