I have this little sister, Lola. She is small and very funny. Charlie and Lola is a fun series targeted at preschool audiences, about a boy named Charlie and his sister, Lola. Featuring a unique "collage" animation style and catchy background themes, the show follows the pair as Charlie helps out his often rather independent-minded sister, Lola. Lola can be rather firm-minded when it comes to things like not wanting to go to bed, or doing things on her own, but Charlie doesn't mind too much --- he knows how to come up with a creative solution to help Lola see a different point of view. Viewers can accompany the two as they travel to fantastic worlds using their amazing imaginations. Charlie and Lola is based on a series of books by Lauren Child, who works on the show as an associate producer.

Charlie and Lola - Lola (given name) - Netflix
Lola is a female given name in German, Spanish and other language groups. It is a short form of the Spanish name Dolores, meaning “sorrows”, taken from one of the titles of the Virgin Mary: Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, or Our Lady of Sorrows. Lola is also a short form of the unrelated German name Aloisia. 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 لاله or lâleh. The short form Lola has been rising in popularity in several countries in the past decade. It was the 270th most popular name for baby girls born in the United States in 2007, up from 279th place in 2006 and 375th place in 2005; was ranked as the 64th most popular name for baby girls in Spain in 2006; was ranked as the 51st most popular name for baby girls in England and Wales in 2007; was the 17th most popular name for baby girls in France in 2004; and was the 20th most popular name for baby girls in Belgium in 2006. Though the name originated with a title for the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ, Lola has also acquired a number of contrasting sensual associations. American 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 is a Spanish diminutive form of Lola. The name is sometimes used as a term to indicate a sexually precocious girl, due to its association with the title character of Vladimir Nabokov's 1955 novel Lolita and its film adaptations in 1962 and 1997. The name's sexually charged image in certain countries is also due to associations with Lola, a 1970 song by The Kinks about a young man's encounter with a transvestite named Lola. The title character in the 1998 German feature film Run Lola Run may also have raised the name's profile, as has Lola, a clever and inquisitive child character in a recently published series of children's picture books by Lauren Child. The naming of several children of celebrities in the past decade has increased the popularity of the name. Madonna uses the nickname “Lola” for her daughter Lourdes Leon, born in 1996. Entertainers Kelly Ripa, Chris Rock, Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, Carnie Wilson and Annie Lennox all have daughters named Lola. The name was also used for a granddaughter of Camilla Parker Bowles.
