Personal experiences with the name Julianne: | Edit

My name is Julianne though I've always gone by Juli, the only comment I'd have might be specific to me I work in a technical field and I was typically the only girl in my Tech classes in high school which meant my teachers often assumed the name on the attendance sheet was Julian not Julianne. It wasn't a huge problem and it never bothered me

Meanings and history of the name Julianne: | Edit

I believe my mother, Julianne Frost, was the first of that name in N America. She was born on June 7, 1941, in Cowley Wyoming. Her father, Julian "Jack" Frost was planning on her being a boy and named Julain Jr., so when she arrived a girl (in those days it was a surprise), a new name was needed. My grandfather thought, well, I can still name her after myself if I add an -ne, which sounds feminine, and named her Julianne.

Julianne Bournonville notwithstanding, I can find no earlier use of the name from any source. And as that was not actually the given name of Julie Alix de la Fay, I give my mother credit for being the first Julianne in history. Does anyone know of an earlier example?

- - - The national Social Security applications database lists the name Julianne given to 7 baby girls in 1912 and increasing thereafter, so your mother was not the first in 1941. -anne and -ette suffixes are very common ways of feminizing French names.
