Personal experiences with the name Lulu: | Edit

My name is Luna Celeste - a very angelic name in my opinion, but I've always gone by Lulu. Now that I'm in college I go by Luna.

My name is Louise after my great-grandmother, so my dad decided to call me Lulu. The name just kind of stuck.

My name is Lulu, and I always got "Where's Tubby?"

One of the couples in my birthing class named their daughter Lulu, which I think as an independent name sounds silly and unprofessional. How do they expect her to be taken seriously in life?
^You're silly and unprofessional.

People will say "she's a Lulu!" And she will also get "Where's Tubby?"

My youngest sister was registered as the first Lulu in Argentina, EVER! Born in 2005, she set off a record as the first one. Everyone asks if her real name is Lucy or Lourdes, but she just smiles and says they'll have to find out for themselves. Eventually, they find out that it's her real name and question her until she groans and leaves.
^Lol, incorrect. There were tons of Lulus born in the 1980s in Argentina.

My older sister goes by Lulu (her birth name is Lauren, but I've never heard anyone- not even our parents, call her that), she's constantly being told that 'that's an adorable name!' but she is a very 'cute' type of person, so it doesn't bother her. She has her own kids now and I don't think she's ever considered going by anything else. My sisters and I all have fairly unusual names (I'm Ophelia and my other older sister is Cecliy) and we use our names to our advantage.
