Juliana Wilson Says:


My name is Juliana and I've loved growing up with it, but my friends and family have only ever just called me Juli (no "e" lol). Not sure why as Juliana is really pretty but I've been Juli for so long, it'd be weird to go by my full name lol.

I love this name! I named my daughter Juliana Faith in 1999 and have only come across it a few times in her 16 years. It is unique but a good strong name!

Juliana is a very popular name in Spanish speaking countries,the "j" is pronounced like the English sound "h" like "j" ="/h/ , just like other popular Spanish names Juan or Juana or Julio/a. My daughter's name is Juliana and I always have to clarify that it is "h"uliana, as opposed to the "j" sound like in the word "June" or "Jude". Usually when Spanish borrows a foreign name from English like Jonathan or Jessica, they preserve the original sound of the "j", in this case, like nobody would say "h"onathan or "h"essica, but unfortunately it seems like that doesn't happen when a foreign name is borrowed into English or at least some names. The same analog can do with the name John, it is so popular in English that everybody knows that the "j" is pronounced like in the word "June".

Juliana is so beautiful. I feel that Julia and Julie are so dated and Juliet is quite popular, Juliana just feels like a great alternative. Especially since it's been used throughout Europe.
