One of the most romantic names, the lovely and stylish Juliet seems finally to have shaken off her limiting link to Romeo. In Shakespeare's play, it was Juliet who said "What's in a name?" This year, Juliet sits at number 258, down slightly from last year's 238, it's highest point ever.
French version Juliette, pronounced the same by most English speakers though the French emphasize the last syllable, is also on the rise, but the Juliet spelling is hotter in the U.S.
Juliet Burke was a character on Lost and Juliet Sharp on Gossip Girl. Juliet Low was the founder of the American Girl Scouts.
Other ideas to consider: the original Julia, still lovely; Juliana; or even Jules.
