Personal experiences with the name Tully

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.

Hi my name is also Tully. I am named after no one but always receive compliments. I know one boy Tully though I am a girl.

hey!! my name is Tully too! i was named after the book Tully. i am 15 and have always loved my name as it is short and sweet but also very unique. i get a lot of compliments and questions about it as well and a couple of my teachers cant pronounce it, i only know one other person called tully and he is a boy. i got very exited a couple of years ago when tully smyth was on big brother. :):)
