Bula is a female first name.
Recently, the name Bula has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Bula. That means that a girl named Bula is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Bula.
It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Bula in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 86 women and girls named Bula, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 86 women and girls named Bula live in no more than 6 different states, including for example Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Tennessee. In all other 44 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Bula. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Bula lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Bula and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Bula relative to its female population is Oklahoma. And even there, only one in 125,939 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Bula.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: 3.2% of all common girls' names in the US begin with a B. This means that B as the first letter for girls' names is neither particularly common nor rare. The most common first letters of girls' names are A, S and M, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of girls' names.
With four letters, the name Bula is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
Thus, if 3.2% of all girls’ names start with a B, this initial letter is slightly less common than all other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are girls' names with B that are quite common in the U.S., the most common at present is Barbara.
If your name is Bula and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Bula, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.

These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
