Maurice said: It seems to me that the name has never been quite as
popular in other literatures, except in the Spanish one perhaps. Am I right?

I have also found the following using Google Books:

A story by Charles Fletcher Lummis called "Little Lolita," in his book New Mexico David.

Lola, A Tale of Gibralter (1877), by Arthur Griffiths, in which Lola is sometimes called Lolita.

"Lolita," a prose sketch in Mary Agnes Tincker's Autumn Leaves: Verse and Story (1899?)

No doubt there are more. And there are even more (many more) songs with Lolita in the title.
