I love the actress Julianne Moore and I didn't realize that she had constructed the name from family names because her given name (Julie Smith) was taken in the SAG register. It's a wonderful construction that I would have sworn was a name I'd seen or heard before, but in retrospect, realize is unique. It's perfect for a movie star: unique, but with a sense of tradition to it.

Julianne is a French feminine form of Julianus, a name derived from the Latin Julius.
