  • I would just use a different name. I think names that are spelled a little differently are cute, but your aunt has already used that name and it will be pronounced the same, so there's no hiding it haha. Plus that, to me, is spelled TOO differently.

  • Doesn't matter how differently you spell it, it's still the SAME name. Find a different name to keep family peace.

  • It is a cute idea, but I think if you spell it differently like that it will get butchered in school lol. I can already hear people saying "Jewel-LAY-ugh"

  • I think both spelling look like you barfed in the middle of spelling them. Keep the name you chose or not. But to spell it like that is a real disservice to your kid.
    I don't know why people get upset if they someone in thier family chooses the same name as them. It is not like your kid will see the other Julia everyday, and even if she does so what. They would probably think it was cool for them to have the same name as their cousin.

  • I like Juleah. And as for her causing drama... my cousin's name is Henry and so is my brothers. My cousin Henry has a son named Logan and my son is Logun. If it is really a problem, I would find another name, maybe something similar, but not the same... like Laura or something.
