  • "My name is Jillian, and I have grown to absolutely love it more and more throughout the years. I sometimes wonder how it sounds to other people that don't hear it every day the way I do. My mom used to have a doll named Jill Baby when she was younger, and thus always wanted a daughter named Jill. Then she saw the name Jillian in a baby name book and fell in love! Sometimes I tell people to call me Jill because otherwise they'll say Julian, but they aren't allowed to call me anything but Jillian around my mom. I had a best friend named Jillian in elementary school, and she was the only one I knew. Now, in college, there are at least 2 Jillians in each of my classes (one with a G). Seems like it's getting pretty popular! A lot of people consider me "the funny one" or sort of girl-next-door-ish, and I think the name Jillian suits that persona very well. I have a twin brother, and my mom considered naming him Jacques. Sort of like Jack and Jill but more French and less obvious :) I'm glad she didn't! I get many compliments on my name, almost on a daily/weekly basis. I have a lot of little nicknames but the most popular would be Jill or Jilly. My best friend's name is Lillian so people have a lot of fun with that. I still can't imagine what it would be like to be named Amanda or something lame like that. :)" Feb. 6, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "Jillian is a beautiful and terrific name. I thought it was a popular name in '92 becuase there were 2 other Jillian's/Gillian's in my class. After that I never knew anyone by that name till '98. Over all in 22 years, I have only met 5 other Jillian's (with the combined various spellings). I have met girls who have it spelt Jyllian and Jilliann. When I say my name most people respond with "Julian?" (which is a boy name). It is funny how people know the name Jill but can't manage adding ian to it. For the longest time I was only called Jill because of the difficultiy I had introducing my self, and getting people to stop calling me by a boy name. I have reverted back to correcting people now as my name is JILLIAN not Jill or Julian. I love my name! The popular nickname Jilly or Jelly Bean has transformed it's self over time to beanie or beanie babe (after the stuffed toy fad hit). It's exciting to find things in store with my (full) name, spelt with a J in stores as it is uncommon. My Mom named me after a 80's daytime drama show, I guess. My mon has bought me every Jillian Jigs (and her wonderful pig's ) book too "Jillian Jillian Jillian Jigs! Looks like your room has been lived in by pigs!". I meet Robert Munsch who said he even used that name (same spelling) in his book 'Ribbons'. As you can see, I love my name!

  • "HEY! I am a Jillian as well and I do NOT like! The pronunciation is too long and the use of the letters ?ill? isn?t very pleasant. If you name your child Jillian, just know that they will be called ?Julian? their whole lives by ignorant people. It?s something that won?t phase you after several years of it until a friend brings it up and you?re like ?oh yeah, that does happen still, doesn?t it??. But it seems most people on this site like the name so good for them. It?s just not something I prefer for myself. - Jingo" Sep. 19, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi, my name is Jillian. I travel a lot and find that Arabs, Indians, Turks, Asian's just can't seem to get. It becomes Julian everytime. Which i just nod and agree to, because its so hard for them to pronounce it. I do think Jillian is a nicer name than Jill, but for ease, I use Jill a lot. Though when i have to speak my name in public i always use Jillian. I read on the internet that Jill and Jack, was a very early name for currency, like penny's and shillings, and the nursery rhyme is in fact about the rise and fall of the currency in an early kingdom, and the reference to a pail of water, was about the plague which polluted the water and therefore brought about economy downfall, as in Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after! So there you, some useless info to bore your friends with. My name on my birth certificate was originally Galadriel, which is the Elf Princess in Lord of the Rings, but i got adopted 2 weeks later and lost the name for 27 years. But that's a whole other story." Jan. 30, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a Jillian! I absolutely LOVE my name. When I was younger I hated being called Jill because I would get the "Jack and Jill" nursery rhyme thrown at me... but as I'm at university that's not a problem anymore, once I hit high school I accepted Jill as a nick name and now I love it. I've had several nick names over the years, Jill, Jillie, Jillie Bean, Jill Pill - I love "take a chill pill Jill" - Gilly (as a joke), I've gotten "Silly Jilly" as well. Its a very versatile name in terms of nick names. Not a huge fan of the spelling "Gillian," I think because it reminds me of Gilligan... but if that's what you're given, I'm sure you can rock it! Its kinda cool in a quirky way. I just love the letter J though. I have gotten comments from people telling me my name is really pretty, which I love. When I was younger I thought it was really unique and I LOVED that, but once again when high school hit I met a couple of other Jillian's, and it took me all but 2 seconds to realize I hate when other people have my name and am so glad my name isn't more common. Its really hilarious to me, but an irritating kind of hilarious, when people can't pronounce my name! HATE Julian, because that's a boys name. I've had the Jill-yin problem! But rarely. But the thing that baffles me the most is when I'm introducing myself as Jillian people can't seem to understand what I said half of the time!! What's up with that?? All in all though, I AM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH MY NAME." Sep. 29, 2009: Report as inappropriate
