    Love the streamlined, sophisticated Juliet.

    I'm torn. Juliette looks very pretty, and I think helps to distance the name from Romeo & Juliet. On the other hand, the extra letters are rather unnecessary, and spelling would constantly need to be corrected. You might even get a few people trying to pronounce Juliette joo-lee-et-tee, to make sense of the extra letters.

    I prefer the French flair of Juliette.

    Like Choupette above, I prefer the French flair of Juliette. It looks feminine and sophisticated to me and it also separates it from the Shakespeare character.

    I like the tailored look of Juliet. I think the Shakespeare character has also made this the "default" spelling for most in the English-speaking world, so you'll likely deal with less correcting. Juliette looks a little... extra, to me. If you want a more femme flair, I prefer Julianne.

    The only Juliette I know is half-French and pronounces her name as joo-lee-ET instead of JOO-lee-et, like the Juliets I know.

    I am torn on this one. I like how the French sound and look go together so well with Juliette, but I am also preferring more simple names at the moment, so Juliet fits that category. For me it's a tie and I can't decide.

    ETA I will probably be playing mind tennis with this for a few hours now going back and forth
