Julius Origin and Meaning

The name Julius is a boy's name of Latin origin meaning "youthful, downy-bearded".

Immortal through its association with the ancient Caesar (it was his clan name), Julius may still lag behind Julian, but is definitely starting to make a comeback, and in fact feels more cutting edge, in line with the current trend for Latin -us endings.

A common Christian name in Roman times—as in Pope Julius I—it was rarely used in English speaking countries until the nineteenth century. Some Julius connections: basketball great Julius "Dr. J" Erving, characters in the Artemis Fowl book series and television show Everybody Hates Chris, Groucho Marx's birth name, the comic monkey created by Paul Frank, and the Orange Julius drink.
