Is this a surname or a popular name for girls in 1898?

Page 521 of the “New Dictionary of American Family Names,” by Elsdon C. Smith, published 1973, treats the surnames TULLY & TULLEY as surnames derived from place names in Scotland and Ireland. These do not exactly match the spelling you have in your family.

My name is Tullie. It is an old name in my family. My family move from Charters France in the sixteen hundreds.

There was a 19th century fad for Classical names and one of those would be for Marcus Tullius Cicero, the Roman orator and statesman, known in English as Tully.

There were also a number of French Tullies in my family, and I can trace it back only so far as a spinster daughter of my 4th G-Grandmother, who was b. at the end of the 18th C.
Tullie and Tulita were her nicknames. Her niece and a number of other descendants were named "Marie Antoinette" in combination with other names and nicknamed "Tullie" and it seems to have become a given name along the way.

I think it is quite beautiful!
