Julian is a gentlemanly contender who feels more approachable than the dated and imposing Julius. The name rose to prominence through the last pagan emperor of Rome as well as several saints. Strokes lead singer Julian Casablancas and NFL star Julian Edelman brought fame and glory to the name, which rose to notoriety with Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. It’s also a popular pick for celebrity parents, including Robin Thicke and Paula Patton, Robert De Niro, Jerry Seinfeld, and Lisa Kudrow. For an elegant French twist, try spelling it with E instead of A.
