It is rather somewhat common but my boyfriend really likes it. I will make this a middle name for my baby because it's a stunning name. Makes me think of Romeo and Juliet, a movie I love.
My name is Juliet, and it's a decent name. I wouldn't choose it for myself but it is very pretty!
This name is so beautiful and classic. Perfect for a little girl born in July. I would pronounce it as Jool-ee-EHT with 3 syllables emphasis on the last syllable. The 2 syllable pronunciation listed on this site is confusing. I have never heard anyone pronounce it with 2 syllables.
Nice. I love Juliette as well. The Romeo and Juliet association doesn’t bother me tbh.
Too associated with the novel. Prefer Juliette or Julia.
Lovely. I don’t mind the Romeo and Juliet associations. I think this name ages really well and I prefer it over Juliette.
Juliet is a gorgeous name.
This is my sister’s name. I like it and it really suits her but I think that’s because she has a strong personality! There were constantly references to Romeo and Juliet in school but she started going by Jules in her teenage years. She is Jules to almost everyone now, except me (haha). I call her Jells/Jelly/Jellyfish/Jellytot/(insert other similar variant), which I think is cute.
Beautiful, sweet, but strong name! Strange that this name was never popular as given name. Just a beautiful name!
I think Juliet is a pretty and romantic name. However, if she were my daughter, I would be worried about everyone constantly associating her name with Romeo & Juliet. It's not that that's a bad thing, necessarily, but I'm sure it would get old after a while and she would probably get tired of hearing things like, “Where's Romeo?” and so on. Also, what if she didn't even like guys? Then she would for sure be tired of hearing all of that, hah. I mean, I know some people say that the name Juliet is beginning to “shake off” its association with Romeo, and that may be somewhat true, but to be honest, I still think of the play when I hear the name. Plus, it's been several centuries since Shakespeare wrote that play and almost everyone still knows about it today, even in the 2000s.
I think I might prefer it as a middle name, so that she would still have it in her name, but not get as many jokes about Romeo. Besides, even if she didn't mind the whole Romeo & Juliet thing at all, she could always go by Juliet as her first name, if she really wanted to.
There's a character, Juliet O'hara from the USA TV show, Psych. I think she should be added. :)
It's pretty.
Very pretty, although I'm not sure how I feel about the Romeo and Juliet association.
I personally love the name Juliet (I am a Juliet myself) and also get questions about Romeo. I just laugh and say that I don't know and that usually is okay. Thanks for reading my comment :)
I think it's too strongly associated with the air-headed Shakespeare character.
It is not really a famous bearer, but one of the moons of Uranus is called Juliet, though most moons of Uranus more so than other planets are named after Shakespeare characters. Many other moons are named after figures of Greek mythology, instead.
Romeo and Juliet doesn't come to mind when I hear Juliet. It's a pretty name.
I think it’s cute.
I like Juliet more than Julia. It's a pretty name, and I don't care about the Romeo and Juliet association.
I think Juliet is a beautiful name, one of the most lovely and wouldn't really be shortened, shouldn't tend to be. I like Juliet Saoirse which is Irish. I don't know how there aren't more Juliets about.
My daughter is Juliet Laura Elizabeth. I think it is such a lovely romantic name, little did I know she would have the biggest brown eyes with the longest lashes most have ever seen, she has delicate features too. With her waist length brown hair... we're in trouble! I can't really believe she came from me. Her nickname is Gentle Jules because she is so sweet. It truly fits her perfectly.
I also have an Amelia and a Hannah; I love classic non made up names that are not overly common.
Julieta, it's my eternal name... Love it forever!
It's pretty and all, but it reminds me far too much of Romeo and Juliet, and I hated that play.
My name is the Spanish version Juliet. I always get compliments about my name and also some jokes like "who's your Romeo?" But I honestly think this is a very elegant name a for a girl and it's not very common where I live.
There is actually a flower called "Juliet Rose", which took 15 years to be created by David Austin. It's known to be very expensive and it's commonly used in weddings and special occasions.

(I think the combo Juliet Rose is very beautiful just like it's namesake flower.)
I just changed my name legally from Britney (EW) to Juliet. I didn't have a specific reason other than wanting to honor a family member and wanting an adult, more mature name. Plus, I'm a wedding photographer and my clients love that my name is so romantic! I like both spellings, but I went with Juliet because it's more common. One of the biggest problems I have with Britney is the constant misspelling of it... And its negative ties to everything. I love my name now. I look for any opportunity to give it and love the responses I get... After 28 years of Britney, I am now Juliet!
This is my name and I love it. I have never gotten teased over it. My full name is Juliet Jolinda Betty Dixon. I hate my middle name. Parents PLEASE, and I beg you do not give your child an embarrassing middle name. Also, my mom didn't pick the middle name, my dad did. He isn't too good on middle names... My sister's name is Jillian Kayley Vada Dixon. My mom picked that. Jillian is also a really good name it means the same as Juliet. Both meaning downy hair, youthful, and beautiful.
This is my name! I have never gotten teased over my name. My full name is Juliet Jolinda Betty.
I adore this name! It's so elegant and beautiful. A girl with this name would most likely hear jokes about it, but there are worse names people could make fun of you for having.
My name is Juliette Elizabeth, and I love the name. Yes, I got teased growing up (still do) but there are other, worse names that you could get teased about. I have met only one other Juliette in my life - and from what my parents say, I was named after a pianist on a soap opera.
I love love love this name. ^.~ It's so so lovely and VERY pretty sounding. (;
My name is Juliet rose and I never used to like it, because of the sad Shakespeare story that goes with it. I also get asked the question 'where is Romeo?' a lot to which I reply 'he is dead.' Or some would say they are Romeo after I tell them my name. But as I get older I learned to love it. It's a pretty name, especially when I'm called by both names together. Most of my friends called me Jules. I love this version too. My name is famous and I love it! And that's that!
Actually, the usage of other forms of the name is quite different. The name Julieta is quite common in Spanish and I don't know anybody who has been teased, not even myself (my name is María Julieta but I usually go by my middle name).
If my son had been a girl, he would have been Juliet.
After listening to Lawson's new song - Juliet this name has suddenly become beautiful to me, definitely a possible name if I have a daughter in the future.
I first read/saw 'Romeo and Juliet' when I was eight and I fell in love with the name (and the play!) Plus, I acted in high school and the first lead I ever got was playing Juliet, so I decided that my first daughter will be Juliet Elisabeth.
Juliet "Jules" O'Hara is a character on the TV show Psych, played by Maggie Lawson.
Juliet is my first name and yes I do get the odd 'where's Romeo' joke but I just reply with 'Hopefully far away otherwise I will be dead soon' and plus now that I'm older I like my name because its unique and it makes me feel 'mature'. But my close friends normally use my nickname Julz which i
I like as well but my Dad being my Dad calls me Baguette but I actually don't mind it because it's a joking nickname from him and it makes it more unique :)
I love this name, its pretty much my second favorite baby name of all time. Though the child will undoubtedly recieve more than a few sarcastic comments about her 'Romeo' over the course of her lifetime, I really don't think its that big of a deal; to me, this name is worth it. I think its incredibly beautiful, and not so common that the child will meet a thousand other Juliets and be forced to go by a sillly nickname for the rest of her life. In my opinion, a much better and more romantic choice than Julie or Julia, definitely something to consider.
There's a song called "Hey, Juliet" by LMNT. (pronounced Jool-ee-ETTE) I've always always heard it said Jool-ee-ETTE. Does anyone really say JOOL-ee-it?
I've always heard it pronounced Jool-lee-YET, in Michigan, at least.
This spelling was not first used by Shakespeare. It had been used previously by the English poet Arthur Brooke in "The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet" which was published in 1562. The poem, which was a translation of earlier Italian and French tales (in which the forms Giulietta and Juliette were used), was the key source for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
Juliet Moss (born 1987 in San Jose, California) is an American water polo player.
Juliet Rose Landau (born 1965 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actress.
Juliet Huddy (born 1969 in Miami Beach, Florida) is an American televisions news reporter.
Juliet Simms (born 1986 in San Francisco, California) is an American singer-songwriter. She was the runner-up on the second season of the reality show The Voice.
I will be the first to admit, the famous play, Romeo and Juliet, is the first thing I think of, as do most people, but, it's a beautiful name. I'm sure it could carry some stigma, but I really wish people would look past the Shakespearean character. I think if you pair with a more grounded name, it brings it into a usable fashion.
My name is Juliet Anne and I love my first name. I like the fact that I have only ever met two other Juliet's in my life and I'm in my thirties! I love the fact it is unusual. It is a feminine and pretty name. I did get the Romeo comments at school but then again, who on here had no negative comments aimed at them at school? If it's not your name its based on your appearance or some other thing. The Romeo comments didn't bother me.
I like it, but I prefer Juliette. Juliet seems incomplete. But whatever, it's pretty.
This is amazingly beautiful and feminine. However, I do think Juliette seems more elegant. But Juliet is beautiful too!
Juliet is the "J" in the NATO Phonetic Alphabet.
This name is VERY beautiful, yes. But, there is a good chance that a girl named Juliet will be teased. We don't name our sons Romeo, do we? I think we should let Juliet rest in a safe place, as a MIDDLE name. Even though she is graceful enough to take center stage as a first name, I don't think everyone would be able to appreciate her beauty.
There's a song called Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits and later covered by the Indigo Girls.
Personally I think this is a very elegant name.
Juliet Simms, lead singer of the band Automatic Loveletter.
Even without the associations, I find this name sentimental. It's not too strong in concept and association either- I don't find the Shakespeare Juliet a very strong character. However, it's mature and can fit a girl throughout her life, it's not too bad a choice, really.
This is my first name. All I heard growing up was, "Where's Romeo?" I think all the jabs made me turn in the opposite direction because I hate romance. However, I am grateful for the somewhat unique name now that I am an adult, and I'm never teased anymore.
Juliet sounds like a girl with a weak personality and a weak stomach.
Honestly, giving a child this name would just be torture. The jokes they'd have to endure. Why put them through it? It seems selfish.
I think this name is amazing. That is a wonderful name for a princess. I love that name. I wish that was my name.=) I bet that's a very fancy name.
I think it's rather tacky. I know a girl named Juliet, and she's often being teased with "Romeo". ")
One of my most hated pet name forms.
Shakespeare also uses this in one of his later plays, Measure for Measure- a very adult play compared to his earlier comedies.
My absolute favourite name. It's fantastic and very beautiful; it sounds sort of old fashioned but I think that adds to its charm and yes, the first time I heard it was from 'Romeo and Juliet' (subsequently one of the detectives in the TV show 'Psych, Juliet O'Hara) but I don't really associate it with either; it's just a wonderful name by itself. I would love to have a daughter called Juliet.
My favorite name, ever. I love Romeo & Juliet, it's so romantic.
It's a pretty name, and not as common as Julia or Juliet, and I really liked Romeo and Juliet.
"Juliet" is also the code word for the letter "J" in the NATO phonetic alphabet.
When I think of this name, I think of Olivia Hussey in Franco Zeffirelli's film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. I think of a dark-haired ingenue in Italian Renaissance clothing. An ingenue who secretly has a backbone of steel. But even though I think that this is a beautiful, classic name, I think that it would be better kept as a pet name for a Julie or Julia or as a middle name; it's too loaded. I'd prefer to think of Shakespeare's young heroine instead of some woman in the supermarket or in the projects.
I adore this name, partially because of its ties to Girl Scouts. It also has a wonderful sound, and is much better (in my opinion) than Julie. If you love this name, use it. The joy you'll get will heal almost any joke you get on the name. :)
I love the name Juliet. I would name a daughter Juliet Rose. It's so classic and I also really like the actress who plays Juliet on "Lost."
The -et is trying too hard to be cutesy, classical and pretty.
There's a song by the band We The Kings called "Check Yes, Juliet".
Also pronounced JOO-lee-et and JOO-lee-it.
Juliet is the name of a small inner moon of Uranus, discovered in 1986 by the Voyager 2.
It seems a bit silly even to bother putting this down, but Juliet Capulet, one of the main characters in "Romeo and Juliet" is a famous bearer.
I highly dislike this name. Everyone else's comments are about how romantic it is, but I think far too romantic. There is much too much drama oozing from the name. When I utter it it feels heavy upon my tongue, far prettier in imagination than nonfiction. It's trying too hard like those paperbacks that middleaged women read on the beach with a halfnaked woman swooning in the arms of some chunky weightlifter. It is becoming so common and I feel that the trendiness of it will only diminish the simple elegance that Shakespeare gave it in Romeo and Juliet. I would like to remember Juliet as one of the main characters in one of the most romantic plays of all time, not the receptionist of a dentist office in the UK. I truly cringe at the name and far prefer Julie, no matter how plain.
Juliet is a guilty pleasure of mine. I think of Romeo and Juliet. Juliet is quite feminine, and I also think Julianne or Julianna is nice as well. I also think Juliette is nice as well.
I am naming a child Juliet in honor of "Romeo and Juliet".
The name Juliet is so romantic and elegant sounding for a little girl. I also like the Shakespearian connotations that come along with it. Shakespeare always used such lovely names.
Juliet Lowe is the founder of the Girl Scouts.
JULIET is a nice name but I prefer JULIA, because it doesn't sound so romantic, because of the Shakespeare play ROMEO & JULIET. :)
Makes a great middle name. One would be less likely to be teased with this as a middle name.
A character from ABCs LOST known as an 'other'. She is played by Elizabeth Mitchell.
I love the name Juliet and really want to name one of my children that. Although it's a really beautiful and graceful name, I can just picture the jokes that could go along with it! ;)
Julian Casablanca's wife's name is Juliet.
Australian author Juliet Marillier is a noteworthy reference.
I personally prefer Julia, I think with the name Juliet your child can expect some teasing.
I love this name so much. I find it so much more pretty than the overused and usual Julia. Juliet is one of my favourite names ever.
I really like this name. It makes me think of a person with really big brown eyes.
This is an absolutely beautiful name with wonderful literary ties. So mint.
I used to hate my name until about a year ago. It's a great choice for a name, in my opinion, but the bearer should be ready for a barrage of "Ooh, where's your ROMEO?!" jokes while they're growing up.
This name was originally the English version of the Italian name Giulietta, and is traditionally pronounced JOO-li-yit. It's the French form, Juliette, which is pronounced joo-li-YET or zhoo-li-YET.
Actress Juliet Mills is a bearer of this name. She is the sister of Hayley, also a famous actress.
Juliet is my favorite name for a girl! I absolutely love it, and plan to name a future daughter Juliet Isabel or Juliet Ann. I also love all the nicknames and variations - Julie, Jules, Juliette, Julia - the list goes on. :)
I think this is a very pretty name for a little girl.
