    I don't think it's overly popular at all. You may, however, have to correct people at times on the desired pronuciation. I know I, and many others, would initially pronounce it as Juli-anna if we weren't aware (I have a cousin who spells it your way but pronounces it the other... in fact, I've never heard it pronounced your way regardless of the spelling ). But yeah... I agree with the others... it's not an uncommon name, but it's not a very common one either. Very pretty.

    Honestly, I don't think it matters what you name a child or how short/long their name is... people who want to use nicknames will come up with one anyway. My name and my brother's are not really shorten-able or nickname-able and yet friends/etc. always managed to do so LOL My sister, on the other hand, has a longer, hyphenated name and my mother always insisted on everybody using all of it. She'd even correct people if they shortened it. Of course, now... amongst her coworkers/friends she goes by the short version anyway

    Marla, very true. My almost 9yr old, Brilee, gets super annoyed with ppl giving her nicknames of Bri, or Brile, or Briles, drives her nuts, but doesn't stop ppl from doing it either, even when she tells them so.

    My son Peter deals with this as well he keeps telling people "I am not Pete or Petie" But he won't answer them so after a bit they catch on and call him only by Peter.
