Origin:Latin
Meaning:The eighth
A stately name steeped in Latin origins, Octavian is a masculine title that means “the eighth.” This handsome name comes from the gens Octavia, a plebeian family in Ancient Rome that, over time, rose in power. A name usually reserved for the eighth child of the family, Octavian is a befitting choice if baby is number eight in your home. Fun fact: Caesar Augustus of the Roman Empire was known as Octavian before he changed his title to rebrand his fruitful reign. The more modern Octavio and classic Octavius are also zesty options, but there’s no denying the charm and sophistication Octavian exudes.
