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 :P 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!

    Miranda Leslie is very nice! I think Lorelei and Miranda are great together. I think Miri is adorable, honestly, and quite intuitive. There’s also Annie (which I love!). And Lori and Annie are sweet.

    Thanks for replies. Mimi is cute but this happens to be what my step mom has chosen to go by with the grandkids.. so that would be too confusing… I dunno, Mira and Miri are pretty but sounding a little too exotic for me now that I’ve tried it out, I dont see it catching on with the family either. Right now I’m thinking Mandy will be the best fit, it’s cute and common, sounds cute with Lori too. I’m thinking if I can find Lori on a souvenir then I should be able to find Mandy, if not Miranda. & a special nn for mommy & daddy would be “mear-bear” lol. Also, just for kicks I threw out Juliana to the hubs but it was shot down, womp. Unless I find something else that grabs me Miranda Leslie it is :)
