Sorry, no answer, a google search only led me to this.
(f.) - feminine form of JULIAN
(q.v.), thus Yulien; or Nessime (see JULIAN
(m.) - Yulion, see NWHAGEN; I was suggested that it may also come from Latin 'youthful', if so, than Nessimon (nessima "youthful")
So I guess Julie
= Yulie (boring) or Nessime (sounds negative).
: One of several variants of the Latin name Julius
. According to one book at least, it means "descendant of Julus" (a king). Knowing that in Latin j corresponds to y in Tolkien's transliterations, this name can be Quenyarized as Yul (dropping the Latin nominative ending). To this name we add -ion "-son" (YÔ). Yulion sounds almost like Julian
, doesn't it?
Actually, most books I've read say "Julius
" means "downy-haired" - I suppose that could be taken to mean "youthful. I've never heard the "descendant of Julus" version.
