In fact, I noticed that her mother called her dad Morris. But it means nothing. His name may be Turanga Morris or Morris Leela, though the last one sounds unattractive for my Russian ear
BUT! Do you remember the last scene when her mother put a box with a birthday gift for Leela?
It was signed: “Happy birthday Leela”. It became clear for me that Leela is her name. Because parents would never sign the birthday present for their beloved daughter using her FAMILY name.
(I hope I say it in the right way and you understand what I mean)
Got it in one, Loki.
Up until "The Problem with Popplers" I'd always assumed Leela was her first name anyway.
