Comments and insights on the name Beulah

My mother's name is Beulah. The pronunciation key is incorrect. Her name is pronounced b+you+la. She was born in 1941. I think it's a beautiful name.

Unlike Edna, I don't think this sounds old fashioned

Reminds me of Ferris Bueller! Ack.

How about Buell Gibbons?

His name was Euell Gibbons, not Buell

Beulah is music to my ears. It's old-fashioned and unusual in the best kind of way. When I hear it, I think ... Roaring Twenties ... turbans and peacock feathers ... garden parties ... Don't ask me why.

Personal experiences with the name Beulah

My parents hung me with this name at birth, and I have always hated it. People have made fun of it all my life. I had it legally changed a few years ago. I don't think there's anything pretty about it.

BNM, how are you doing? I'm the one who had the horrible surname, we used to correspond on Baby Name Reviews. I hope everything's going well with you!

The name has aways intrigued me because of a great-grandmother with a tragic story.

When I was little (in the 50's) there was a radio program called The Beulah Show!
