"I'm 82 soon to be 83.My name is Leola Lee. Many miss pronounce my name, but I never correct them, unless it's important. I never cared for nicknames, but some call me Lee. When I got married my husbands family asked if it was okay to call me Lee, I said yes. I wasn't named after anyone I knew and never knew anyone named Leola. I'm glad to see there is still some Leola's" Sep. 26, 2018:
"Leola is my sister's name, she will be turning 50 the day after tomorrow. she was named after our great grandmother, who was named after a child in her neighborhood drowned and the mother asked my great-great grandmother to name her baby after her. her name is distinctive and i have only heard her name called out in a crowd once, and they weren't calling for her. i love to tease her because she has to spell not only her first name but her last when ever she talks to someone over the phone."

"Hey! My name is Leola and I am 15. I was named after my great, great grandmother. I absolutely love my name. It's so unique and I've never met anyone with my name. I don't really like nicknames that are related to my name, I don't why, but I still have people try and call me them. Typically I get Leo, Lola (I hate when people call me that), Lee (my middle name, lol), Leoly, Leela. I only like Leo and Lee. A lot of times when someone is reading my name they always mispronounce it by saying it by going Lae-o-la instead of Lee-o-la (how it's actually pronounced)." Jul. 8, 2017:

My names Leola, and I am 15. I am named after my great grandma.
I have a lot of different nicknames. Such as: Lee, Lilo, Leo, Leoly, Lola, and Lee Lee. I absolutely love my name.
I have never met anyone who had the same name as me.
People usually don't spell my name wrong, but every once in a while some one will miss pronounce it. The correct way to say my name is: "Lee ola"" Jul. 31, 2009:

I have a lot of nicknames also, Leelo, Leeo, Lee, Leela, Leeolabeth, Lola, etc. I am not a huge fan of my name, mostly because a lot of people have trouble pronouncing and/or spelling it.
