Isha Zonah Vachalala Lo Yikachu

אִשָּׁה זֹנָה וַחֲלָלָה לֹא יִקָּחוּ (Vayikra 21:7)

Look at the roshei teivos (first letter of each word) - אזולי - AZULAI. Some suggest that this is the origin of the name Azulai, and it is a family name for kohanim. I heard once, but I haven't found confirmation, that it is a family name for chalalim (so people know of their psul).
