    Be honest with me: Luella

    First post!

    Luella has recently made it onto my list. How bad is it, really? I love everything about it -- the repeated "L" sound (and it's much less common than Lila), the way it rolls off the tongue, the fact that it is short and sweet and yet still elegant, the nickname potential.

    I know it rhymes with Cruella (de Ville, as in the 101 Dalmations villain), but would that stop you from using it? Do kids these days even really watch that movie?

    Anyway, what do you think of Luella? Do you consider it usable? What would you think if you came across a little Luella? Any comments are welcome!

    Agree with pomme_de_guerre that it sounds a bit deep woods. If you like the Ls (I do as well), you might find some close alternatives that are a little more mainstream / current sounding /confidence inspiring in the namefinder if you search for names containing an L.

    I really like it!!
    I use to have Luelle on my list even though I'm not an "L" fan.
    Nn Lou is one of my favorite nns for a girl. So sweet.

    TBH I have never heard it anywhere apart from nameberry, and I'm glad you gave the pronunciation as for some reason when I read it I only hear it rhyming with Beulah!

    It's very much NMS, and I agree it sounds super country (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).
