Octavia is a girl’s name of Latin origins. An imperial name, Octavia was commonly used in Roman royal families. It became popular during the Victorian era as a given name for an eighth child, as Octavia means “eighth.” In modern times, when fewer families have eight children, Octavia is a beautiful and slightly unusual choice that will have baby feeling distinguished on the playground.
