This is my name, and honestly, I have loved it all of my life. I was disappointed growing up that I couldn't get anything pre-monogrammed in stores, but I adore how unusual it is. I go by the full name, no nickname, and have only ever met 2 other Julianna's - one used only 1 n, both went by nicknames, and I didn't meet them until I was college aged. Nearly every time I meet someone new, they comment on how beautiful my name is, and I agree. People constantly spell it wrong (adding e's in places, and extra l, but most commonly only one n) and even after being corrected, they continue to do it, but I've long since gotten over it. If you name your daughter this, you (and she) will not regret it :)

My daughter is Julianna Grace and we literally pulled strings the night before my csection as to name her Julianne Grace or Julianna Grace. Im glad we ended up with Julianna because I think its more youthful! Plus she looks like a Julianna

Julianne and Julianna are both stunning. I love Julie and Julia with all my heart, and they are so classic and beautiful that they will always be my favourite Julie names - but I adore some of the longer versions too, and Julie, Julia, and Jules can all be nicknames for these.
