"My name is Darla and it's annoying when people think it's Carla but I like my name because it sounds like how I am. Its feminine without being too flowery." Jul. 17, 2020:
"I'm a Darla also and I love my name! I didn't like my middle name which is Jean. I was always called Jeannie Weannie. Once I worked with 2 others Darla's. But other than that I have only met a few." Jul. 19, 2019:
"For years I thought I would never forgive my mom for giving me this name. I used to have to spell it out for everyone...Carla with a D, and that got real old, real fast! And I hated it that I could never find anything with DARLA printed on it, like key chains, novelty items, etc. There are always tons of different names on them, but not mine. My mom said she got the name from a love novel she was reading while she was pregnant. Although my dad's name was Ernest, she decided to stick with the letter D for all of us kids. Her name being Dawn, my older brother Dean, me Darla, and my younger brother Dale. I've even dated a guy by the name of Dar. Only as I grew older did I start to not mind the name I was given. And now that I have a gazillion 'Darla' friends on FB, I've come to be proud of it. My mom used to think it was a unique name, but she would be surprised right now to find out that there are many more of us out there today. R.I.P. Mom I love you, and miss you more and more every day." Mar. 7, 2019:

"My name's Darla and it's very rare and old now and the 2016 generation puts it in a weird accent and overexaggerates the R and L so I go by my middle name, Chloe. It's very annoying to hear also." Jan. 6, 2016:
