Honest name opinion

So there is a name that I like but am scared to use because I have only heard it once. I think its cute but still not 100% sold on it for a girl


Tula (pronounced TOO-LA)

honest thoughts- I promise I wont be offended if you dont like it!!

It reminds me of a name for a dog Sorry, it's cute, it just doesn't sound human-ish to me

Dont be sorry, DP actually said the exact same thing to me last night. The offical comment was "i think its really cute but its more of a cute name for a dog, and it doesnt go with our last name"

LOL!

Honestly...

Please don't.

Said as gently as possible. You asked for honest opinions, and that was what I first thought.

I love both your Natalie and Norah contenders!!! I don't think Tula is bad but with the way it is pronounced I just think of people calling her a tool. Like...ugh, so and so is such a tool.

I love it, it reminds me of a lullaby Ladysmith Black Mambazo sings called Thula Mtwana (Be Still My Child). It's a beautiful lullaby, and the name is beautiful too. I love names that end in "la" anyways.
