Gillian is a feminine name of Latin origin meaning “youthful.” It is an Anglicized version of the Latin name Juliana, which means “youthful” or “Jove’s child.” This sprightly name was very common in the Middle Ages, so much so that Gill or Jill became a term used to refer to girls, as Jack was used for boys. Although this 16th-century name has been in decline since its Medieval popularity, Gillian is a perfect choice for parents who wish to revive this classic moniker and bring back its youth.
