  • "I haven't meant anyone who has the nachel and that's good because that means it's not too popular. I LOVE this name, and want to change my name from Julie to Rachel. I don't like my name, especially the original (Julia). It doesn't suit me at all and I don't like the sound of it. It's too harsh, while Rachel is so soft and easy to pronounce. I like it better how it is pronounced in Ukrainian (rrah-HEEL). It sounds so exotic and unique. I know at least 10 other Julie's and it is so annoying. Way overused."

  • "Apparently Rachel means destroyer of cabbages. Long ago in ancient Britannia there lived the girl child Rachel. She bathed in the blood of sardines and sent a plague of fire ants to destroy every cabbage in the world. Nobody could stop the ants for they were so firey." Dec. 7, 2016: Report as inappropriate
