Personal Impression
Tullia Calabi Zevi (1919–2011) was an Italian journalist and writer. Zevi's family fled Italy to France and then to the US after the rise of fascism in the 1930s. While in New York City, she married Bruno Zevi. She returned to Europe in 1946, and was one of the few women journalists to report the Nuremberg Trials. On her return to Italy, she played a major role in Interfaith dialog, and was active in Italian Centre-left politics. Zevi was president of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities from 1983 to 1998.

My beautiful Grandmother who has passed on her name was Tullia and she was in fact from Italy. Her and her family migrated way back when and did become US citizens.

Only 5 girls were named Tulia in 2013 (US) and less than 5 girls were named Tullia. The nickname Tully was bestowed on 5 girls and 5 boys each in 2014. If you are looking for a rare name choice - this one will do!

A friend of mine chose this as her name for her Latin class, and I instantly loved it. I assumed it was spelt Tulia, so I still prefer that spelling over the technically correct Tullia. I think it's a really neat name.

I have also read in several name books that Tullia is Irish and means "peaceful, quiet."
