Octavius is a boy's name of Latin origin. It is related to octavo, which means "eighth." If baby arrives on the eighth day of a month, Octavius is a great way to mark their birthdate. One of the most famous Roman Emperors and nephew of Julius Caesar was Caesar Augustus, originally called Gaius Octavius. Octavius is also understandably a fictional character in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, making this name an excellent choice for literary and history fans, alike. Wherever they go, little Octavius is sure to turn heads with this striking namesake.
