Personal experiences with the name Julien: | Edit

My brother's name is Julien. It's pretty common in France, which is where my family is from, but i have yet to hear it in the US. But he turned out well.

My best friend is a GIRL named Julien. She hates it, I think it's pretty although it's very masculine. Sometimes she meets a guy named Julien and it's uncomfortable. She goes by Julesy, though, which I think is really pretty and fun and describes her personality.
