My name is Julia, and I think it's a pretty name, although it can sometimes be too harsh. However, please, please, please don't add any more Julia's to the world, this name is way overused.

Some people use 'Jools' or however you spell it as a nickname. Reminds me of 'drools'. Jewel or Julie is a much better nickname.

In Sweden Julia used to be the name for Juliet in Rome & Juliet, I think they have changed it to Juliet now though. The song by The Beatles is because John Lennon's mother was named Julia (which is why he chose Julian for his son).

In England the name Julia is used a lot, but in Denmark only few are called Julia. Therefore Julia is often mixed up with Julie, which is pretty annoying.

Julia Caesaris was the daughter of Caesar Augustus. She was considered the most beautiful woman in Rome, possessing gentleness, kindess and utter freedom from vindictivness. She was an active member of "The Julian Party" in favour of equal rights for the plebs of Rome. She was married thrice: firstly to her cousin Marcellus, then to Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, with who she had five children (three boys and two girls.) After Agrippa's death she was married to her stepbrother Tiberius, who many have said had her killed when he became emperor. She is famous in history for being shrouded in mystery.

My mother's name is Julia, and she doesn't like it much because she thinks the "JOO" sound is harsh and un-lovely. She goes by Julie and my dad calls her Jules (just because it springs to the lips easily). I think it's pretty though, and I don't know of that many Julias.

My sister's name is Julia and I think it is very pretty. Especially when you say it with a y in the beginning. I never really thought it was that popular, but then I looked it up and that made me think about it and I realized that I know a lot of Julia's. I like Julia way more than Juliet, which I think is far too common in other countries and all around a heavily dramatic name.

I like this name, and I know and Julia. Her name is said like "Joo-leah." though. Everyone calls her "Jewl-ya" though, her mom is the only one who really says her name right. "Joo-leah", but people try to get it right, and it comes out all funny, and she laughs about it. I love this name. It's sweet, although the "JOO" sound does sound a smidge harsh, I still love it.

This is a beautiful, nicely simple, classy and elegant name that you can't really go wrong with. The trouble with this name, for me, is that I associate it with the misfortunate character in Nineteen Eighty-Four, and I can't shake off that association. It's such a tragic story, and her fate is horrible.

Julia Urania or Urania (Greek: ¦Ç ¦©¦Ï¦Ô¦Ë¨¬¦Á ¦¯¦Ô¦Ñ¦Á¦Í¨¬§Ñ, Latin: Iulia Urania or IVLIA URANIA) was a woman who lived in the 1st century. Urania married the Roman client king Ptolemy of Mauretania. Ptolemy of Mauretania was an only grandson to African King Juba I of Numidia, Greek Ptolemaic Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt and the youngest grandson to Roman Triumvir Mark Antony.

Julia Bodina was a Roman Freedwoman from North Africa who lived in the 1st century. She was a former slave in the household of Roman client queen Julia Urania and Roman client king Ptolemy of Mauretania.

Little is known on her origins and life. In Cherchell Algeria, a funeral inscription has been found of Bodina’s. Cherchell was then known as Caesaria, the capital of Mauretania in the Roman Empire. In the funeral inscription, Bodina ascribed Julia Urania as Queen Julia Urania.

According to the inscription, she appeared to have taken the gentilicium of her former master, Julia Urania. She could have been a former slave from the Royal Family of Emesa (modern Homs, Syria). Julia Urania was ascribed as queen as a local courtesy or probably a dedication to honor her memory. This indicates that Bodina was a loyal former slave.

However, her thrill-seeking personality never subsided, and the desire to be in front of the camera rekindled inside her, so Julie returned to modeling during 2004.

For the majority of her literary career she belonged to the circle of writers based around the Romantic poet Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom and regularly published her poetry in the group's journal: Poetisk kalender.

To give you an idea of Julia being over-used, I was born in 1992, around the same time as most of my classmates. Three Julias in my year spring to mind plus another girl I know who lives farther away. And that's only in my year. When I searched for all the Julias in my school on Facebook, there were 36 including the girls in my year. Please wait for this name to die down before using it. There are way too many people with this name.

I think Julia is a beautiful, aristocratic name with an old-fashioned charm. I like how it sounds like _jewel_. Julia makes me picture a Victorian lady with rich, red tresses, an alabaster complexion, wearing a beautiful ruby necklace. It has a Victorian aesthetic and glamour, which I like very much.

OMG! I love this name! One of my faves. So feminine, sweet, classy, upperclass, fun to say. I like these short forms of Julia: Jule(s), Julie, JuJu, Jay, Lia. Also sounds like a princess, queen, or aristocrats name. This is one of those names where popularity doesn't matter, it's so perfect.

Julia is one of my favorite names - one can use it almost everywhere in the world without people getting totally confused when reading or listening to it.

I like this name. It's cool. It's classical and has a long history behind it. I think of Julia in George Orwell's 1984 and the songs titled 'Julia' by The Beatles and another by Chris Rhea for his daughter. It also reminds me of Julia Gillard - Australian ex-Prime Minister. Overall, it's a good name with a long history.

I just adore this name. I am pronouncing it "joo lee uh"/ "jool ee uh". I've never heard anyone pronounce it "jool yuh". Anyways, if I were to ever have a daughter I would fight for this to be her name... Julia is used in countries all over the world; it is classy, beautiful, unmistakenly feminine, and would be easy for a young child to learn to spell. I love that it's never been trendy... I believe it's popularity has been relatively steady over the years. A Julia could be a doctor or an engineer or a ballerina or an artist. Not much rhymes with Julia so hopefully even the most creative bully couldn't come up with much to tease a little Julia.

There are some decent nicknames as well: Jules, Lia, LiLi (like lee lee)

I just adore this name!
