This prevalent Christian name during the fourth century may have been taken from a prominent Roman family’s surname. Some etymologists say Julius may be referencing the Roman god Jupiter/Jove. Julius Caesar was a military leader who became the all-powerful dictator of the Roman republic and was famously stabbed to death in the senate. Julius was a hot name at the turn of the 20th century, but its popularity has since slowed down. If you're looking for a dignified, elegant name with an interesting history, Julius may be just the thing.
