Such a beautiful, elegant name! Although I possibly slightly prefer Juliet, the -ette ending offers distinction from Juliet Capulet - a connection that is likely to be made. I would probably only use it if I were to have twin girls, because I love the sibset Isabelle and Juliette, but I still think this name is lovely. I have an aunt called Juliet, though, who absolutely hates her name, and would likely kill me if I used it. We'll see...

I love Juliette or Juliet, but still prefer Julie, for its simple beauty. I think it's the prettiest Julie name, and currently underrated. Julia is classic and beautiful, in a slightly different way. Juliana, Julianne, etc are all lovely, too.

I love this name and I prefer this spelling much more because at least it's some what further from poor juliet who killed herself
However like if there's a boy called Romeo at her school...

Lizzy Lou Says:


That character (who was fictional) was spelled Juliet. Juliette could also be named after Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts) or other famous Juliettes. Romeo & Juliet is also an important historical play/piece of literature. I'd much rather name my daughter Juliette than something like, Caydynce or Brielle or Brooklyn.

Dalmatians101 Says:


I like this name, it has quite a few things I look for in a name. The only thing holding me down from using it, is the fact that a teenager commited suicide.

anniebrown01 Says:


Juliette is so elegant and beautiful! I like the French ending better, mostly because it works with nn Etta.

Giinkies Says:


I will never be naming my child after a teenager who killed herself.

Catastroffy Says:


I think Juliet looks slightly more grown-up than Juliette, maybe because I associate "ette" endings with childhood nicknames.

I never used to like the name Juliette (or Juliet) but recently it's been growing on me. I love the feminine look and the way that it rolls off the tongue. I also feel the extra -te gives it a distinction from the assumed "Romeo and Juliet" usage.

headintheclouds Says:


I used to prefer the Juliet spelling (thought that the extra -te made the name too heavy), but this Juliette version is starting to grow on me more. Juliet has more of a streamlined and peppy, springy, energetic feel to it; Juliette gives the name more of a black-and-white-glamor-photograph classic vintage flair, an extra boost of drama and oomph.

ThistleThorn Says:


The extra -t and -e make it a little too "weighed down" and I feel like on paper, the eye is drawn more towards the -ette.

JH Says:


I love Juliette and if I have a girl, this will be her name. It's a classic that everyone knows but isn't used too often. It's also very feminine, which I love.

Thank you!!

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I love it! Juliette is a gorgeous name!

Jasmine Mercado Says:


Is Juliette an ugly name for a girl? Alot of people I know don't like it. But I think it's cute and elegant.
