    Nobody Does It Like Juliet

    A long time favourite of mine, is the classic, beautiful, perfectly feminine Juliet. However, the negative connections to the play (curse you Shakespeare for making Juliet a suicidal teenager, haha) and, a new song by my favourite band, Lawson (Juliet is a 1920's mobster girl, played by Kelly Brook in the video, who happens to be a classy jewel thief/gold digger...). These aside (I know most people wouldn't make the connection to the song, unless they're a teenaged girl in the UK), is Juliet still a beautiful, usable name, or will a little Juliet forever be picked on thanks to Shakespeare?

    Shakespeare wouldn't even cross my mind and I haven't heard the song either.
    Juliet is fine. It's actually not that unusual here in the US

    When I read your title, I immediately sang the song :P
    I don't think Juliet is too associated with anything. I wouldn't be surprised to meet a Juliet and I wouldn't think of Shakespeare. When I heard the name of my mam's friend, I didn't think "Oh, like Romeo & Juliet," I thought, "That's a pretty name."

    I love Juliet, and it's not so unusual that it will solely be associated with Shakespeare (or the Dire Straits song, which I sung when I read your title...) Good luck!

    I've known several girls named Juliet.

    I admit, the first connection is to Shakespeare's character, but I think most people have a pretty vague idea of her in their minds. Sort of like Caesar or Guinevere.

    It's definitely usable. I've never heard of the song, so I can't imagine the connection lasting very long and if anything it will just make the name easier to swallow for people. The way the song did for Delilah.
