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. A UK retail chain was criticised in January 2008 for branding as "Lolita" a bed aimed at young girls.
