What is this child's name?

The attached census record is part of the 1910 DeSoto Parish, LA enumeration.  It shows the family of L. J. (Lafayette Jackson) Coffee.  The enumeration records that Mrs. L. J. Coffee was the manager of a boarding house while her husband, L. J., enumerated second, was an engineer at a "planing" [?] plant. 

Children in the household were George, a 6 yr. old son born in Texas; Nellie, a 3 mo. old daughter born in Louisiana; and Lola, a niece [daughter of Lafayette's brother, Albert], age 15, born in Arkansas.  It is the second child (after George) whose name I cannot read.  She is a female, age 3, born in Texas.

Please drop me a note at the above e-mail address if you can decipher the name.
