Lola
by Los Brincos
If my mom only knew how many songs I've juked and jamed inspired by her. This is my 4th or 5th. :D #NamesOfGalsWeek

Lola is not a common name up here and my mom is the only Lola I know. Sometimes when she introduces her self people look at her with disbelief. My mom also hates "Copacabana". I bet that song completely destroyed her relationship with Barry Manilow, who would have been her kind of guy otherwise. :D

Wiki: "Lola is a feminine given name, a short form of the Spanish name Dolores, meaning "sorrows", a name taken from a title of the Virgin Mary: Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, or Our Lady of Sorrows. Lola may also be used as a short form of the unrelated German name Aloisia or the English name Lolicia. The name Lola is also common in Africa; in Nigeria, many feminine names are shortened to Lola, such as Temilola, Omolola or Damilola. Lola (Tajik for tulip) is also a feminine name in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan. It is derived from the Persian lâleh. The short form Lola has been rising in popularity in several countries in the past decade.

Though the name originated with a title for the Blessed Virgin Mary, Lola has also acquired a number of contrasting sensual associations. Authors Pamela Redmond Satran and Linda Rosenkrantz noted in their 2008 book Cool Names for Babies that the name has a sultry image and that people associate the name with the song "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets" from the musical Damn Yankees, in which the character of Lola is the Devil's "best homewrecker." The name also has associations with the Irish-born Lola Montez, who became famous in the nineteenth century as an actress, Spanish dancer, courtesan and mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria.

Lolita, a diminutive form of the name, is associated with the 1955 novel Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov about a pedophile's obsession with a 12-year-old girl, Lolita. "Lolita" has since become a term for a sexually precocious young girl. In 1992, 16-year-old Amy Fisher gained notoriety as the "Long Island Lolita" after she shot her much older lover's wife. The name's sexually charged image is also due to associations with Lola, a 1970 song by The Kinks about a young man's encounter with a transvestite named Lola."

My mom is 65 and nothing like that. She's more like a tulip. :D
