I don't think Julian is particularly feminine. Like previous posters said, it's a well-established boys' name. I really like it--it sounds noble to me. One of my best friends is a Julian, and he's never encountered any teasing problems that I know of. I don't think it needs a nickname, but you can always use Jules, Jude, or even Ian.Gwen

I really like the name Julian, not enough to have ever used it but I find it to be dashing, masculine, and it reminds me of Julian McMahon (what a stud he is). I'd obviously never use it though, with my daughter's name being Julia! I prefer Julian without any nicknames.
I've never seen or heard of Julian on a girl! I have seen Julianne and Juliana but never Julian.
I'd never hesitate to use any name based on its similarity to the similar girl names. Like other posters have said - Julian is a very common boys name and there aren't any of the feminine versions anywhere close to being as popular.
No, I honestly do not think a male Julian would be teased because of his name.** The opinions expressed above are not meant to be reflective of Nameberry as a whole but are my opinion and mine alone. **
