Unlike many masculine/feminine counterparts, both Julia and Julius have deep roots, dating back to the time of the Romans. They come from the name given to all members of the Julii family - a very old and patrician family that claimed descent from Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Men were given the name ("nomen" in Latin, a Roman man's primary name, and a Roman woman's only name) Julius, and women the name Julia (pronounced ee-YOO-lee-us/uh, with the ee-YOO being kind of mashed together). The most famous member of the Julii family was the Gaius Julius Caesar (known most commonly by only his nomen and cognomen -- Julius Caesar) of the late Roman Republic (the family had fallen on hard times by his birth) who conquered Gaul, became dictator of Rome after winning a Civil War, and was shortly after assassinated by conspirators of the Senate. Having no trueborn sons, in his will Caesar adopted his grand-nephew, Gaius Octavius, as his son and heir. Octavius took on the murdered Caesar's name, becoming Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus (from this we derive "Octavian", which is how he is known to history for this period in his life). He went on to avenge his father's death, win another civil war against his father's right-hand man Mark Antony (Marcus Antoninus) and Ptolemaic Egyptian queen Cleopatra (lover of both Mark Antony and Caesar -- she presented her baseborn son by Caesar, Caesarion, as a competitor to Octavian's claim as Caesar's heir), and crown himself as Emperor (taking the name "Augustus" with his ascension, which is how he is known to history for the period covering his reign). Thus, the Roman Republic became the Roman Empire, and all future emperors took the name "Gaius Julius Caesar" as well, even after the initial dynasty of Octavian's family (known as the "Julio-Claudian dynasty") died out. Because of all this, the legacy of the Julii carried on long after the last full-blooded member of the Julii family died, allowing "Julia" to flourish as a popular girl's name all the way to the current year. Julia was also Augustus' daughter's name, signifying the importance the Julii name had for the emperors, not just being a throwaway title (the story of this Julia and her father is a sad, sad tale, by the way, but too long to cover here).Also worth mentioning that Roman women kept their name upon marrying, so any Julia who married into a different family would remain "Julia", though her children would derive their name from their father. For example, Octavian's grandmother (on his mother's side) and Caesar's sister was Julia (known as Julia Minor, her older sister being Julia Major -- this is the typical way to distinguish between Roman sisters) even after she married into the Atii family (Octavian's mother, Caesar's niece, was Atia).
Nice. Better than Julie.
Julia is such a beautiful, feminine name. It’s “youthful” as the meaning suggests, but ages so well! And the nicknames could be Ju, Juju, Jules, and Jude. I would definitely use it for a daughter, it’s a name so full of joy and life.
Julia... Why does it remind me of tulip?
I don’t think of juul when I hear it.
Beautiful name, I love how it can sound nice for a child, But still sound professional as an adult.
Julia Argent, a character in the Netflix series Carmen Sandiego. She is a history buff.
I think Julia is a sweet and pretty name. Common, but not so common to the point you’re tired of it. I’d say it’s a nice name. I also like Juliana, Julie, and Juliet. All of them are gorgeous. (This is my 1000’s comment!)
I love this name. I know it's common, or can feel common but I've actually never met a Julia. It's sweet and short but also elegant. It's cute for a baby and during childhood yet it's still mature for an adult. As a Spanish speaker I tend to like Spanish pronunciations more but in this case I prefer the English pronunciation, much more elegant. In Spanish it's pronounced like Who-lia. But it's still great for bilingual families.
Beautiful and classic name. I love that I could never guess the age of a Julia as it is so timeless! Lovely choice for girls today!
Julia is one of those pretty and timeless names that looks easy to pronounce. When I hear it, I picture an intelligent girl who's good at most school subjects. Julie and Juliana are good alternative names to this one.
It's a nice name.
Julia always seems musical, like someone is singing a song when they say it. It is a classic across time and still very beautiful. I always imagine a redhead with long, flowy curls, hazel eyes and a song in her heart. It is a name that gives feelings of confidence and energy. I would say if you are considering it, use it! It is a great choice in a name in my opinion and will never completely go out of fashion. If you were wanting to give it an extra "umf" factor you could always go with the similar Juliana / Julianna as well which are equally great choices.
Also Croatian:
Better than Julie.
My name. I'm okay with it. It doesn't sound trashy, made up or trendy. It's pretty timeless and classic. It's also easy to pronounce in different languages - I like that. I was born in 2001. My mom loves, loves, loves Julia Roberts (starred in popular movies in the 90's). That's why I got the name.
I like it though I prefer Juliet.
Also Romansh.

Pretty name... I think it could be a nickname for Julliette.
This is my name actually and though I don't like it that much, it's a pretty okay name. I just noticed someone commenting that your kid will be called 'juul'ia like the vape and though I've heard that joke before, it was like once or twice it wasn't a huge deal in my experience. Don't not name your kid Julia because you think they'll be called a vape.

A little common, but I still like it!
I like this name. It's mature, fits great for different aged women, has class and good looks, and a good sound. Also, Julia feels better than Julie, because it feels more complete, serious. I like this name.
One of my earliest name loves. So distinct in my memory, I remember the first time I heard the name Julia as a child and looking up to see who the name belonged to. She had a long Italian last name and I was utterly spellbound by the lyricism of her name said altogether. In general, Julia sounds like a song in the wind, yet it's grounded and simple at the same time. Since my first encounter with Julia, all of the Julias I’ve known from then on have been smart and the quintessential “girl-next-door.”I recommend the name Julia because it’s a firm classic and rolls off the tongue naturally.
I think Julia is a really pretty name with much elegance and class.
Name of the day, 2-6-21.
In Poland, my country, pronunciation is YOO-lya.
Beautiful... Sweet and pretty name.
Julia is such a beautiful name, some people are just...sigh. It is extremely feminine and has such a soothing ring to it. Adore!
Julia is also Estonian. The name day for Julia in Estonia is April 8. [noted -ed]
Pretty but so overused where I’m from.
I would like to issue a warning to anyone considering naming their child 'Julia'.Your child will inevitably will be called 'Juul' and will be addressed by other references to vape. From *at least* middle school through college. (The most formative years of one's life)If that bothers you, please choose a different name. Julia in and of itself is a beautiful name and is an empowering name for a woman, but if you don't want your child to deal with vape name-calling, 'Julia' might not be the best option. However, I know several Julias and some don't like the teasing, but the majority are indifferent and others embrace the nickname, so keep that in mind(Another disclaimer: I hope you like Juju on That Beat by Zay Hilfigrrr and Zayion McCall- If not, get used to it for as long as it is culturally relevant)
Very ugly name. It's like if the name 'Juliette' was turned gross. I work at a game shop and everyone that comes in with the name Julia is just gross. Most 'J' names are very overused, I know about 15 Julias. Plus the name just sounds quite harsh and not soft nor feminine, just my opinion. Most people I know agree.

Julia Hadriana
Julia Claire

Julia Catherine
Julia Francesca
Julia Grace.
I don't like the pronunciation "Yoo-lia", but I love the English pronunciation.
I absolutely love this beautiful name and if I have a daughter in the future, it will be a top contender! I think it would pair beautifully with my own middle name, Rose, which surprisingly enough, two other comments have already mentioned would be a good middle name with Julia! Guess that confirms it’s a good choice haha!
I also think that the nickname Jules is just adorable!
Very beautiful name.
Very pretty! It ages very well and and not too common.
The name Julia is very pretty! I don't think it sounds too old-fashioned for a young girl. It's a timeless name to me. And I don't see it as overused, since I have never met anyone named Julia.
Julia Abelard is an antagonist in the story Fifth Pierrot.
I like AT&T Julia and Acapela Group Julia because they sound American English and German.
Existed for ages, I'm okay with this name, even if I prefer Giulia over this.
Pronounced: JOO-lee-ə (English), JOOL-yə (English), YOO-li-a (Swedish), YOO-lee-a (Classical Latin, Slovak)
My name is Julia! Although the name feels old fashioned to some, the name meaning is "youthful" which I feel is more fitting. My great-grandmother was named Julia so that is where the name came from for me. I get complimented on my name often and cannot imagine myself with a different name.
Also Belarusian, spelled Юлія. You'll find numerous bearers on social media.
Also Occitan: (Source: Institut d'études occitanes.)
A very middle-aged and middle-of-the-road name. Always puts me in mind of an overweight 55 year-old school secretary wearing an old bobbly cardigan to cover her huge backside.The 'ju' part is ugly. It becomes better on the 'lia' but still nothing special.It's hard to imagine a precious baby called Julia these days. Not the ugliest name out there, but it doesn't engender beauty or enchantment.
In my opinion, Julia is a classy, elegant girl’s name. It’s on my favorite girl name list. I love this name and I would probably pair it with Rose to make it sound even more pretty. It’s a shame to see that this name will probably leave the Top 100 because it’s such a beautiful name. On the other hand, it might become a unique name when it becomes uncommon.
I find this name pretty, but kind of girly-girly, and too overused. The meaning of the name is pretty, but a little bit cheesy.
A Julia is a well known fractal pattern as well known to show up in crop circles. Pretty cool.
Julia means youth or young. I was named after my great grandmother and it's been in our family forever. As in I'm a living descendant of Julia the great. My middle name is Victoria so young victory has been a great name for me.
My name is Julia Catherine and as I've grown older, I've only come to love it more. I love that Julia is classic and easily translated to other languages. It is very popular in the US, but I've only met a few others. I think it ages very well, too. It's a sweet name for a child, but still mature and professional for an adult.
I really love this name. I find Julia to be a really beautiful and sophisticated name for a girl! It’s really cute and elegant when paired with the middle name Rose. One day, I will name my future daughter Julia Rose and the name will suit her hopefully. One of my favorite girl name combos. It’s popular because it means “youthful”, and I like that meaning. It’s a pretty name and thus elegant! I like the nicknames Juli and Jules and Julia as a nickname for Juliana.
I love this name! My friend Julia, is here right now and I think it is a very pretty name.
Julia is such a classy and beautiful name. It sounds so fun and the fact that it can be translated in multiple languages throughout the world is a huge plus for me, this is also my mother's birth name so this is in consideration.
This is my name. I always thought it was in a happy medium in regards to popularity- I didn't have a lot of girls with my name in school, but it wasn't unusual enough that I got teased for it. It's sort of timeless. Also, as a classical history student I love having a Roman name!
Julia is a very beautiful and elegant name for a girl! One of my favorite girl names. I absolutely love a few J names as well as Josephine. These are some of my favorite combos paired with Julia for a girl that I love!Julia Taylor

My name is Julia, and I just love the way it sounds! I can also speak in Russian and it sounds very much like my Russian name! Also, I love the song that John Lennon wrote for his mother Julia, after she passed away.
In 2018, 9 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Julia who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 161st most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
It's a pretty name, and I like the meaning youthful.
My name is Julia Isabelle. I see a lot of people saying the name is overused, I personally have only met one other Julia in my life. My mom tells me everyone loves my name but I feel like it sounds a little harsh with the “Ju” sound. I think I would love the name so much more if it weren’t my own. However, I do have it better than a lot of other people!
My sister is called Julia. We call her Juju at home, or Jay/Jay-bug. I think it is a very pretty name, with a strong personality. I would name a future daughter Julia, maybe. My sister's middle name is Liselotte (a French/German form of Elizabeth Charlotte) and I think Julia and Liselotte go really well together. Some other good Julia combinations are:-Julia Destiny
-Julia Sunset
-Isabelle Julia
-Anna-Rose Julia
-Julia Katherine.

One of my best friends is called Julia. I love this name and we call her "Lula" most of the time which I think is a really cool nickname for her.
I was named after a beautiful song by Jesse Collin Young... A song for Juli... I absolutely love my name. And I am so thankful my parents put so much thought into it.
My name is Julia and I think it is a very lovely name. It can be fierce and feisty, beautiful and graceful, delicate and girlish. I am very glad it is my name, for it can take on any personality.
My little sister is seven and her name is Julia. She is a beautiful graceful child; her hair is long and straight; her eyes are large and deep, her nose is pert and her lips are thin and set. She is a tall girl with long legs and very smart. I would advise parents to name their little daughters Julia.
To me, a Julia sounds like an airhead, or a person who's too soft to do anything. The name is super overused and just has an aura of daintiness. Not dainty like ladylike, just dainty as in "can't do anything". It's awful!
Julia is Sesame Street's first ever Autistic character! She is SO CUTE! (I’m biased because I'm Autistic too. Ha.)

Julia is classic and beautiful. I love Julie, too.
I'm grateful my parents chose this name for me, I think they did a good job thinking through this one. One thing that I appreciate about it; it translates well into many languages. So, when I go to Europe, it translates into every country basically. Also, I love that it translates well into French. Overall, I think it's a classy name. For my generation, it was not so common (I was born in the late 70's and went to school in the 80's/90's), Julie was more common then, so I was the only one. With the advent of Julia Roberts, Julia Stiles, etc. It became much more common; I liked seeing all of the little Julia's running around, hah! Plus, John Lennon's song, "Julia" is lovely. It's in the Bible as well, 16th Chapter of Romans. "Juliet" is a little too dramatic, in my opinion.
Julia Michaels is a singer and songwriter whose song "Issues" has been going up the charts this year.

Love Julia! So beautiful, and classy. I would love to meet a little Julia.
The meaning is "youth" or young. Thus the fuzzy beard allegation. A Julia is a fractal pattern known for being repeated in crop circles too! My name is Julia and I HATE being called Julie or Juliette. The name is hard to tease so I like that, but got the nickname Bad-Juju or Java. My name was inherited from my great grandmother so it is an old sounding name with victorian images attached to it. In Hawaiian it becomes Kulia which means "I stand" as in stand firm like a rock.
Julia's are hard to pin down! They are blondes and brunettes, tall and short, but they all seem to be very youthful and kind which is a great tribute to the name!
Julia is a great, classy name but is highly overused!
My sister is named Julia, and my name is Erica. I think that's such a great sister name pairing because they are both 5 letters and end with "a".
My name is Julia (I was named after my great grandmother) but my family uses the nickname "Jules" a lot. I think without bias that it's a very timeless, beautiful and classy name, although it is severely overused nowadays and it does get annoying knowing so many people with the same name and not knowing if someone is referring to you or the other person.
I've always thought this name was boring. It's pretty and mature, but very dull and overused. I prefer Juliet, though not by much.
Julia can be a surname as well, as in the actor Raul Julia who played, amongst many roles, Gomez Addams in the modern movies. Julia can sound like Yoolia, Yuria, Hulia or even Kulia in other languages like Spanish, Japanese, or Hawaiian.
Julia is awesome.
Julia is a beautiful name. A perfect, feminine name. :)
This is my name. A nice, classic name fit for any girl!
Zenobia was a 3rd century queen of Palmyrene empire in Syria and second wife of Odaenathus. Her full name was Julia Aurelia Zenobia and she was a descendant of Cleopatra.
My 14 year old daughter is named Julia. When she was born the doctor who delivered her said to me "Julia is a great name for a little girl and a great name for the president of a company."
I am curious as to how the majority of people pronounce the name Julia. I have always pronounced all three syllables, ju-lee-ah. Most of my family and friends say "jul-ya". In elementary school when she was in music class the teacher even told her that her name had only two syllables. At the young age of eight she stood firm that it had three. I love that baby girl!
I have an 11 year old Julia. Full name Julia Pearl. She likes her name, and goes by Jules. It's been a good naming choice for us, as it is 'normal' enough, but not overdone (in our area at least).
Julia Blaze (also known as Gouenji Yuuka) is a character in Inazuma Eleven.
Julia is a very beautiful name for a girl and it ages very well. If I ever have I daughter, I'd totally consider using this name!
I love the name Julia. It's my middle name.
I just adore this name. I am pronouncing it "joo lee uh"/ "jool ee uh". I've never heard anyone pronounce it "jool yuh". Anyways, if I were to ever have a daughter I would fight for this to be her name... Julia is used in countries all over the world; it is classy, beautiful, unmistakenly feminine, and would be easy for a young child to learn to spell. I love that it's never been trendy... I believe it's popularity has been relatively steady over the years. A Julia could be a doctor or an engineer or a ballerina or an artist. Not much rhymes with Julia so hopefully even the most creative bully couldn't come up with much to tease a little Julia. There are some decent nicknames as well: Jules, Lia, LiLi (like lee lee)I just adore this name!
The name Julia sounds so elegant. It is definitely on the top of my list!
I like this name. It's cool. It's classical and has a long history behind it. I think of Julia in George Orwell's 1984 and the songs titled 'Julia' by The Beatles and another by Chris Rhea for his daughter. It also reminds me of Julia Gillard - Australian ex-Prime Minister. Overall, it's a good name with a long history.
Id like it if it wasnt so incredibly overused
I mean it's not that great anyway. neither do I like it with the English pronunciation of it.
So pretty and classic, and suits all ages!
Beautiful and classic, Julia will always hold up. She has already outdone the once tremendously popular Julie, which is now extremely dated. Julia is regal and strong, yet feminine.
Truthfully, I like the name Julia a lot. Sadly, it's also the name of a really mean girl at school. Therefore, the name sort of is bittersweet... :(
Very pretty, girly name.
I've loved this name ever since Whitney Houston played Julia Biggs in "The Preacher's Wife." A beautiful woman with an equally beautiful voice.
Julia is a lovely, melodic name. Shame it's not that common any more.
I like this name a lot, especially when pronounced the German way (YOO-lee-ah). I'd use that form, for sure,
A boring housewife name. When I think of Julia, I imagine a stressed mother vacuuming a living room. No. I don't particularly like this name. It's rather boring. For that person who said its 'soothing'.. No. Just no. It's dull.
My name's Julia, and I think it's way over-used, and so are all the nicknames, Jules, Juju, etc. The only original one I've gotten is J-dizzle.
My name is Julianna, and I hate it whenever someone calls me Julia as a nickname. Julia sounds a bit too prissy for my taste. I prefer to be called by Julie or Jules.
Julia is one of my favorite names - one can use it almost everywhere in the world without people getting totally confused when reading or listening to it. It's a popular name, and not in a bad way (not for me). I like international names because people can just adapt the pronunciation according to what their language sounds. This is a bonus, I think.
Whenever I hear this name I think of Julia Flyte from "Brideshead Revisited". Her character encapsulates my impression of Julia - classy, elegant, understated.
Also used in Croatia.
Elegant and simple. Great choice.
Personally, I don't like this name. Where I come from, there are many Julias. It reminds me of middle aged women that live in suburbs. Nope. I'd never name my daughter a name as common as Julia.
Julia Flyte is a character in the book, TV series, and movie "Brideshead Revisited".
I prefer this as a surname or male middle name.
OMG! I love this name! One of my faves. So feminine, sweet, classy, upperclass, fun to say. I like these short forms of Julia: Jule(s), Julie, JuJu, Jay, Lia. Also sounds like a princess, queen, or aristocrats name. This is one of those names where popularity doesn't matter, it's so perfect.
I think Julia is a beautiful, aristocratic name with an old-fashioned charm. I like how it sounds like _jewel_. Julia makes me picture a Victorian lady with rich, red tresses, an alabaster complexion, wearing a beautiful ruby necklace. It has a Victorian aesthetic and glamour, which I like very much.
"Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter" is a novel by Mario Vargos Llosa published in 1977. It is about an 18 year old student who falls in love and has an affair with his 32 year old aunt, Julia. The novel is based on the author's real life experience. It was turned into a Hollywood film in 1990, under the title "Tune in Tomorrow" in the US (elsewhere same title as the book).
Call me a ultra name freak, but I want to cry when I meet people with this name BECAUSE I love it so much! I just wish it wasn't so common! It's on my top 5 favorite names! It is SO beautiful. People with this name should be proud. It's my favorite common name.
To give you an idea of Julia being over-used, I was born in 1992, around the same time as most of my classmates. Three Julias in my year spring to mind plus another girl I know who lives farther away. And that's only in my year. When I searched for all the Julias in my school on Facebook, there were 36 including the girls in my year. Please wait for this name to die down before using it. There are way too many people with this name.
This is my name. I adore it. I would never consider changing my name. It is very calming and soothing. A great thing about this name is that it stays good from as a child to a senior. Another variant-- Julie, is also good, but I prefer Julia.
I would love to name my kid Julia. It's not common, the only place I know where it is common Is Deal or No Deal where there are lots of Julias, Julies, Juliannas, Juliannes etc. I think they mean to get all of them, because it's not common.
Julia originally comes from Latin meaning 'YOUTHFUL'.
I really like the name Julia, and I don't think it is very common either - I don't know any Julias. I know a lot of Katherines and Jessicas, but no Julias!
Not common to me - I guess it depends on where you live. I know only one Julia, close to forty by now. One of my favorite names - it's beautiful and it ages well. That's hard to find in a name these days.
Not common, actually - I know only one Julia.

Julia Urania or Urania (Greek: ¦Ç ¦©¦Ï¦Ô¦Ë¨¬¦Á ¦¯¦Ô¦Ñ¦Á¦Í¨¬§Ñ, Latin: Iulia Urania or IVLIA URANIA) was a woman who lived in the 1st century. Urania married the Roman client king Ptolemy of Mauretania. Ptolemy of Mauretania was an only grandson to African King Juba I of Numidia, Greek Ptolemaic Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt and the youngest grandson to Roman Triumvir Mark Antony.
Julia Bodina was a Roman Freedwoman from North Africa who lived in the 1st century. She was a former slave in the household of Roman client queen Julia Urania and Roman client king Ptolemy of Mauretania.Little is known on her origins and life. In Cherchell Algeria, a funeral inscription has been found of Bodina’s. Cherchell was then known as Caesaria, the capital of Mauretania in the Roman Empire. In the funeral inscription, Bodina ascribed Julia Urania as Queen Julia Urania.According to the inscription, she appeared to have taken the gentilicium of her former master, Julia Urania. She could have been a former slave from the Royal Family of Emesa (modern Homs, Syria). Julia Urania was ascribed as queen as a local courtesy or probably a dedication to honor her memory. This indicates that Bodina was a loyal former slave.

This is a beautiful, nicely simple, classy and elegant name that you can't really go wrong with. The trouble with this name, for me, is that I associate it with the misfortunate character in Nineteen Eighty-Four, and I can't shake off that association. It's such a tragic story, and her fate is horrible.
People keep on saying that Julia, as a name, is over-used. Well, I have never met a Julia, & neither have my 4 brothers.
NO WAY! I can't believe nobody mentioned the Julia in the book "1984", my favorite book of all time (currently, next week, it'll probably be something different).
I agree that this name sounds beautiful pronounced jool-ee-a. Jool-ya is just not as pretty and can sometimes sound annoying.
I like this name, and I know and Julia. Her name is said like "Joo-leah." though. Everyone calls her "Jewl-ya" though, her mom is the only one who really says her name right. "Joo-leah", but people try to get it right, and it comes out all funny, and she laughs about it. I love this name. It's sweet, although the "JOO" sound does sound a smidge harsh, I still love it.
My sister's name is Julia and I think it is very pretty. Especially when you say it with a y in the beginning. I never really thought it was that popular, but then I looked it up and that made me think about it and I realized that I know a lot of Julia's. I like Julia way more than Juliet, which I think is far too common in other countries and all around a heavily dramatic name.
Pronounced as "YOO-lyah".

This name is so popular, yet I've only known one Julia in my entire life! I really like this name though, it's very pretty.
I think this name is pretty, only if it's pronounced ju-lee-a. Not jooool-ya. That sounds so harsh to me.
My mother's name is Julia, and she doesn't like it much because she thinks the "JOO" sound is harsh and un-lovely. She goes by Julie and my dad calls her Jules (just because it springs to the lips easily). I think it's pretty though, and I don't know of that many Julias.
My best friend's name is Julia. I'm totally jealous because everyone loves her name. We also call her Jewlz for short and her nephew calls her Aunt J!

I named my 2 year old Julia, I agree that there are a lot of Julia's out there but it is a sweet name, and I like it! At least it's not a made up name or a trendy name that a teacher has a hard time spelling HA HA that is way overused!
Very nice but very over-used.
