Julian is a form of Julius (i.e. Julius Ceasar) and the family clan name of several powerful Roman emperors. In the New Testament, Roman centurion Julius saved Paul’s life during a hazardous voyage. This classic name is at its peak of popularity, which isn’t too surprising considering the masculine and slightly exotic ring to its name.
