  • "I named my beautiful baby girl Julia after my great grandmother. She was a very strong and gracious woman who I was fortunate to have known until I was 10 years old. She was a huge part of my childhood and I knew if I ever had the blessing of a daughter I would name her Julia after my Nana. Love the name more then ever since having my girl who is now 7 years old and is as strong willed as my nana :)" Sep. 2, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Julia, and I absolutely love it! I was named after my great grandmother. I haven't met too many people with my name. It is pronounced "Joo-Leah" but there have been a fair share of people who pronounce it "Jool-yah," although it doesn't bother me too much. My family calls me "Jules" and also "Julsie." Sometimes they call me "Julia Gulia," but I prefer to be called Julia. This is such a great name, anyone is lucky to have it!" Aug. 7, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "Love my name :) I was born in 1988 and went to school with 2 other girls named Julia. Everyone calls me Julie :-| and I get "Jul-ya" a lot too. I'm just used to it these days. I love the name Julia and a lot of times when I tell people my name they say "what a beautiful name"." May. 18, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name!! I feel like it's kind of unique, but it isn't too "strange". I do hate it when my brother calls me Jul though. Surprisingly, no one has called me Julya..." Oct. 22, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Julia. I hate it when people call me Gulia, Julya, j, Jules, and Julie. For some reason I like people calling me Julianne and that's not even my name. #juliaRocks" Jun. 13, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my daughter's name. She was born in 2005 and she does have another Julia in her class, but it's not a huge deal and it's not like she's ever been one of five Julias in her class or anything. I love her name. It is beautiful. But like others, it drives me nuts when people call her Julie or Jul-ya (my grandmother says it that way and I can't correct her but I hate it!). She takes it in stride though. :)" Mar. 22, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Julia and I was born in 2001 O.O So apparently my name was really popular the year I was born! ^.^" Aug. 9, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Julia and I love it. I am disappointed that it is becoming more common but it isn't as common as say, "Ashley" or "Megan" so it's all good. I only get called Julie by older adults and I normally just don't correct them even though it's not my name. The one downside is that people pronounce Julia wrong all the time. They say "jul-YAH" instead of "JULE-LEE-A". It annoys me so much because "jul-yah" sounds so harsh and unromantic. But, overall I love my name and the song that goes with it (Julia by: The Beatles). My family calls me "juju" "ju" "jewdge" "Jules" and "Julia". I only got made fun of in 1st grade with the whole "Julia. Hulia, boolia," stupid name game thing but all else is fine. -Julia" Jul. 15, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Julia. I've definitely met other Julia's in my life, but it's unique enough that there aren't usually multiples in one classroom. Pronunciation is rarely a problem, but like most people here, I really don't like it when people say JuliE. Few people have nicknames for me, but sometimes I'm called Jules or J, which I don't mind." Jan. 19, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name! I was named after my great grandmother Julia. Lol! I totally relate to the 2 vs 3 syllable pronunciation of my name. My mother called me Ju-li-a, unless she was explaining my name, in which case I was Jul-ya, which i hated. I do dislike a lot of nicknames though: mostly because my father thought it was funny to call me the "Jules of the family". My name is Julia. You may call me Julia." Jul. 14, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was also named after my Grandma Julia, a strong and unique woman, and hate when people call me JuliE! My brother calls me JuJu or JuJuBee, parents call me Jewel Box, and some friends call me Jules- I don't mind any of those. I do mind Julie... people even sometimes respond to my e-mails, where I've written my name with an A twice in my signature, with "Hello JuliE"! Is it really that much harder to pronounce the A at the end? I love my name and if I have a daughter I'd like her to have it, too, to keep my Grandmother's legacy alive."

  • "I'm a Julia too, I was named after a great great grandma Juliana. My mom just shortened it. I too get called Jules by my friends, my dad calls me Ju, my mom calls me Juliana sometimes. But like most of you I can't stand being called Julie. It's just not my name. And I hold a special hate in my heart for Adam Sandler and the wedding singer. No one had ever made fun of my name before that movie. I cringe when I hear Julia Gulia. I say ok you got a freebie, don't ever call me that again. Overall I love this name and I can't imagine being named something else." Jan. 19, 2011: Report as inappropriate
