La. Wa is only if you have an L in your name.

my friend when she was 5 was told by her parents that she might have to give herself an english name. What did she choose? Kelly. As in the Barbie. Now I call her Kelly-Wa because it sounds so bubbleheaded to tease her.

Lol. I'd be Laura-wa, or Hope-la. I like the rhythm of Hope-la. I don't know. Just sounds nice, ya know?
