I'm a 32 yr old female and love being a Hulda. I was named after my great-great grandmother who came to the USA in the 1800's from Sweden. I like having a very unique name. I have never met another Hulda. I always get asked how to pronounce my name and once people hear it pronounced properly they like my name too.

In Flannery O'Connor's short story "Good Country People," the main character changes her name from Joy to Hulda because it was the ugliest name she could think of and wanted to spite her mother. It reminds her mother of the "blank hull of a battleship."
No, her name was Hulga in the movie not Hulda.
