Personal experiences with the name Julie: | Edit

One of my best friends in the entire world's name is Julie (not short for anything, actually Julie). I have known only two other Julies my entire life personally. I absolutely love her name, it is utterly magnificent and gorgeous. She is a visually stunning girl -- literally. And her middle name coupled with her first name sounds absolutely dazzling. This name is perfection. It will always remind me of my great friend, who I love very much, and who is extraordinarily sweet and ALWAYS fun. =)

My sister's name is Julie and I love it. I'm pregnant with twin girls and I plan to name them Scarlett and Juliet, shorting it to Julie in her honor.

I have always loved my name. I didn't know any Julie's growing up. It wasn't until high school that I met three more. My mother said she named me after an actress, so I had ambitions of becoming one some day. Well, I had acting success in junior high, high school, and college....but I never hit the "big-time"! It is very interesting that after reading about the life work of Julie's listed on this site, I had much in common with them all.
