Jillian Beanstalk, daughter of Jack and the Beanstalk in Ever After High.
You know that book called Twerp? Well, there's a character in there named Jillian. The main character is named Julian. Get it?
My name is Jillian and I love it! So fun and pretty, and a large selection of nicknames. I go by Jilli, but you could call me JJ, Jill, Jillie, Jilly, Lia, Lily, Lil, and even J-LO!
I like this name, it's pretty. Jillybean, Jilly, and Jill are cute nicknames.
This used to be my favorite name. I love nicknames like Jilli and Jillia.
My name's Jillian and I generally like it- I usually go by Jill though, to the point that most people are surprised when they find out my full name is Jillian. It's uncommon enough that I don't come across many other people with my name, but it's well-known and easy to pronounce so no substitute teachers have butchered it as of yet. By far my favorite thing about it is the nickname potential. My parents call me 'Pepper' (as in jilli pepper), but my friends have gotten far more creative: Jilly, Jillybean, Gillette, Gilligan, Gwyllion and my personal favorite, Bill!
I love this name, it's my mother's name and I think it’s really pretty. It makes me think of nature. I think it’s a wonderful name and screw you who don’t.
I find the look and sound of it rather unpleasant. I prefer Julia and even just Jill.
My name is Jillian, I love it! I was born in the 80's and hardly run across another Jillian. It was always fun being the only Jillian in my class and sometimes in the whole school, at least I always knew people meant me when I heard my name called. I always get complimented on my name. It worked for me as a young child, as a teen went by just Jill but as an adult prefer Jillian. It's a great name for a baby girl!
I love this name! It's been in my top 5 forever, and I'm considering it. I love "Jay" as a nickname for Jillian. Jillian is a name that can suit a variety of personalities and girls. It also ages well, and sounds great. I love this name! :)
I've always thought it was very pretty.
It is an absolute freaking cute name, once obsessed with a girl whose name was Jillian, and unfortunately that girl rejected me, ever since I hate that name.
I think the name Jillian is sooo beautiful. My name is Jillian and I love everything about it. The only problem I have is that occasionally someone will call me Julian (aka substitute teachers) but once they realized that I am a female, they immidently change it.
My name is Jillian and it is a beautiful name to be had since Cleopatra couldn't fill in the shoes of the name.
A lovely name.
My name, too, is Jillian. I completely understand the Jack and Jill rhyme, except I personally am actually dating a guy named, you guessed it, Jack, although we haven't heard the nursery rhyme being spoken around us.
Doesn't roll off the tongue that easily.
I'm a Gillian and much prefer it since it's the original spelling (from 13th century onward). It went out of fashion when the name because synonymous with 'a flighty girl'. Go Gillians everywhere, I say. It became a bit more popular again in the UK in the 20th century when a famous children's writer named her daughter Gillian. Really grateful since my mother's other choice was Gale. Yuk!
I love the name Jillian! It's such a beautiful name and my little sister's name is Jillian. She brings joy to me everyday and she is super smart. I love her name especially because of the nicknames you can come up with. I love my sister's name and her nicknames, Jilli-bean, Jillo, and Jilly. :)
At first I liked "Gillian" more, but now I think I'm fine with either.
There was a woman named Jillian who voiced a character in something that got popular, the character's name was "Monika" or something. But yes, I think Jillian is a pretty okay name. You have the option of the nickname "Jill" which is an awesome name too.
I sit next to a guy named Jack in class, the order that a sub says our names is Jack and Jill. So every time we have a sub, people will sing "Jack and Jill..."
Jillian Holtzman from the 2016 remake of "Ghostbusters" (portrayed by Kate Mckinnon).
This name is OK. I mean I don't love or hate it but I can tolerate it enough. My opinion on it is pretty neutral. I do prefer this spelling over Gillian though. The spelling of Gillian just looks dreadful to me and if I ever did use this name, it would never-ever be the 'Gillian' spelling. The spelling of Jillian all the way!
I have always loved my name and the way it is spelt but cannot stand being called Jill. Some of my friends call me Jilly which is cute x.
"Jillian Russell" is a character on "Family Guy", one of Brian's girlfriends.

Very cute name! I like that it's not overly feminine!
I think the name Jillian, while not being conventionally pretty, has a lot of charm.
There is no y sound in Jillian. It is pronounced jil-ee-un.
Our daughter's name is Jillian. She just turned one. We usually call her Jillian, sometimes Jilly. I absolutely love it and it seems to suit her so well! To me Jillian is such a pretty and happy sounding name. Jilly is so sweet and cute as a nickname, and Jillian can be refined and mature, but still fun and approachable. Love love love Jillian!
I don' t really like it. It's kind of stuffy and makes me think of someone who owns a house full of butlers and maids. There are no round tones to this name and you can pronounce it without moving your lips.
I like this spelling much better than Gillian. I think it is a very pretty, happy-sounding name. I only know one person named Jillian and she is very smart, sensitive, and fun.
Jillian Fisher, author of The Valdez Quintuplets.
Famous bearer: Jillian Michaels who is the personal trainer on the weight loss reality serious The Biggest Loser.
Very pretty, it doesn't sound too mature when you're young or too cutesy when you're older. I've only seen a couple of people with this name.
This name always makes me think of a female vampire, but I still think it's a pretty name.
My first name is Jillian. I'd much rather this spelling then the spelling with a G, "Gillian". I used to hate my name, but I have grown to like it. I proudly go by Jillian, and not "Jill". I personally can not stand Jill, and for any parents who are thinking about naming their daughter Gillian/Jillian: Don't give her the nickname Jill. Please.
This is an awesome name and in my entire life I have only known ONE Jillian. Why don't more people use this name!? It's WAY better than names like Mackenzie and other such fluff that are the top ten name charts at the moment.
My name too is "Jillian" but my father changed the spelling to "Gyllian". So, I get Juliana, G-ie-lian and most embarrassingly, Gilligan! as in Gilligan's Island. That annoys me to no end as well. As far as nicknames go, Jill, or Jilly-Bean and Jilly are top on the list. Most people call me "You".
Jillian was one of the women on The Bachelor with Jason Mesnick. She was eliminated when the final two were announced.
[From -] The name Jillian was brought to England by the Normans when they conquered the country in 1066. It comes from the old French given name Guillaume. The name Guillaume was modified into two forms after arriving in England: Gillham and William.
This is such an AWESOME name!
A famous bearer of this name is Jillian Michaels, a fitness trainer on the NBC reality series The Biggest Loser.
There is a song by Within Temptation entitled "Jillian".
Possibly originated from medieval English, and there are two popular meanings to this name - "youthful" or "girl".
Jillian is a treasure of a name - it's not overused like "Julia" and it's not as simple and plain as "Jill". It doesn't spawn ugly nicknames either. I'm very surprised this name never grew as popular as the name "Jennifer". It's the sort of name I can picture a girl loving at any age.
I prefer this to the harsh looking Gillian. Jill is cute, too.
A very pretty name. You can't go wrong! I think Jilly (and even Jill, GASP!) would be cute nicknames. :)
Italian, French, Spanish and German actress Jillian Hennessy, 25th November 1968, Edmonton, Alberta.
I'm also a "Jillian". I've gotten "Julian" a good amount of times as well (partially from European relatives). I'm not a huge fan on being called "Jill" but I deal. I kinda like being called "Jilliacrates" though. :/
My name is Jillian, I do agree with other Jillian's in that I get "Julian" on a regular basis and I HATE IT! My uncle's name is Julian, and that is not a wonderful thing to be called your uncle's name. I do go by Jill if people cannot pronounce Jillian. My family and close friends call me Jilly also, but I found that many people love my name. I have actually gotten jobs based off of my name, and I am always held at high regards because of my name. I absolutely love my name and all the wonderful complements I receive about it!
My name is Jilianne and people are always mispronouncing it and misspelling it. I get called 'Julian' all the time and I hate it!
Beautiful, beautiful name! And not all that popular, like Jennifer or Lauren. When I think of the name Jillian, I picture a pretty, youthful happy and jubilant girl, one that can have fun and be mature at the same time.
It's a very happy sounding name, but I just don't see it maturing well.
I love the nickname "Jillie".
One of my friends names is Jillian. There is a Julian too and she absolutely hates it when people mispronounce her name as Julian. Anyway, I really love the name Jillian! Julian? Not so much. Some of our nicknames for my friend are Jewels and Jillie.
This happens to be my name and over the years I've had a few nicknames with it. I always hated being called Jill, so my friends had to get more creative with the nicknames. For a while I went by Jae. And currently, I go by Lily. Both taken from my given name. So there are more creative nicknames for this name (which by the way, I love) than Jill.Though, I will agree with what the person above said. I do get "Julian" and "Joanne" a lot. It annoys me to no end.
One of my friends' name is Jillian. I'm glad she doesn't go by Jill. That seems very childish.
Very beautiful name, when I hear it I think of a beautiful woman, who knows what she wants. But I don't like Jill or Jilly as a nickname to it.
I just love this name, beautiful and elegant. A great name to grow up with.
I can't really say why, but I just don't like this name much. I guess it sounds like a name parents would use who are trying really hard for something different.
My name is Jillian as well, and most people that have anything to say about the name say that it is beautiful and or classy. When shortened to Jill, however, I find it boring, and when shortened to Jilli, as I often go by, I find it more spunky, so to speak.
I was going to be named this, but I just HATE it! It sounds really snobby, and then you shorten it to Jill and Jill is so BORING! I'm VERY glad to be named Lauren and not Jillian. THANK YOU!
This has to be one of my favorite names. It is classy and elegant. A name you can grow up with.
This is my name, actually, and I've never had anyone recite "Jack and Jill" to me. I think it's a lovely name and unique enough that I've only ever met less than 10 other Jills. However, some people have trouble pronouncing it for whatever reason. I get "Joan," "Joann," "Julian (VERY popular mispronunciation)" and even "Julie."
Such a lovely vibrant name.
I like this name a lot, it's just too bad you couldn't have the name without hearing "Jack and Jill went up a hill..."
