- Personal experiences with the name Tully: | Edit
My name is Tully and I am named for my grandmother (Tully was her maiden name), from an Irish family. I love my name and love that it is a family name. I have only ever met 1 other Tully in my life so it is definitely not a common name at all but it's also not too 'weird' and people usually pronounce it and spell it correctly even though they may not have heard it before. I get many compliments, comments and questions about my name because it is different, which I like.
