Please help – I love Julienne but have reservations
I’m 5 months preg with my 2nd baby girl I’m really in love with the name Julienne and the nickname Julie, the only reason I haven’t 100% committed is because of the association with thin cut veggies :/ I know that most people don’t even know the term, I didn’t until I started looking up the name. I would like to get some thoughts on the potential impact of this (please!). Will she be teased or am I fretting over nothing?
Right now I don’t even have a close second and I don’t really care for the alternatives. My husband and I agreed that we would go with “proper” names which have a nickname that can be used (the nickname also needs to be fairly common, i.e. can be found on souvenirs lol). I think the attraction started with the names Adrienne and Vivienne which both do not have obvious or common nicknames, my husband also shot them down immediately And from there I came across Julienne.
Our 3 year old is named Lorelei Kirsten and we call her Lori (the popular short is very convenient). Right now for the baby I’m thinking Julienne Rachel but my husband is set on Julienne Aurora. I really like the idea of sisters Lori and Julie
Some other names I’ve considered are Evangeline/Angeline – Lori and Angie, Miranda – Lori and Miri/Mira (less common) but ehh.. I just like Julie!
