What about Juliana?

softboiledeggs Says:


I like this name, but my brain associates it with King Julien the lemur. I like Julian as well.

Julien almost sounds like Julianne. Almost.

LePapa Says:


If you wouldn't use Julianne for a boy, don't use Julian for a girl.

indiefendi2 Says:


Ok sue me but-- I've always been team Julian for a girl as well (Julia and Julianne bore me to tears) if not Julienne (perhaps a bit superfluous) so if I used it I would use this spelling. To me it's the perfect balance.
