I think it works better as a nickname. Traditionally, it's short for Dolores, but I've seen people consider it as a nickname for just about any name that has 'lo' in it.

There are actually two songs that use the name Lola (the Kinks song and the 'Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl' one), plus the book Lolita, and I think the name has a reputation for being kind of sexy. Just another reason I'd rather it be a nickname.

I think it's cute, but I don't know if I would use it.

I really love the nickname Lola. As a full name, I do find it rather sexy (L-O-L-A Lola, plus the showgirl, plus Lolita). However, I think it makes a darling nickname on a little girl. I guess I'd just prefer she have something to fall back on.

I think these could give you Lola:

Dolores
Charlotte
Lorelei
Penelope
Laura
Carlotta
Louisa
Eloise / Eloisa
Rosalind
Leona
Leola
Leonora / Leanora

Lollia



Now, those at the end are stretching it a bit, I know.

I'd give Lola a 6 out of 10. It really is too simple for my personal taste and sounds a bit childish to me. The sound is okay and it doesn't really bother me, so I don't mind it on others.

Lola is just NMSAA as a given name, but I'll admit it's a rather cute NN.

I think of it more as a pet name now. I wish it were illegal to give animals people names lol. But it is a pretty name!

I think it's such a cute name for a little girl, but I can't see it growing well with someone in a respectful job.

I like it, especially as a nickname for Charlotte. But it does make me think of the showgirl song.

I think it sounds pretty but the 'reputation' (songs) are all I can think of.

I only like it as a NN. It feels unsubstantial to me.
