What are your thoughts on Julianne, Juliet, Julia or Julie? Which do you prefer? (nn Jules).

Julie is quite dated, maybe Julia too, actually.

The first two are pretty and probably due a revival.

But Juliet is by far the best smile

Julianne or Juliet. The last two are yes, dated and not in a good way.

Can I add Julianna?

Juliet is lovely.

I love Juliet but am seeing them starting to come into schools, so no.
Julianne is lovely.
Julie, Julia are fine but nothing exciting about either.

Juliet was on my list but I was going to spell it Juliette. I just don't like Julie/Jools as a nn.

Julia is in top 100 names now I think which I was quite surprised about as I only know one who is 35(!)

My fantasy girl twins are called Josephine and Juliet.

Love Juliet

SanityClause Sun 22-Nov-15 09:31:44

I like Julia, of those.

It sounds happy.

MaisieDotes Sun 22-Nov-15 09:32:34

Juliet, by a mile. Love it.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 22-Nov-15 09:35:28

Love Juliet, and that spelling.

Julie is dated IMO. Julia and Julianne are quite pretty. But Juliet is gorgeous! Love it

villainousbroodmare Sun 22-Nov-15 09:47:55

Julie is my least loved of those.
As a pp suggested, does Julianna or Juliana appeal to you?

That's not so bad, this time. I've heard really horrible things about my name on MN before.

I've told DC that if they want to name a grand-child after me, that I like Julia best. And absolutely not Juliet <<shudder>>.

StrawberryTeaLeaf Sun 22-Nov-15 10:36:18

My name's dated too IamaJulie. But I'm guessing our names match our vintage smile

LBOCS2 Sun 22-Nov-15 10:39:22

I have a Juliet. So I may be biased grin

TheDisillusionedAnarchist Sun 22-Nov-15 10:45:12

Julia or Juliana

OhPillocks Sun 22-Nov-15 10:47:10

I really like all of them. I think Julie is very cute.

Leviticus Sun 22-Nov-15 10:49:54

Juliet. Classic, beautiful and not overused.

CelestiaLuna Sun 22-Nov-15 11:38:22

Any except Julie

merrymouse Sun 22-Nov-15 11:40:44

I like all of them.

SwedishEdith Sun 22-Nov-15 11:42:03

Julia is gorgeous. Classy. I think Julie might be due a comeback as well.

Sophronia Sun 22-Nov-15 11:48:08

Julia is classic and beautiful.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 22-Nov-15 11:53:32

Oh hard decision. On a level of personal opinion. I'm not that fussed on Juliet, but there's no denying its a beautiful classy elegant name. I think I would go for Julia. It's so refreshing to see all the old names come back
