Q and A
So I love learning about the etymology of names and I thought it would be really entertaining to look up names from Sula because Toni Morrison chooses such peculiar names for her characters. So i googled the name Sula and found this, Sula \s(u)-la\ as a girl’s name is a variant of Shulamith (Hebrew) and Ursula (Scandinavian, Latin), and the meaning of Sula is “peace; little she-bear”. (source: http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Sula)
I thought it was interesting how Sula’s name means peace when she causes so much uproar in the town. I personally can’t see a connection in Sula’s name meaning and her actions throughout the novel. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
