    • 1813 George Crabbe, Tracy, Poems by George Crabbe, Adolphus William Ward,The University Press 1907, page 455:
      The first-born Child had every dawning Grace / And promis'd Beauty in her form and face. / "We'll call her Julie if you please, my dear," / The Mother cry'd, "I doat on Julie Vere." / "What! no Remembrance of her Aunt! for Shame! / You doat indeed! be Barbara her name!"
    • 1917 Grace Flandrau, Cousin Julia, D. Appleton and Company, page 3:
      "I loathe the name of Julia. Julie, in the French way, is quite pretty, but Julia! - "
      "Call her Cousin Julie then; I've no doubt she'll prefer it. She's nothing if not progressive, I believe."
    • 2000 Jayne Anne Phillips: Mother Kind: page 156:
      They were called Jim & Julie, professionally. It seemed such a waste to deal in fantasy, in illusion and pretend, and not christen one's endeavor more suggestively. Kate wondered if their real names were Letitia and Sylvester, or Cleopatra and Mandrake; perhaps they'd gone undercover with white-bread names in quest of posh children's parties and Yankee suitability.
