Hi All -

Thought that DH & I were set on names, but have changed our minds. Original choice for girl's name was Jessica Avery, but due to the popularity of the name Jessica, we've decided to try something else.

DH's late grandfather (whom he adored...) was named Julian. Since we already chose Bennett MacGuire for a boy's name (family names as well), we would like to use Julian for a girl. Here's our choices:

Juliana Avery (my favorite - pronounced Julie-Ah-Nah)
Julienne Avery (DH's fav. - pronounced Julie-En)

What do you guys think? Either sound better to you? Thanks in advance for your opinions

~Jenn

Juliana.

"Julienne" is a noun that is used to described vegetables cut into long, thin strips.

See.... that's exactly what I told DH - and I'm the last person who wants my daughter's name to conjure up images of vegetables

Thanks for your insight! I'll show this to him and see if that hopefully won't sway him to my way of thinking

I like Juliana, or Julianna.

Where you looking for a name very close or the same meaning as Julian?

Thanks again, ladies

Yes, we were looking for a name that either sounded as close to Julian, or was spelled as similar as possible, without actually using Julian since that's normally considered a male's name.

I reminded my DH again about Julienne referring to finely sliced vegetables, and I think finally he realized what I was getting at as he said "I don't want a daughted that makes everyone think of vegetables!" - My thoughts exactly..... If that were the case we would name her Zucchini.

I'm sure that I won the "Juliana" struggle - and I absolutely love it, too! Thought about "Julianna", but am afraid that then it would be pronounced as Julie-AnnA, and I really like it the other way

Now just to find out what we're having!
