This is also used as a nickname for Juliana. I suppose it could be used for any name beginning with "Jul-".

Please have the sense NOT to name your daughter Jules. Name her Julia, Julie, Juliet, Julianne, or something like that, and just call her Jules. This name is far too masculine for females.

I am called this from time to time (my name is Julianna.) And it's always said, never written.

I don't know if this counts as a famous bearer, but the Beatles song Hey Jude was supposed to be Hey Jules, after John Lennon's son Julian. However, Mccartney thought Hey Jules was going to be too hard to sing, so they changed to Hey Jude.

Jules was a character in the Vampire Diaries.

I think this name is so darling. It also is edgy and trendy. Jules reminds me of a confident, smart, witty, clever and quirky girl. But I like this as a nickname for "Julia".

The name Jules was given to 69 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I prefer it for boys personally.

My name is Juliana (pronounced "ANA"!) but I've been going by this lately because people always want to shorten my real name. For some reason when I was younger I spelled it with a "z" but an "s" is less confusing. I always thought it sounded rather masculine though.

This is my favorite nickname for my favorite boys name. I plan on naming my first son Julius and calling him Jules. I don't know why I like this name so much. Maybe it's because it's different enough to stand out from all the kids named Jake, John, or Nick, without being too "weird" or "out there."

I love this for a boy, but Jules doesn't sound feminine at all. I'm not even one for extremely girly names, but this would sound wrong and misplaced on a girl. If you want to name your daughter this, though, I guess you could do worse.

One of my male teachers was named Jules, but so was a girl in one of my classes. I think it works for either gender.

The name Jules was given to 92 boys born in the US in 2015.

My father was a physicist. Coincidentally, a Joule is a unit of energy. Apparently when I was born I was hyperactive, so the closest name, Jules, stuck.

Jules Verne, a French author, wrote about submarines in 20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea and around the world air travel in 80-days --before the technology existed. Creative predilections for the future appealed to my mother, a europhile.

I'm often asked about the "Family Jewels". Riding a horse named "Bucky" near barbed wire eliminated opportunities for producing more family after my first two sons.

I didn't name either of them Jules Junior for fear they'd have bad JuJu.

Many women named Julie, Juliana, Julia and Juliette acquire the nickname Jules to the point that Jules is now presumed a female name. I frequently receive letters addressed to Ms. Mrs. And Miss Jules even though I'm a 6'2" retired Iraq war combat veteran and climbing arborist with chain saws and a CDL that drives semi-logging and bucket trucks.

A fighter pilot in the Mexican Air Force gave me the call sign "Gringo Julio". Pronounced Who-Leo, many gringos don't know how to spell Julio, but wish me well on my transhispanic journey south of the border while designating me to translate the menu at Taco Bell into English.

Perhaps the coolest Jules was Samuel L. Jackson starring alongside John Travolta and Bruce Willis in the Quentin Tarantino's movie, "Pulp Fiction". Not many black people (African Americans) get the name Jules, but those from previously French colonies in Africa (African-Africans) such as Côte d'Ivoire and Djibouti do.

Jules White and Jules Bass directed and produced the Three Stooges.

If you have a problem distinguishing black from white the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA does opthalmology surgery and aesthetic rejuvenation.
