Multiple sources claim that this name is ultimately derived from the Latin name Iulius (see Julius), which is possible indeed. The suffix -on of the name seems to indicate that it must have gone via Greek (i.e. a hellenized form), however. It should also be noted that the probable connection with the Greek language also makes it possible that Iulon is ultimately derived from an authentic Greek name instead. This would then probably be Ioulos. Finally, known bearers of this name include prince Iulon of Georgia (1760–1816) and Iulon Gagoshidze (b. 1935), a Georgian archaeologist, scholar and politician.
