    Name Meaning

    Apparently a late 20th-century creation, formed from the first syllable of Zoë with the ending -la, common in girls' names. It coincides in form with the surname of the French novelist Émile Zola ( 1840–1902 ), who was of Italian descent, but it is unlikely that he had any influence on the use of the name.
