I really like this name. DH thinks it's a bit too 'out there'. I'm after opinions on what other people think before I try and convince him otherwise.

'out there'? Really?
Fwiw, I think it's a lovely name smile

Love it

I love it.

It's not top 300 and I've only met one child with the name (several adults) but I still wouldn't call it 'out there'

I have no idea why it's not more popular, I think it's much prettier than Julia.

Actually prefer the spelling Juliette but realise that's a bit fancy for many people's tastes.

Lovely name! I wouldn't say it was "out there", it's a perfectly normal name, just underused at the moment.

I think it's lovely, not too popular but certainly not ridiculously unusual.

Agree not "out there" at all - lovely classic name. It's DD's middle name

Funnylittleturkishdelight Sat 06-Oct-12 16:35:08

Love it!

Not 'out there' at all although men can be more conservative when it comes to picking names. I am surprised to hear it's outside of the top 300. Lovely and pretty and under used. And it's certainly got literary credentials smile

How on earth is Juliet 'out there'? Is your other half one of the Charlotte/Emily/Sophie brigade?

Love love love

flopsy1974 Sat 06-Oct-12 19:05:51

Yes Agatha, I think he is grin

I like it - but then I would because it's my daughter's name.

picnicbasketcase Sat 06-Oct-12 19:47:24

Love it, not out anywhere as far as I can see.

nasara Sat 06-Oct-12 19:52:42

It's on our shortlist - not so keen on the potential nns though. I would spell it Juliet, too.

baskingseals Sat 06-Oct-12 21:18:40

i really like this name and don't see it as unusual at all.

persuade him.

I've just put this back on my list after your thread reminded me! I adore it. Classic and under-used, but not remotely crazy imho.

bradbourne Sun 07-Oct-12 21:06:08

If you already have a son named "Romeo", I'd avoid.

Otherwise, I think it's a lovely name. It's certainly not weird or "out there". Juliette is the French spelling - I prefer the normal one.

OrangeFireandGoldashes Sun 07-Oct-12 21:23:42

Beautiful name, timeless and classic.

amandine07 Mon 08-Oct-12 20:36:30

I love it!
It's on my baby name list and I'd spell it is beautiful, classic and timeless. I'd say go for it!
