At first this name may be a tough one to pronounce, but once you get it down, its soft, flowing sound will stay with you. It’s JOO-lee-ahna, a descendant of Julia. It first hit the popularity polls in 2007, a year after Giuliana DePandi (now Giuliana Rancic) began working as a news anchor on E! Americans, whether of Italian descent or not, began giving the name to their daughters in record numbers. Who could blame them? It has so much Italian flavor and charm, you could practically eat it!
