  1. I don’t know how this one is perceived in Finland and Estonia but it sounds so precious to me(in a good way). I love the Tuulia form especially. It reminds me of the ancient Roman name Tullia.

  2. I agree, I think its a beautiful name. I also love Tullia, which I will also blog about in a future entry. One of these days.
