I was at school with two Julias. I didn't much like either of them but I do think it's a lovely name.
One of the two was very posh, and her family all pronounced it Joolya, to the point where some of her friends spelt it like that.
The only problem with Julia is that a lot of people think it's actually Julie so get your name wrong. Our class teacher was always calling the other Julia, Julie. You'd think she'd get it right as it was written down in front of her.
