I'm called Juliette and I get the very intelligent comment "where's Romeo" quite frequently. I really dislike my name, so think twice before naming your kid it :) .

My sister's name is Juliette and she has always loved it. She too gets ask about Romeo, but it's more like "Can I be your Romeo?" and she thinks thats sweet. She loves when her name comes up in a romantic song or quote. She says she loves her name because its different and has a beautiful and romantic air about it.
